### Practice Set 44

1.) If the length and breadth of a rectangle are doubled, how many times the perimeter of the old rectangle will that of the new rectangle be?

ANS:

Let,

Length of a rectangle be x.

Breadth of a rectangle be y.

If we doubled the length of a rectangle is 2x.

Also we doubled the breadth of a rectangle is 2y.

We know,

Perimeter of a rectangle = 2 x (L + B)

Perimeter of a rectangle 1 = 2 x ( x + y)

Now,

Perimeter of a rectangle 2 = 2 x (2x + 2y)

Perimeter of a rectangle 2 = 4 x (x + y)

From above we conclude that,

The perimeter of the old rectangle will doubled of that the new rectangle.

2.) If the side of a square is tripled, how many times the perimeter of the first square will that of the new square be?

ANS:

We know,

Perimeter of a square = 4 x side

Let,

Square 1 has side x.

Perimeter of a square 1 = 4 x X

Perimeter of a square 1 = 4x

Now,

The side of a square is tripled

The side of a square = 3x

Perimeter of a square = 4 x side

Perimeter of a square 2 = 4 x 3x

Perimeter of a square 2 = 12x

From above we conclude that,

The perimeter of the first square will be 3 times that of the new square.

3.) Given alongside is the diagram of a playground. It shows the length of its sides. Find the perimeter of the playground.

ANS:

Perimeter is the sum of all outside boundaries of a figure.

Given that a playground having outside dimensions.

We are finding the perimeter of a playground.

Perimeter of a playground = Sum of all outer sides.

We are adding all side we get following sides.

Perimeter of a playground = (10 + 15 + 5 + 15 + 15 + 30)

Perimeter of a playground = 90 m.

4.) As shown in the figure, four napkins all of the same size were made from a square piece of cloth of length 1 m. What length of lace will be required to trim all four sides of all the napkins?

ANS:

Given that,

Square piece of cloth of length 1 m.

From this we have to make napkins all of the same size.

We have to find length of lace will be required to trim all four sides of all the napkins.

When we cut square piece we get 4 napkins.

Each side of napkin = 1 m / 4 = 0.25 m

Perimeter of Each napkin = 4 x side

Perimeter of Each napkin = 4 x 0.25

Perimeter of Each napkin = 1 m

There are 4 napkins.

Perimeter of 4 napkins = 4m

We have to trim all four sides of a napkins from both sides by lace.

Length of lace will be required = 4 x 2 = 8m

### Practice Set 45

ANS:

Given that,

The area of a rectangle is 102 sqcm.

Also given that length of a rectangle is 17 cm.

We have to find perimeter of a rectangle.

We know,

Area of a rectangle = Length x Breadth

Also we know that,

Perimeter of rectangle = 2 x (Length + Breadth)

Perimeter of rectangle = 2 x (17 + 6)

Perimeter of rectangle = 2 x 23

Perimeter of rectangle = 46 cm.

4.) If the side of a square is tripled, how many times will its area be as compared to the area of the original square?

ANS:

We know,

Area of a square = Side x Side

Let,

Side of a square is x.

Then,

Area of a square = Side x Side

Area of a square 1 = x2

Now,

Given that

Side of a square is tripled.

Side of a square is 3x.

Then,

Area of a square = Side x Side

Area of a square 2 = 3x x 3x

Area of a square 2 = 9x2

Area of Original Square is 9 times of new square.

Area of rectangular Plot = 75.5 x 30.5

Area of rectangular Plot = 2302.75 m2

We have to find the value of a plot at the rate of 1000 rupees per square metre.

Value of a plot = Area of rectangular Plot x 1000

Value of a plot = 2302.75 m2 x 1000

Value of a rectangular plot =Rs. 23, 02,750

4.) A rectangular hall is 12 m long and 6 m broad. Its flooring is to be made of square tiles of side 30 cm. How many tiles will fit in the entire hall? How many would be required if tiles of side 15 cm were used?

Length of rectangular hall = 12 m.

Breadth of a rectangular hall = 6 m.

We know,

We know,

Area of rectangular hall= Length x Breadth

Area of rectangular hall = 12 x 6

Area of rectangular hall = 72 m2

Now,

In this rectangular hall flooring is to be made of square tiles of side 30 cm.

Given that

Side of square tile = 30 cm = 0.3 m

Area of a square tile = side x side

Area of a square tile = 0.3 x 0.3

Area of a square tile = 0.09 m2

We have to find total number of tiles in a hall.

We are dividing total area by area of square tile.

Total number of tiles in a hall = 72 / 0.09

Total number of tiles in a hall = 800

Now,

If side of square tile is 15 cm,

Then

Side of square tile = 15 cm = 0.15 m

Area of a square tile = side x side

Area of a square tile = 0.15 x 0.15

Area of a square tile = 0.0225 m2

We have to find total number of tiles in a hall.

We are dividing total area by area of square tile.

Total number of tiles in a hall = 72 / 0.0225

Total number of tiles in a hall = 3200

Square tiles of side 30 cm is 800 required and for 15 cm is 3200 square tiles are required.

5.) Find the perimeter and area of a garden with measures as shown in the figure alongside.

ANS:

We know,

There are total 12 outside boundaries of a figure.

Perimeter of a given garden = 12 x (side)

Perimeter of a given garden = 12 x 13

Perimeter of a given garden = 156 m

Now,

Area of garden =

There are 5 square shape inside garden.

We are finding area of 1 square and multiply it by 5.

Area of square = Side x Side

Area of square = 13 x 13

Area of square = 169 m2

Now,

Area of total garden = 5 x 169

Area of total garden = 845 m2

Perimeter and area of a garden is 156 m and 845 m2 respectively.

ANS:

Given that,

A matchbox is 4 cm long, 2.5 cm broad and 1.5 cm in height.

We know,

Match box is cuboid in shape.

Outer side of match box is covered with craft paper.

We have to find how much craft paper required.

I.e. we have to find total surface area of a cuboidal matchbox.

We know,

Total surface area of cuboid = 2 x (length × breadth + breadth × height + length × height)

Here,

Length = 4 cm

Height = 1.5 cm

Total surface area of cuboidal matchbox = 2 x (length × breadth + breadth × height + length × height)

ANS:

Given that,

An open box of length 1.5 m, breadth 1 m, and height 1 m is to be made for use on a trolley for carrying garden waste.

Box shape is cuboidal.

We have to find how much sheet metal required for this we have to find total surface area of cuboidal box.

We know,

Total surface area of cuboid = 2 x (length × breadth + breadth × height + length × height)

Here,

Length = 1.5 m

Height = 1 m

Total surface area of cuboidal box = 2 x (length × breadth + breadth × height + length × height)

Total surface area of cuboidal box = 2 x (1.5 x 1 + 1 x 1 + 1.5 x 1)

Total surface area of cuboidal box = 2 x (1.5 + 1 + 1.5)

Total surface area of cuboidal box = 2 x 4

Total surface area of cuboidal box = 8 m2

Total sheet metal required is 8 m2

Now,

We have to paint inside and outside of this box at rate of 150 rupees per sq.m

We have to find cost of paint.

Cost of paint = (Total surface area of cuboidal box x 2 ) x 150

Cost of paint = (8 x 2) x 150

Cost of paint = 16 x 150

Cost of paint = Rs.2400
