Distance for outlet question


So what i know is that you need an outlet every 12 feet and every 6 feet from a door or opening. unless the wall is less than 2 feet

question is do i measure and treat each wall as its own? or are they considered continuous if they bud up again one another?

example

i have a corner 90 degree. one wall on the corner is 11 feet the other is next to a door and is 2.5 feet.

If i place one outlet on the 11 foot wall about 3 feet from the 90 corner does that meet the requirement for both walls? i have less than 12 feet without a outlet and its within 6 feet of the opening to the outside on the short wall?


Or is the 11 foot wall its own and needs a plug, and the 2.5 foot wall is its own and needs a plug?

Thanks for the help you guys are great!
