Perimeter = 2 * length + 2 * width

This is how you find the perimeter (distance around) a rectangle.

Suppose you want to put a border around a room. If the room is 15 feet long and 12 feet wide, then you'd figure the perimeter this way:

P = 2l + 2w

P = (2 * 15) + (2 * 12)

P = 30 + 24

P = 54

So -- you'd need 54 feet of the border for the room.
