• if you have 100,000,000,000 for your total length and width of the shape what would be the perimeter of that shape.
• The perimeter of a polygon is the sum of the lengths of its sides, so if we know all the side lengths we just add them together to find the perimeter.

The shape you're describing seems to be a square with side length 100,000,000,000, in which case the perimeter would be
100,000,000,000 + 100,000,000,000 + 100,000,000,000 + 100,000,000,000 =
= 400,000,000,000
