**3. Find the perimeter of each of the following closed figures:**

**Solution:**

The perimeter of the closed figures can be calculated as follows

Perimeter = Sum of all the sides

Perimeter = AB + AC + CD + DG + GH + FH + EF + BE

= 15 + 5 + 10 + 25 + 15 + 5 + 10 + 25

= 110 cm

Therefore, the perimeter of the closed figure = 110 cm

(ii) The perimeter of the closed figures can be calculated as follows

Perimeter = Sum of all the sides

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

= 20 + 4 + 8 + 20 + 4 + 8 + 20 + 4

= 88 cm

Therefore, the perimeter of the closed figure = 88 cm

**(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**

**Solution:**

(i) Given

Length of the rectangle = 40 cm

Breadth of the rectangle = 35 cm

Hence, the perimeter of the rectangle is calculated as follows

Perimeter = 2 (Length + Breadth)

Perimeter = 2 (40 cm + 35 cm)

= 2 × 75 cm

= 150 cm

= 150 / 100 m

We get,

= 1.5 m

Hence, the perimeter of the rectangle = 1.5 m

(ii) Given

Length of the rectangle = 10 m

Breadth of the rectangle = 8 m

Hence, the perimeter of the rectangle is calculated as follows:

Perimeter = 2 (Length + Breadth)

Perimeter = 2 (10 m + 8 m)

= 2 × 18 m

We get,

= 36 m

Hence, the perimeter of the rectangle = 36 m

(iii) Given

Length of the rectangle = 8 m

Breadth of the rectangle = 80 cm

We know that,

100 cm = 1 metre

Hence, the breadth can be converted into metre from centimetre as below

Breadth = 80 cm

= 80 / 100 m

We get,

= 0.8 m

Hence, the perimeter of the rectangle is calculated as follows:

Perimeter = 2 (Length + Breadth)

Perimeter = 2 (8 m + 0.8 m)

= 2 × 8.8 m

We get,

= 17.6 m

Hence, the perimeter of the rectangle = 17.6 m

(iv) Given

Length of the rectangle = 3.6 m

Breadth of the rectangle = 2.4 m

Hence, the perimeter of the rectangle is calculated as follows:

Perimeter = 2 (Length + Breadth)

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

**Solution:**

(i) Given

P = 38 cm and b = 7 cm

Length of the rectangle (l) can be calculated as below

Length (l) = P / 2 – b

= 38 / 2 – 7 cm

We get,

= 19 cm – 7 cm

= 12 cm

Hence, the length of the rectangle = 12 cm

(ii) Given

P = 3.2 m and l = 100 cm

The breadth of the rectangle (b) can be calculated as follows

Here, the length is in centimetre. Hence, it can be converted into metre from centimetre as below

Length = 100 cm

= 100 / 100 m

Breadth (b) = P / 2 – 1

= 3.2 / 2 – 1 m

= 1.6 m – 1 m

We get,

= 0.6 m

Hence, the breadth (b) of the rectangle = 0.6 m

(iii) Given

L = 2 m and b = 75 cm

The perimeter of the rectangle can be calculated as below:

We know that,

100 cm = 1 m

Here, the breadth is in centimetre. Hence, it can be converted into metre from centimetre as below

Breadth = 75 cm

= 75 / 100 m

We get,

= 0.75 m

Perimeter = 2 (Length + Breadth)

Perimeter = 2 (2 m + 0.75 m)

= 2 × 2.75 m

We get,

= 5.5 m

Hence, the perimeter of the rectangle = 5.5 m

**6. Find the perimeter of a square whose each side is 1.6 m.**

**Solution:**

= 6.4 m

Hence, the perimeter of a square = 6.4 m

**7. Find the side of the square whose perimeter is 5 m.**

**Solution:**

Given

The perimeter of the square = 5 m

Hence, the side of the square can be calculated as below

side = Perimeter / 4

= (5 / 4) m

We get,

= 1.25 m

Hence, the side of the square = 1.25 m

**8. A square field has each side 70 m whereas a rectangular field has length = 50 m and breadth = 40 m. Which of the two fields has greater perimeter and by how much?**

**Solution:**

Given

The side of square field = 70 m

Length of a rectangular field = 50 m

Breadth of a rectangular field = 40 m

So,

The Perimeter of the square field = 4 × side

= 4 × 70 m

We get,

= 280 m

The Perimeter of the rectangular field = 2 (length + breadth)

= 2 (50 m + 40 m)

= 2 × 90 m

We get,

= 180 m

Therefore, the perimeter of the square field is greater than the perimeter of rectangular field by 280 m – 180 m = 100 m

**(iii) the cost of fencing the field at the rate of 80 per metre**

**Solution:**

(i) Given

Length of the rectangular field = 160 m

Breadth of the rectangular field = 120 m

Hence, the perimeter of the rectangular field can be calculated as below:

Perimeter = 2 (Length + Breadth)

