Isosceles Trapezium

Right Trapezium

To find the perimeter of a scalene trapezium, you need to add up the lengths of all its four sides. Unlike a regular trapezium, in a scalene trapezium, none of the sides are equal in length.

Let's assume the four sides of the scalene trapezium are labeled a, b, c, and d. The perimeter (P) of the scalene trapezium can be found using the following formula:

P = a + b + c + d

For example, if the lengths of the sides of the scalene trapezium are 5 cm, 8 cm, 6 cm, and 10 cm, respectively, then its perimeter would be:

P = 5 cm + 8 cm + 6 cm + 10 cm = 29 cm

Therefore, the perimeter of the given scalene trapezium is 29 cm.

The formula for determining the perimeter of a scalene trapezium/trapezoid is defined as:
