15. The length of a rectangle is 5.8 cm and its breadth is 3.5 cm. What is the area of the rectangle?

ANSWERS:

1. a) ½ of 24 = ½ x 24 = 12

b) ½ of 46 = ½ x 46 = 23

2. a) 2/3 of 18 = 2/3 x 18 = 36/3 = 12

b) 2/3 of 27 = 2/3 x 27 = 54/3 = 18

3. -4/5 = -4/5 x 3/3 = -12/15

-2/3 = -2/3 x 5/5 = -10/15

-10/15 x 2/2 = -20/30.

Three rational numbers between -4/5 and -2/3 are -23/30, -22/30, and -21/30.

4. 9/2 x -5/3 = -45/6 = -15/2.

Distance walked on Wednesday = 10 – 8.82 = 1.18 km

15. l = 5.8 cm

B = 3.5 cm

Area = l x b = 5.8 x 3.5 = 20.3 square cm.
