**Question 1. The perimeter of a square ABCD is twice the perimeter of ∆PQR. Find the area of the square ABCD.**

**Answer:**

Perimeter of ∆PQR = 6 cm + 5 cm + 7 cm = 18 cm

Perimeter of square = 2 × 18 = 36 cm

Side of square = ?

4 × side = 36

⇒ Side = 36/4 = 9

Area of square = (side)^{2} = (9)^{2 }= 9 × 9 = 81 cm^{2}

**Question 2. The perimeter of an equilateral triangle is 42 cm. Find the perimeter of a square, each side of which is double the side of the triangle.**

**Answer:**

Let the length of a side of the equilateral triangle and the square be l and L respectively.

Then, according to the given information, we have

Perimeter of equilateral triangle=42

⇒ l + l + l = 42

⇒ 3l = 42

⇒ l = 14.

So, the length of a side of the square will be

L = 2 × l = 2 × 14 = 28.

Therefore, the perimeter of the square is given by

Ps = 4L = 4 × 28 = 112

=4L = 4 × 28 = 112.

**Thus, the required perimeter of the square is 112 cm.**

**Question 3. A wire of length 60 cm is cut into two pieces. One piece is used to form a rectangle of length 10 cm and width 8 cm. the other piece is bent into the shape of a regular hexagon. What is the length of each side of hexagon ?**

**Answer:**

Length of wire = 60cm

After dividing it in to piece, one piece is used for making a rectangle.

Length of rectangle = 10cm, width = 8cm

Perimeter of rectangle = 2(L + B)

= 2(10+8)

= 2 x 18

= 36cm

Therefore, to make the rectangle, 36cm of wire is used of 60cm wire.

The remaining wire will be used to make a hexagon.

Therefore, Remaining wire = Total length – Used for rectangle

= 60 – 36

= 24

**Therefore, 24cm wire will be used to make the hexagon.**

To determine the side of hexagon,

Perimeter of hexagon = Remaining wire = 6 x side

24 = 6 x side

24 / 6 = side

4 = side

**Therefore, if the string is to be bent to make a hexagon, the side should be 4cm.**

**Question 4. A wire is in the shape of a square of side 10 cm. If the wire is rebent into a rectangle of length 12 cm, find its breadth. Which encloses more area, the square or the rectangle and by how much?**

**Answer:**

Side of square = 10 cm

Perimeter of square = 4 × 10 cm = 40 cm

According to question,

Perimeter of rectangular = 2(l + b)

⇒ 40 cm = 2 (12 cm + b)

⇒ 40 cm = 24 cm + 2b

⇒ 2b = 40 cm – 24 cm

⇒ 2b = 16 cm

⇒ b = 16/2 cm = 8 cm

Area of square = (a)^{2 }= (10 cm)^{2} = 100 cm^{2}

Area of rectangular = (l × b) = 12 × 8 = 96 cm^{2}

Area of square is more and it is = 100 cm^{2} – 96 cm^{2} = 4 cm^{2}

**Question 5. A rectangular room is 9 m long and 6 m wide. Find the cost of covering the floor with carpet 2 m wide at ₹35 per metre.**

**Answer:**

Length of room = 9m

Width of room = 6m

Area of room = l × b = 9 × 6 = 54 m^{2}

Width of carpet = 2m

Area of carpet = 54 m^{2}

Length = ?

Length of carpet = 54/2 = 27 m

Cost of covering = ₹35 × 27 m = ₹945

**Question 6. If the cost of fencing a square plot at the rate of ₹ 2.50 per metre is ₹ 200, then find the length of each side of the field.**

**Answer:**

Total cost of fencing a square plot = ₹200

Rate of fencing = ₹2.50

∴ Perimeter of square = Total cost/rate = 200/2.5 = 80m

Since, we know that,

Perimeter of square = 4a

⇒ 80 m = 4a

⇒ a = 20 m

∴ Length of a square plot = 20 m

**Question 7. If the cost of fencing a rectangular park at the rate of ₹7.50 per metre is ₹600 and the length of the park is 24 m, find the breadth of the park.**

**Answer:**

Cost of fencing a rectangular park = ₹600

Rate of fencing = ₹7.50

Perimeter of a park = Total cost/rate = 600/7.5 = 80m

Length of the park = 24 cm

Let breadth of the park = b

∴ Perimeter of a square = 80 m

⇒ 2(l + b) = 80 m

⇒ 2(24 + b) = 80 m

⇒ 24 + b = 80 m

⇒ b = 40 – 24 m

∴ b = 16 m

**Question 8. By splitting the following figures into rectangle, find their areas (The measures are given in centimetres).**

**Answer:**

(a) Area of the figure,

= (3 × 1 + 3 × 1 + 3 × 1) sq m

= (3 + 3 + 3) sq m

= 9 sq m

(b) Area of the figure,

= (3 × 3 + 1 × 2 + 3 × 3 + 4 × 2) sq cm

= (9 + 2 + 9 + 8) sq cm

= 28 sq cm
