Summary The article provides information on the misconceptions in solving perimeter, area, volume and mass and on their respective interventions. Solving the perimeter of a rectangle of a lesser area through multiplication using its formula but may double the sum of its length and width to get its answer. Working out for the area of an irregular figure or a loop is solved by counting the unit-squares contained in the loop.