Perimeter = = 2 (160 m + 120 m)

= 2 × 280 m

We get,

= 560 m

Therefore, the perimeter of the field = 560 m

(ii) The length of fence required to enclose the field is equal to the perimeter of the rectangular field. Therefore, the length of the fence is 560 m

(iii) Given

The cost of fencing the field per metre = Rs 80

Hence, total cost of fencing the field can be calculated as follows:

Total Cost = Length of fence × Rate of fence

= 560 m × Rs 80 per metre

We get,

= Rs 44, 800

Therefore, total cost of fencing the field = Rs 44,800

**10. Each side of a square plot of land is 55 m. Find the cost of fencing the plot at the rate of Rs 32 per metre.**

**Solution:**

Given

Each side of a square field = 55 m

Hence, the perimeter of square field can be calculated as follows:

Perimeter = 4 × side

= 4 × 55 m

We get,

= 220 m

We know that, the length of fence required to enclose the field is the perimeter of the square field.

Therefore, the length of fence = 220 m

Given

Cost of fence per metre = Rs 32

Hence, total cost of fencing the field can be calculated as follows:

Total cost of fencing the field = Length of fence × Rate of fence

= 220 m × 32

We get,

= Rs 7040

Therefore, total cost of fencing the field = Rs 7040

**11. Each side of a square field is 70 cm. How much distance will a boy walk in order to make?**

**(i) one complete round of this field?**

**(ii) 8 complete rounds of this field?**

**Solution:**

(i) Given

Hence, the perimeter of square field can be calculated as below

Perimeter = 4 × side

= 4 × 70 m

We get,

= 280 m

Therefore, the distance covered by the boy to complete one round of the field is 280 m

(ii) The distance covered to complete 8 rounds of the field can be calculated as follows:

Distance = 8 × Perimeter

= 8 **× **280

We get,

= 2240 m

Therefore, the distance covered by the boy to complete 8 rounds of the field is 2240 m

**12. 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?**

**Solution:**

Given

Length of rectangular playground = 120 m

Breadth of rectangular playground = 90 m

Hence, the perimeter of rectangular playground can be calculated as follows:

Perimeter = 2 (Length + Breadth)

Perimeter = 2 (120 m + 90 m)

= 2 × 210 m

We get,

= 420 m

Hence, distance covered by the boy in one round = 420 m

Therefore, total distance covered by the boy to complete 15 rounds can be calculated as follows:

Distance = 15 × Perimeter

= 15 × 420

We get,

= 6300 m

Therefore, distance covered by the boys to completer 15 rounds is 6300 m

**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?**

**Solution:**

Given

Length of the rectangular field = 120 m

Breadth of the rectangular field = 75 m

Side of square field = 100 m

Distance covered by Mohit in one round is equal to the perimeter of the rectangular field

Hence, the perimeter of the rectangular field can be calculated as follows**:**

Perimeter = 2 (Length + Breadth)

= 2 × 195 m

We get,

= 390 m

Now, the total distance covered by the Mohit to complete the 8 rounds can be calculated as follows:

Distance = 8 × Perimeter

= 8 × 390

We get,

= 3120 m

Distance covered by John in one round is equal to the perimeter of the square field

Hence, the perimeter of square field can be calculated as follows:

Perimeter = 4 × side

= 4 × 100 m

We get,

= 400 m

Therefore the total distance covered by John to complete 10 rounds can be calculated as follows:

Distance = 10 × Perimeter

= 10 × 400 m

We get,

= 4000 m

Difference between the distance covered by Mohit and John is,

= 4000 m – 3120 m

We get,

= 880 m

Therefore, John covers larger distance by 880 m than the distance covered by Mohit.

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

**Solution:**

Given

The perimeter of the rectangle = 60 cm

Length of rectangle is twice of its breadth

Let us consider the breadth of the field = x

Hence, length of the field = 2x

Perimeter = 2 (Length + Breadth)

Perimeter = 2 (2x + x)

60 = 2 × 3x

60 = 6x

x = 60 / 6

We get,

x = 10 cm

So, the breadth of the rectangle = 10 cm

Then the length of the rectangle = 2x

= 2 × 10

= 20 cm

Therefore, the length of the rectangle is 20 cm

= 3 × 9.8 cm

We get,

= 29.4 cm

Therefore, the perimeter of the equilateral triangle = 29.4 cm

(ii) Given

Each side of isosceles triangle = 13 cm

Third side of isosceles triangle = 10 cm

Hence, the perimeter of isosceles triangle can be calculated as follows**:**

Perimeter = Sum of all sides

= 13 + 13 + 10

We get,

= 36 cm

Therefore, the perimeter of isosceles triangle = 36 cm

(iii) Given

The side of regular pentagon = 8.2 cm

Hence, the perimeter of the regular pentagon can be calculated as follows:

