9. A floor is 6m long and 4m wide. A square carpet of sides 4m is laid on the floor. Find the area of the floor that is not carpeted.

10. The area of a rectangular garden 30 m long is 300 sq m. Find the width of the garden?

**ANSWERS:**

1. Given length = 250 cm and breadth = 2m = 200 cm

Perimeter of the rectangle = 2 x (l+ b) = 2 x (250 + 200) = 2 x 450 = 900 cm

2. Given l = 150m and b = 175m

Perimeter = 2 x (l+ b) = 2 x(150 + 175) = 2 x 325 = 650 m

Cost of fencing = 650 x 8 = 5200 rupees.

3. Perimeter of a regular pentagon = 5 x side = 5 x 5 = 25 cm

4. Given perimeter of a regular hexagon = 24 cm

A hexagon has 6 sides.

Length of one side = 24/6 = 4 cm

5. Perimeter of a triangle = 10 + 12 + 14 = 36 cm

6. Perimeter of a square = 40 m

Length of one side = 40 / 4 = 10m

7. Two sides are 14 cm and 16 cm.

Given perimeter = 36 cm

Third side = 36 – (14 + 16) = 36 – 30 = 6cm

8. a) Area of a rectangle = l x b = 2 x 4 = 8 sq cm

b) Area = l x b = 4 x 15 = 60 sq km

9. Given l = 6m and b = 4m

Area of the floor = l x b = 6 x 4 = 24 sq m

Area of the carpet = side x side = 4 x 4 = 16 sq m

Area of the floor that is not carpeted = 24 – 16 = 8 sq m

10. Given area = 300 sq m

Length = 30 m

Width = Area / length = 300 / 30 = 10 m
