  1. Perimeter is the outside of a shape .
    The tool you would use is a trundle wheel because you can go around the whole MUGA but if you used rulers there would definitely be no rulers to fit the whole MUGA .
    For the book I would use a ruler because if I used a trundle wheel it would count meters but a book wouldn’t be meters.

    The farmer would need 36 m of fence for the farm .
    The perimeter of Oliver’s bedroom 15 cm
    Andy needs 76 m of ribbon to tie around the cake.
    Ellie will travel 230m around the field.

  2. A perimeter is the length around something
    I will measure the MUGA with a trundle wheel because there won’t be enough rulers and with a book it would be a ruler because a trundle wheel because it is big

  3. Perimeter is the length around an object to find the perimeter you we used a trundle wheel metre stick and a measuring tape.for the MUGA you is e a trundle wheel because it is sooo big.

  4. A perimeter is the length around an object,to find the perimeter we can use a trundle wheel,a meter stick or a ruler and to measure the MUGA we should use a trundle wheel because it’s endless. To measure a book I would use a ruler and because a book is about a few centre metres and a ruler measures in centre metres.
