00:00:01.540 --> 00:00:03.580
Find the perimeter of the figure.
00:00:05.700 --> 00:00:10.910
The perimeter is the distance all the way around the figure.
00:00:12.560 --> 00:00:28.850
We find the perimeter by adding all the side lengths together: 23 centimeters plus 20 centimeters plus 16 centimeters plus 11 centimeters.
00:00:29.540 --> 00:00:38.340
Adding all of these together, in the units place, three plus zero plus six plus one equals 10.
00:00:38.520 --> 00:00:41.220
Write down your zero, carry your one.
00:00:42.470 --> 00:00:51.640
Then, we move on and add our tens place: one plus two plus two plus one plus one equals seven.
00:00:52.590 --> 00:00:54.270
We’re working with centimeters.
00:00:54.310 --> 00:00:56.820
So we also bring down our units.
00:00:58.130 --> 00:01:04.570
The perimeter, the distance all the way around this trapezoid, is 70 centimeters.
