Perimeter of a Kite Formula

A kite has two pairs of equal size. Total distance around the outside is called the perimeter of a kite. This distance can be found by finding out the sum of the length of each pair. 


The perimeter formula of a kite is,

\[\large Perimeter=2a+2b\]

a = The length of First pair
b = The length of second pair

Solved Examples

Question 1: Find the perimeter of the kite whose sides are 18 cm and 26 cm


a = 18 cm
b = 26 cm

Perimeter of the kite = 2(a + b)
Perimeter of the kite= 2(18 + 26)
Perimeter of the kite= 88 cm

Which of the following is true about multiplication of a vector by a scalar.

1) Scalar multiplication by a positive number other than 1 changes its magnitude but not direction.

2) Scalar multiplication always lead to change in magnitude and direction.

3) Scalar multiplication by -1 will not change the magnitude of the vector but will change its direction.

4) Scalar multiplication by a negative number other than -1 will reverse its direction and change its magnitude as well.
