# Formula meaning in math explained

Learn and know what is formula meaning? In mathematics. We know that every chapter in math will be having some formulas, so without formulas there is no math. Always our teachers will be saying that we should learn formulas. So it tells that how much importance formulas have. In physics and chemistry also we have formulas for particular concepts. So it is clear that every where we have formulas. Do you know how to say or explain formula meaning? If anyone asks what is the formula for perimeter of a rectangle then we can say the answer for it. Up to this it’s ok but did you thought anytime regarding what is the meaning of the word “formula”. No we won’t think about it because, always our concentration will be on knowing the formula for a particular thing or a particular concept only not on the word “formula”. But we should know the meaning of that word.  So now we will know formula meaning.

## Formula meaning as follows:

An equation used for finding the value is called as a formula. If there is one formula i.e. in singular form we say formula and in plural form we say formulae.

For example,

V = lbh is the formula for finding volume of the cuboid. A = ${ r }^{ 2 }$ is the formula used for finding the Area of a circle, P = 4a is the formula for finding perimeter of a square, S.I = $\frac { PTR }{ 100 }$ is the formula for finding simple interest, C = 2r is the formula for finding circumference of a circle, A = l x b is the formula for finding area of a rectangle, A = bh is the formula for finding area of parallelogram and so on there exists so many formulas in mathematics.

I hope now you have known the meaning of the word “formula”.
