# Java Program to find Perimeter of a Rectangle

Write a Java Program to find the Perimeter of a Rectangle with an example. This example allows entering rectangle width and height, and the addition of both multiplies by two gives the area. Thus, the Perimeter of a Rectangle equals 2 * (width + height).

```package Area;

import java.util.Scanner;

public class PerimOfRectangle1 {
private static Scanner sc;

public static void main(String[] args) {
sc = new Scanner(System.in);

double width, height, Perimeter;

System.out.print("Enter the Width =  ");
width = sc.nextDouble();

System.out.print("Enter the Height = ");
height = sc.nextDouble();

Perimeter = 2 * (width + height);

System.out.format("The Perimeter = %.2f", Perimeter);
}
}```
``````Enter the Width =  17
Enter the Height = 44
The Perimeter  = 122.00``````

In this program, we declared a rectanglePerimeter function that returns the rectangle perimeter.

```package Area;

import java.util.Scanner;

public class PerimOfRectangle2 {
private static Scanner sc;

public static void main(String[] args) {
sc = new Scanner(System.in);

float width, height, Perimeter;

System.out.print("Enter the Rectangle Width =  ");
width = sc.nextFloat();

System.out.print("Enter the Rectangle Height = ");
height = sc.nextFloat();

Perimeter = rectanglePerimeter(width, height);

System.out.format("The Perimeter of a Rectangle = %.2f", Perimeter);
}

public static float rectanglePerimeter(float width, float height) {
return 2 * (width + height);
}
}```
