Perimeter = a + b + c

Area = 1/2×Base×Height=1/2 ah

Heron’s formula:

Area = √[(s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c)]

Where, s = semi perimeter = (a + b + c)/2

Area of equilateral triangle = √3/4 (side)2



Perimeter = 2(l +b)

Area = l × b

Length of diagonal = √(l2+b2 )



Perimeter = 4a

Area = a2

Length of diagonal = a√2



Perimeter = 2(a+b)

Area = ah1 = bh2



Perimeter = 4a = 2√(d12+d22 )

Area = 1/2 d1 d2



Let AC = d

Area = 1/2 d(h1 h2 )



Area = 1/2 h(a+b)



Area of circle (A) = πr2

Circumference (C) = 2πr

Diameter (D) = 2r



Total Surface Area (T.S.A.): The area of surface from which cuboids is formed. There are six faces (rectangular), eight vertices and twelve edges in a cuboids.

Total Surface Area (T.S.A.) = 2[l×b+b×h+h×l]

Lateral Surface Area(L.S.A.) = 2h[l+b]

Volume of cuboids = l×b×h

Length if diagonal = √(l2+b2+h2 )



i. C.A.S. of cylinder = (2πr)×h=2πrh

ii. Total Surface Area (T.S.A.):

T.A.S. = C.A.S. + area of circular top & bottom

= 2πr(h+r)

iii. Volume of cylinder = Area of base × height

=πr2 h



T.S.A. = S.A. = 4πr2

Volume = 4/3 πr3