Perimeter = 5 **× **side

= 5 × 8.2 cm

The breadth of rectangle = 20 m

The area of the rectangle can be calculated as follows:

Area = length × breadth

= 30 m × 20 m

= 600 m^{2}

Also, given that the length is increased by 10 m and its breadth is doubled

Hence, the new length and breadth is as follows:

New length = 30 m + 10 m

= 40 m

New breadth = 20 m × 2

= 40 m

Therefore, the new area of the rectangle is,

Area = 40 m × 40 m

= 1600 m^{2}

Increase in area = 1600 m^{2} – 600 m^{2}

Increase in area = 1000 m^{2}

Therefore, the increase in area = 1000 m^{2}

**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**

**Solution:**

Given

Side of the square field = 16 m

Hence, area of square field can be calculated as follows:

Area = (side)^{2}

= (16 m)^{2}

= 16 m × 16 m

We get,

= 256 m^{2}

(i) Since the side is increased by 4 m, then the length of new side will be

= 16 + 4

= 20 m

Hence, the new area of square can be calculated as follows:

Area = (side)^{2}

Area = (20 m)^{2}

= 20 m × 20 m

We get,

= 400 m^{2}

Increase in the area of the square field will be = 400 m^{2} – 256 m^{2}

= 144 m^{2}

Hence, the increase in the area of the square field = 144 m^{2}

(ii) Given

Each side of its length is doubled

Hence, the new side will be = 16 m × 2

= 32 m

The area of square can be calculated as follows:

Area = (side)^{2}

Area = (32)^{2}

= 32 m × 32 m

We get,

= 1024 m^{2}

Thus, the increase in area of the square field will be = 1024 m^{2} – 256 m^{2}

= 768 m^{2}

Therefore, the increase in the area of the square field = 768 m^{2}

**13. Each rectangular tile is 40 cm long and 30 cm wide. How many tiles will be required to cover the floor of a room with length = 4.8 m and breadth = 2.4 m**

**Solution:**

Given

Length of the rectangular tile = 40 cm

Breadth of the rectangular tile = 30 cm

Length of the floor = 4.8 m

Breadth of the floor = 2.4 m

We know that,

100 cm = 1 m

Hence,

Length = 40 cm

= 40 / 100 m

We get,

= 0.4 m

Breadth = 30 cm

= 30 / 100 cm

We get,

= 0.3 m

The area of rectangular tile is calculated as,

Area = Length × Breadth

Area = 0.4 m × 0.3 m

We get,

= 0.12 m^{2}

The area of the floor is calculated as,

Area = Length × Breadth

Area = 4.8 m × 2.4 m

We get,

= 11.52 m^{2}

Total number of tiles required = (Area of the floor) / (Area of each tile)

= 11.52 m^{2} / 0.12 m^{2}

We get,

= 96

Therefore, total number of tiles required to cover the floor = 96

**14. Each side of a square tile is 60 cm. How many tiles will be required to cover the floor of a hall with length = 50 m and breadth = 36 m.**

**Solution:**

Given

The length of the each side of square = 60 cm

Length of the floor = 50 m

Breadth of the floor = 36 m

We know that,

100 cm = 1 m

side = 60 cm

= 60 / 100 m

We get,

= 0.6 m

Hence, the area of the square tile is calculated as follows:

Area = (side)^{2}

= (0.6 m)^{2}

= 0.6 m × 0.6 m

We get,

= 0.36 m^{2}

The area of the floor is calculated as follows:

Area = Length × Breadth

Area = 50 m × 36 m

We get,

= 1800 m^{2}

Hence, number of tiles required = (Area of the floor) / (Area of each tile)

= 1800 m^{2} / 0.36 m^{2}

We get,

= 5000

Therefore, the number of tiles required to cover the floor = 5000

**15. The perimeter of a square plot = 360 m. Find:**

**(i) its area**

**(ii) cost of fencing its boundary at the rate of Rs 40 per metre**

**(iii) cost of levelling the plot at Rs 60 per square metre**

**Solution:**

Given

The perimeter of square plot = 360 m

Hence,

Side of square plot = Perimeter / 4

= 360 m / 4

We get,

= 90 m

Therefore, the side of square plot = 90 m

(i) Area of square plot can be calculated as follows:

Area = (side)^{2}

= (90 m)^{2}

= 90 m × 90 m

We get,

= 8100 m^{2}

Therefore, the area of the square plot = 8100 m^{2}

(ii) Given

Cost of fencing = Rs 40 per meter

Cost of fencing can be calculated as follows:

Cost = Perimeter × Rate

= 360 m × 40

We get,

= Rs 14400

Therefore, cost of fencing = Rs 14400

(iii) Given

The cost of leveling = Rs 60 per square meter

Cost of leveling can be calculated as follows:

Cost = Area × Rate

= 8100 m^{2} × 60

We get,

= Rs 486000

Therefore, the cost of leveling the plot = Rs 486000
