**Question- 3.**

**Answer-3**

**(i) Required perimeter**

= AB + AC + BE + EF + FH + HG + HD

= 15 + 5 + 25 + 10 + 5 + 15 + 25 = 110 cm

**(ii) Required perimeter**

= AB + AC + CD + DG + BF + EF + EH + GH

= 20 + 4 + 8 + 20 + 4 + 8 + 20 + 4 = 88 cm

**Question -4.**

(i) length = 40 cm and breadth = 35 cm

(ii) length = 10 m and breadth = 8 m

(iii) length = 8 m and breadth = 80 cm

(iv) length = 3.6 m and breadth = 2.4 m

**Answer-4**

**(i)** length = 40 cm and breadth = 35 cm

∴Perimeter = 2 (length + breadth)

= 2 (40 cm + 35 cm)

= 2 x 75 cm

= 150 cm = ^{150}⁄_{100}

= 1.5 m

**(ii)** length = 10 m and breadth = 8 m

∴Perimeter = 2 (length + breadth)

= 2 (10 m + 8 m)

= 2 x 18 m = 54 m

**(iii)** length = 8 m and

breadth = 80 cm

Length = 8 m

Breadth = 80 cm= ^{80}⁄_{100} m = 0.8 m

∴ Perimeter = 2 (length + breadth)

= 2 (8 m + 0.8m)

= 2 x 8.8 m = 17.6 m

**(iv)** length = 3.6 m and breadth = 2.4 m

∴ Perimeter = 2 (length + breadth)

= 2 (3.6 m + 2.4 m)

= 2 x 6 m = 12 m

**Question -5.**

(i) l, if P = 38cm and b = 7cm

(ii) b, if P = 3.2m and l = 100 cm

(iii) P, if l = 2 m and b = 75cm

**Answer-5**

(i)

l, if P = 38cm and b = 7cm

Length, (l) = P⁄_{2 }-b

=^{38}⁄_{2 }-7 cm

= 19 cm – 7 cm

= 10 cm

(ii) b, if P = 3.2m and l = 100 cm

b, if P = 3.2m and l = 100 cm

[∴100 cm=100⁄_{100 }m= 1m]

Breadth, (b) = P⁄_{2}-l

=3.2⁄_{2}m -1m

= 1.6 m – 1 m = 0.6

(iii) P, if l = 2 m and b = 75cm

[∴100 cm= 75⁄_{100 }m= 0.75 m]

P, if l = 2 m and b = 75cm

∴ Perimeter = 2(l + b)

= 2 (2 + 0.75)

= 2 (2.75)

= 5.5 m

**Question -6.**

Perimeter of rectangular field = 2 (length + breadth)

= 2 (50 m + 40 m)

= 2 x 90 m

= 180 m

∴Square field has greater perimeter by 280 m – 180 m

= 100 m

**Question- 9.**

A rectangular field has length = 160m and breadth = 120 m. Find :

(i) the perimeter of the field.

A school playground is rectangular in shape with length = 120 m and breadth = 90 m. Some school boys run along the boundary of the play-ground and make 15 complete rounds in 45 minutes. How much distance they run during this period.

**Answer-12**

Length of the rectangular playground = 120 mBreadth of the rectangular playground = 90 m

∴ Perimeter of the rectangular ground = 2(l + b)

= 2(120 + 90) m = 420 m

Thus, in one complete round, boys covers a distance of = 420 m

∴ Distance covered in 15 complete rounds = 420 m x 15 = 6300 m

**Question-** 13.

Mohit makes 8 full rounds of a rectangular field with length = 120 m and breadth = 75 m.

John makes 10 full rounds of a square field with each side 100 in. Find who covers larger distance and by how much?

**Answer-13**

**Mohit**

Length of the rectangular field = 120

Breadth of the rectangular field = 75 m

∴ Distance covered in one round (perimeter)

= 2(1 + b) = 2(120 + 75) = 390 m

Hence, distance covered in 8 rounds = 390 x 8 m = 3120 m

**John**

Side of the field = 100 m

∴Distance covered in one round = 4 x a = 4 x 100 = 400 m

Hence, Distance covered in 10 rounds = 400 x 10 m = 400 m

John a covers greater distance then Mohit by = (4000-3120) m = 880 m

**Question -14.**

The length of a rectangle is twice of its breadth. If its perimeter is 60 cm, find its length.

