# Why would two shapes have equal areas and perimeters?

There is no particular reason. In fact, in general, two shapes will have different areas or perimeters or both.

## Related Questions If the shapes are similar, such are all circles or all squares, those with the largest perimeters would also have the largest areas. However, in general there is no direct relation. For example a 2 by 2 rectangle has an area of 4 and a perimeter of 8, but a 2000 by 0.0005 rectangle has an area of 1 and a perimeter of 4000.001. An acre is 43,560 sq ft. It can have endless shapes and perimeters. Ex - 290.4 x 150 would have a peremeter of 880.8 feet I believe they do, a congruent figure have to be the same shape and size, so they would have to have equal surfaceareas. It isn't really a square if it has no equal sides. A trapezoid can be drawn that has no equal sides, some can have two sides equal. Quadrilaterals include those 4-sided shapes with no sides equal but they also include all other 4-sided shapes. You would need to specify "Quadrilateral with no equal sides".  you would have to use a ruler and .get go over your work and. then you would have to add up you answer. While many shapes can be divided into more than four equal pieces, the most common shape with that characteristic would be a pentagon, which has five equal pieces, or fifths. Another shape that would be divided into a different amount of equal pieces would be a triangle, with three equal pieces or thirs. And a third would be a hexagon, with six equal pieces, or sixths. I would think that shapes are positive Plane shapes you draw on paper. Solid shapes can be picked up. Examples of plane shapes would be circle, square, triangle, etc. Examples of solid shapes would be a sphere, a cube, pyramid, and so on. &#9632; Two different types of shapes would be a circle and a square. they differ from each other in the fact that a circle's shape is perpetual as a square has four equal sides and four corners.   I assume 202 yards is the perimeter. It really depends on the shape of the figure - whether it is a square, rectangle, circle, elipse, etc. In the case of a rectangle, for example, this would also depend on the length to width ratio. In summary, different figures have different perimeters for the same area (or different areas for the same perimeter).I assume 202 yards is the perimeter.

In summary, different figures have different perimeters for the same area (or different areas for the same perimeter). There are multiple shapes that meet this condition. The most obvious one being the cube, with six square faces of equal size. Another one would be a rhombohedron, which would be like a sheared cube. It has six equal faces, but they are rhombuses. Its 4th side would have to be circular in order to comply with the given requirements Infinite, but if the dimensions have to be integers, then it would be 8 and 10. A type of irregular shape, including scalene triangles, and many other shapes. Circles would work too. all triangles fit this description, as would many irregular (not all sides are of equal length) versions of shapes with more sides Not all shapes are polygons. Polygons are shapes that have to have straight sides and be closed figures. So a shape that is curved would not be a polygon. You can imagine any number of shapes that have these properties. A simple shape would be an elipse.You can imagine any number of shapes that have these properties. A simple shape would be an elipse.You can imagine any number of shapes that have these properties.

A simple shape would be an elipse. because the Romans thought it would be a good name because it's interesting! If they were the same shapes and sizes then life would be exceedingly boring. You would call the group of shapes which has at least one line of symmetry symmetrical shapes. Stars, circles, and rectangles are considered symmetrical shapes. There are many geometric shapes. But the square, octagon, rectangle, pentagon, triangle, circle, hexagon and heptagon would be considered the main shapes. It would take a long time for me to explain everything, but there is a show on history channel called How did States get Their Shapes and I think it would help. :)
