Explain in simple terms the difference between a perimeter and a parameter - Do you know?
Perimeter is the complete outside edge of a plane geometry shape or a property lot, etc.; a parameter is any one of these definitions: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/parameter.
perimeter: This is the sum of all the sides of an object like a fenced in yard
parameter: This is a value that you send to a computer program or a mathematical equation. Example: Notepad.exe c:\somefile.txt
Notepad.exe is a program in Windows to open text files
c:\somefile.txt is a parameter you are providing to the program
perimeter and parameter are completely different. Perimeter refers to the total length of the outside edge of a shape or just simply referring to the outside edge of an area. Parameter has a number of definitions, ranging from computers to areas that something is allowed to operate under
the calculation of a perimeter can be done on a triangle, rectangle, circle or formula
whereas a parameter has to do with statistics and variables such as in the analysis of a population

I find most people are clueless. They say they are atheist, but can't properly form an argument as to WHY, or they say they are agnostic, with zero clue as to WHAT that is.Ignorance, above all, is our weakness. Not religion. Although ignorance and religion are good bedfellows.
