The circumference of a circle (the perimeter of a circle):  
The circumference of a circle is the perimeter  the distance around the outer edge. Circumference =

How to find the perimeter of strangely shaped objects:  
Let's find the perimeter of this thing... We, basically, need to add up all the outside edges. And we'll just have to do that piece by piece! 

Here are all the missing pieces: Now, add them all up! 5 + 8 + 6.28 + 6 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 3 = 34.28
