Need some revision help.

    I'm doing some Maths revision for my impending GCSE tests later this year. I have a (few) question(s) that I need explained to me in very simple easy methods.

    Beware - there will probably be more questions.

    How do you find the perimeter of a shape?

    Multiply all the sides together.


    Side 1 * side 2 * side 3 = perimeter.

You walk 20m to get from one corner to the next, then from that corner to the second corner you walk 30m, and then from the second to your starting pointyou walk 40m. The distance you walked is _____ ?
