Mensuration is the branch of mathematics which deals with the study of Geometric shapes , Their area , Volume and

different parameters in geometric objects. Some important mensuration formulas are: 1. Area of rectangle (A) = length(l) * Breath(b) 2. Perimeter of a rectangle (P) = 2 * (Length(l) + Breath(b)) 3. Area of a square (A) = Length (l) * Length (l) 4. Perimeter of a square (P) = 4 * Length (l) 5. Area of a parallelogram(A) = Length(l) * Height(h)

6. Perimeter of a parallelogram (P) = 2 * (length(l) + Breadth(b)) 7. Area of a triangle (A) = (Base(b) * Height(b)) / 2

And for a triangle with sides measuring ³a´ , ³b´ and ³c´ , Perimeter = a+b+c and s = semi perimeter = perimeter / 2 = (a+b+c)/2 And also . Area of triangle = This formulas is also knows as ³Heroe¶s formula´.
