### How do you find the sides of an octagon with perimeter?

You say these things to yourself:
-- "The perimeter is the distance all the way around the
octagon."
-- "The octagon has eight sides."
-- "So, if it's a 'regular' octagon, then all the sides are the
same length,
and each side must be 1/8 of the perimeter."
-- If it's not a 'regular' octagon, then it has some longer
sides and some shorter
ones, and the perimeter doesn't help me find the lengths of the
sides.

### What is the perimeter of octagon?

It depends how big it is. But the rule is: Side length x 8 =
Perimeter.
For example, if one side was eleven centimeters long then the
perimeter would be P= 11 x 8. It would be eighty-eight
centimeters.
Note: This rule only works for regular octagons. If you need to
find the perimeter of an irregular octagon, then you have to
measure each side and add up the measurements of each side.
