# Rectangle Geometry

Calculate the **perimeter of a rectangle** using our Perimeter Calculator, or try calculating it yourself with the formulas provided.

A rectangle is similar to an ordinary rectangle (See Rectangle definition)with the addition that its position on the coordinate planeis known. Each of the four vertices (corners) have known From these coordinates, various properties such as width, height etc can be found. By definition, a rectangle is a plane figure with four straight sides and four right angles, especially one with unequal adjacent sides. And a square certainly fits this definition. In fact, a square a special kind of rectangle (check out the Is a Square a Rectangle? Video below for a more in-depth explanation.
