In geometry, area is the 2-dimensional space or region occupied by a closed figure, while perimeter is the distance around a closed figure i.e. the length of the boundary. For example, the area can be used to calculate the size of the carpet to cover the whole floor of a room. Perimeter can be used to calculate the length of fence required to surround a yard or garden. Two shapes may have the same perimeter, but different areas or may have the same area, but different perimeters.

In simplest terms: area is the amount of space inside a shape, and perimeter is the distance around the outside of the shape.

Why two dimensional. Is it possible three dimensions. If not. Give reason

Perimeter is total distance all around the geometrical figure while Area is multiplication of two lengths.

what about the area of triangle. can we say that area of triangle is also the multiplication of 2 sides?

Main difference between perimeter and area is that the perimeter is one-dimensional while the area is two-dimensional.

DPerimeter is a total distance all around the geometrical figure.Cm and meter is it’s unit while area is the measure of space occupied by the geometrical figure.It is multiplication of two lengths.Its unit is square meter or square CM.
