December 27, 2020 | education

| The perimeter of a figure is the sum of the lengths of all its sides. A rectangle consists of four pairwise equal sides. The perimeter of the rectangle is calculated using the formula:

P = 2 * (a + b), where

a is the length of the rectangle;

b is the width of the rectangle.

Substitute in this formula a = 22 m and b = 14 m:

P = 2 * (22 + 14) = 2 * 36 = 72 (m).

Answer: The perimeter of this rectangle is 72 meters.
