A wire is in the shape of a rectangle. Its length is and breadth is If the same wire is rebent in the shape of a square, what will be the measure of each side? Also, find which shape encloses more area?
The length of the rectangle
The breadth of the square
Step 1: find the side of the square.
The perimeter of the square is the same as the perimeter of a rectangle
The perimeter of the rectangle = Perimeter of the Square
Step 2: Find the area of the given figures.
The area of the rectangle is given by
Area of square
Therefore, a square-shaped wire encloses more area.
Hence, the measure of each side of the square is and square-shaped wired encloses more area than rectangle-shaped wired.
