**Choose the correct answer from, the given four options (3 to 15):**

**Question 3. If the perimeter of a square is 50 cm, then its side is**

(a) 200 cm

(b) 150 cm

(c) 25 cm

(d) 12.5 cm

**Answer:**

Perimeter of a square = 50 cm

⇒ 4 × length of a side = 50 cm

⇒ length of a side = cm = 12.5 cm (d)

**Question 4. The area of the rectangle with length 25 cm and breadth 12 cm is**

(a) 300 sq. m

(b) 74 cm

(c) 300 sq. cm

(d) 74 sq. cm

**Answer:**

Length = 25 cm

Breadth = 12 cm

Area = Length × Breadth

= 25 cm × 12 cm

= 300 sq. cm (c)

**Question 5. If the perimeter of a square is 36 cm, then its area is**

(a) 6 sq. cm

(b) 9 sq. cm

(c) 18 sq. cm

(d) 81 sq. cm

**Answer:**

Perimeter of a square = 36 cm

⇒ 4 × length of a side = 36

⇒ length of a side = 36/4 = 9 cm

Area of a square = (Length of a side)^{2 }= (9 cm)^{2} = 81 cm^{2} (d)

**Question 6. If the area of rectangular plot is 180 sq. m and its length is 15 m, then its breadth is**

(a) 12 m

(b) 12 cm

(c) 60 m

(d) 9 m

**Answer:**

Length = 15 m

Breadth = x

Area of a rectangle = 180 sq. m

Length × Breadth = 180 sq. m

Breadth = 180/15 = 12 m (a)

**Question 7. If the length and the breadth of a rectangle are doubled, then its perimeter**

(a) remains the same

(b) doubles

(c) becomes four times

(d) becomes half

**Answer:**

Let the length of rectangle = l

Let the breadth of rectangle = b

Perimeter = 2(l + b)

If length and breadth are doubles then

Length = 2l

Breadth = 2b

Perimeter = 2(2l + 2b) = 2 × 2(l +b)

Hence perimeter becomes doubles. (b)

**Question 8. If the length and the breadth of a rectangular are doubled then its area**

(a) remains same

(b) becomes half

(c) doubles

(d) becomes four times.

**Answer:**

If length = x

and breadth = y

Then area of rectangle = x × y = xy

And If length and breadth are doubled

i. e. length = 2x and breadth = 2y

Then area of rectangle becomes = 2x × 2y = 4 xy

Hence, It shows that the area of rectangle becomes four times. (d)

**Question 9. If the sides of a square are halved, then its area**

(a) remains same

(b) becomes half

(c) becomes one-fourth

(d) doubles

**Answer:**

Let us assume side of a square = x cm

∴ Area = (x)^{2} = x^{2} cm^{2}

and if we half the side

∴ New side of a square = x/2 cm

∴ Area = x^{2}/4 cm^{2}

Hence, It shows if side of square are halved,

then its area become one-fourth. (c)

**Question 10. In the given figure, a square of side 1 cm is joined to a square of side 3 cm. The perimeter of the new figure is**

(a) 13 cm

(b) 14 cm

(c) 15 cm

(d) 16 cm

**Answer:**

The given figure is

Perimeter = AB + BC + CD + DE + EF + FG + GA

As we know all the sides of square are equal

∴ AB = BC = CD = DA = 3 cm

Also, ED = DG = GF = FE = 1 cm

But in perimeter we need AG

AG = AD – GD = 3 cm – 1 cm = 2 cm

Hence perimeter = (3 + 3 + 3 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 2) cm = 14 cm (b)

**Question 11. Two regular hexagons of perimeter 30 cm each are joined as shown in the given figure. The perimeter of the new figure is**

(a) 65 cm

(b) 60 cm

(c) 55 cm

(d) 50 cm

**Answer:**

As per given figure,

Perimeter = 30 cm

∴ Side = 30/6 = 5 cm

Hence, remaining perimeter

= AB + BC + CD + DE + EF + FG + GH + HI + IJ + JA

= (5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5) cm

= 50 cm (d)

**Question 12. If the area of a square is numerically equal to its perimeter, then the length of each side is**

(a) 1 unit

(b) 2 units

(c) 3 units

(d) 4 units

**Answer:**

Let the side of the square be s

∴ Area = (side)^{2} = s^{2}

And perimeter = 4 × length of the side = 4 s

But, we have, area = perimeter

∴ s^{2} = 4s ⇒ s = 4

∴ The length of each side is 4 units (d)

**Question 13. Four square tables with side 1.3 m are placed end to end to form one big rectangle table. The perimeter of the rectangular table is **

(a) 5.2 m

(b) 10.4 m

(c) 13 m

(d) 20.8 m

**Answer: **

(c) 13 m

**Question 14. The area of a rectangle is 180 cm. If its length is 15 cm, them the ratio of its breadth to its length is **

(a) 1 : 12

(b) 12 : 1

(c) 5 : 4

(d) 4 : 5

**Answer:**

(d) 4 : 5

**Question 15. A picture is 60 cm wide and 1.8 m long. The ratio of its width to its perimeter in lowest form is**

(a) 1 : 2

(b) 1 : 3

(c) 1:6

(d) 1 : 8

**Answer:**

Width of picture = 60 cm

Length = 1.8 m = 180 cm

Perimeter = 2(l + b) = 2(60 + 180) = 2(240) = 480 cm

Ratio = 60/480 = 1/8

= 1 : 8 (d)

**Higher Order Thinking Skills **

**Question 1. How many envelopes of size 25 cm x 15 cm can be made from a rectangular sheet of size 4 m x 1.2 m?**

**Answer:**

Size of envelope = 25 cm × 15 cm

Area of envelope = 25 × 15 cm^{2} = 375 cm^{2}

Size of rectangular sheet = 4 m × 1.2 m

Area of rectangular sheet = 400 cm × 120 cm = 48000 cm^{2}

No. of envelope = area of rectangle/Area of envelope

= 48000/375

= 128 envelope

**Question 2. The perimeter of a rectangle is 36 cm. What will be length and breadth (in natural number) of that rectangle whose area is**

(i) maximum?

(ii) minimum?

**Answer:**

(i) When area is maximum Then, l = 9 cm, b = 9 cm

(ii) When area is minimum Then, l = 17 cm b = 1 cm