**Answer-14**

Let the breadth of the field = x cm

∴ its length = 2x

and, its perimeter = 2 x (length + breadth)

= 2 x (2x + x)

= 2(3x)

= 6x cm

Perimeter = 60 cm

⇒ 60 cm = 6x cm

⇒ x =^{60}⁄_{6} = 10 cm

∴ Breadth = x = 10 cm

Length = 2x = 2 x 10 = 20 cm

**Question -10.**

What will happen to the area of a rectangle, if its length and breadth both are trebled?

**Answer-10**:

Let the original length of the rectangle = l and its original breadth = b

∴ its original area = length x breadth i.e A = l – b i. e.

Since,

Increased length -=3l

and, increased breadth = 3b

∴ New area = 3l x 3b = 9 x l x b [∵A = l x b]

⇒ Area of the new rectangle = 9 times than area of original rectangle

**Question -11.**

Length of a rectangle is 30 m and its breadth is 20 m. Find the increase in its area if its length is increased by 10 m and its breadth is doubled.

**Answer-11**:

Length of a rectangle (l) = 30 m,

Breadth of the rectangle (b) = 20 m

Area of rectangle = l x b

= 30 x 20 = 600 m^{2}

Since, the length its increased by 10 m and breadth is doubled

∴New length (l) = (30 + 10) m = 40 m

and new breadth = (20 x 2) m = 40 m

∴New area = l x b = 40 x 40 m^{2} = 1600 m^{2}

Hence, the increase in the area = (1600 – 600) m^{2}

= 1000 m^{2}

#### Question -12.

The side of a square field is 16 m. What will be increase in its area, if:

(i) each of its sides is increased by 4 m

(ii) each of its sides is doubled.

**Answer-12**:

**(i) each of its sides is increased by 4 m**

Side of a square field (a) = 16 m

∴ Area of a square field = (a)^{2}

= 16 × 16 m^{2} = 256 m^{2}

Each of its sides is increased by 4 m

∴ New side = (16 + 4)m = 20 m

∴ New area of the square field = (a)^{2}

= 20 × 20 m^{2} = 400 m^{2}

**(ii) each of its sides is doubled.**

Side of a square field (a) = 16 m

∴ Area of a square field = (a)^{2}

= 16 × 16 m^{2} = 256 m^{2}

Each of its side is doubled

∴ New side = (16 × 2)m = 32 m

∴ New area of the square field.. = (a)^{2}

= 32 × 32 m^{2} = 1024 m^{2}

**Answer-16**:

**(i)** Perimeter of a rectangle = 2 x (length + breadth)

⇒ 500 m = 2 x (150 m + breadth)

⇒ 250 m – 150 m = breadth

∴ breadth = 100 m

**(ii) **Area of rectangular field = length x breadth

= 150 m x 100 m

= 15000 m²

**(iii)** Cost of ploughing the field at the rate of

= ₹ 1.20 per square m²= area of the field x rate of ploughing

⇒ length × 5 m = 32 m^{2}

⇒ length = 32m25 m = 6.4 m

(ii) Perimeter = 2 × (length + breadth)

= 2 × (6.4 m + 5 m)

= 2 × 11.4 m

= 22.8 m

(iii) Cost of fixing a border at the rate of ₹ 60 per m^{2} = area of hall × rate of fixing

= 32 m^{2} × ₹ 60 per m^{2}

= ₹ 1920

**Question- 18.**

The length of a rectangle is three times its breadth. If the area of the rectangle is 1875 sq. cm, find its perimeter.

**Answer-18**

Let the breadth of a rectangle = x

and the length of a rectangle = 3x

∴ Area of the rectangle = l × b

⇒ 1875 cm^{2} = x × 3x

⇒ 3x^{2} = 1875

⇒ x^{2} = ^{1845}⁄_{3}

⇒ x = √625

⇒ x = 25 cm

∴ Breadth of a rectangle = 25 cm

and length of a rectangle = 3 × 25 cm = 75 cm

Now, perimeter of a rectangle = 2 (l + b)

= 2 (75 + 25) cm

= 2 × 100 cm = 200 cm
