## How do you measure the size of an object?

Measure **any two sides (length, width or height) of an object** or surface in order to get a two-dimensional measurement. For example, a rectangle that has a width of 3 feet and height of 4 feet is a two-dimensional measurement. The dimensions of the rectangle would then be stated as 3 ft. (width) x 4 ft.

## Which way is length and width?

**Length is describing how long something is** while width is describing how wide an object is. 2.In geometry, length pertains to the longest side of the rectangle while width is the shorter side.

## How do you change the size of an object?

**Quickly resize a picture, shape, WordArt, or other object**

- To keep the object’s center in the same place, press and hold the OPTION key while you drag the sizing handle.
- To maintain an object’s proportions while resizing it, press and hold the SHIFT key while you drag a corner sizing handle.

## How do you increase the size of an object?

Short answer: as you increase an object’s size, you are increasing its **volume by the increase cubed** (volume is a 3D quantity) and its surface are by the increase squared (surface area is a 2D quantity).

## What is length and width?

Length refers to the distance between two ends of an object. **Width refers to the measuring the breadth or how wide the object is**. Length can be measured in geometry by considering the biggest side of the object. Width can be measured in geometry by considering the smallest side of the object.

## What is the perimeter formula?

Perimeter, Area, and Volume

Table 1 . Perimeter Formulas | ||
---|---|---|

Shape | Formula | Variables |

Square | P=4s |
s is the length of the side of the square. |

Rectangle | P=2L+2W | L and W are the lengths of the rectangle’s sides (length and width). |

Triangle | a+b+c | a,b , and c are the side lengths. |

## What goes first length or width?

The Graphics’ industry standard is **width by height (width x height)**. Meaning that when you write your measurements, you write them from your point of view, beginning with the width. That’s important. When you give us instructions to create an 8×4 foot banner, we’ll design a banner for you that is wide, not tall.

## How do you find the width if you know the area and length?

To calculate the length and width of a rectangle first, calculate the value of width ‘w’ by using the area of rectangle formula that is, **‘w = A/l’.**
