1.

Which of the given equations will give the area(A) of the rectangle, if the length = 12 cm and width = 5 cm?

a. | A = 12 + 5 | ||

b. | A = 12 × 6 | ||

c. | A = 12 × 5 | ||

d. | A = 12 ÷ 5 |

[Formula for area(A) of a rectangle with length(L) and width(W).]

A = 12 × 5

[Substitute the values.]

So, the equation 'A = 12 × 5' gives the area of a rectangle.

Correct answer : (3)

2.

Which of the given equations represents the area (A) of the rectangle?

a. | A = 2(3 + 5) | ||

b. | A - 3 = 5 | ||

c. | A = 3 × 5 | ||

d. | A = 3 × 4 |

[Area of the rectangle with length(L) and width(W).]

From the figure, length(L) = 5 and width(W) = 3.

So, A = 3 × 5 gives the area of the rectangle.

Correct answer : (3)

3.

The side length of a square is 16 cm. Which of the given equations is used to find the perimeter(P)?

a. | P = 4 × 3 cm | ||

b. | P = (16 - 4) cm | ||

c. | P = 16 ^{2} cm | ||

d. | P = 4 × 16 cm |

Side of a square is 16 cm.

So, Perimeter(P) = 4 × 16 cm.

Correct answer : (4)

4.

The side of a square is 8 inches. Which equation gives the area(A) of the square?

a. | A = 8 + 8 | ||

b. | A = 4 × 8 | ||

c. | A = 8 × 8 | ||

d. | A = 2 × 8 |

So, 'A = 8 × 8' gives the area of the square.

[Substitute

Correct answer : (3)

5.

The area(A) of a rectangle is 12 square inches and length of the rectangle is 3 inches. What is the width(W) of the rectangle?

a. | W = 12 ÷ 3 | ||

b. | W = 12 × 3 | ||

c. | W = 12 + 5 | ||

d. | W = 3 × A |

[Area of a rectangle with length(L) and width(W).]

12 = 3 × W

[Substitute the values.]

So, width of the rectangle is given by 'W = 12 ÷ 3'.

Correct answer : (1)

6.

Identify the that represents the area (A) of the rectangle ABCD.

a. | A = 6 × 3 | ||

b. | 3 = A + 6 | ||

c. | A = 2(6) + 2(3) | ||

d. | A - 2 = 6 + 3 |

Correct answer : (1)

7.

The side of a square is 8 inches. Which equation gives the perimeter (P) of the square?

a. | A = 4(8) | ||

b. | A = 8 + 8 | ||

c. | A = (8)(8) | ||

d. | A = 2(8) |

Correct answer : (1)

8.

If length of a rectangle is 2 inches and its width is 3 inches, then what does the equation 2 × 3 = 6 represent?

a. | width | ||

b. | length | ||

c. | area | ||

d. | perimeter |

Correct answer : (3)

9.

Which of the given equations represents the area (A) of the square?

a. | A = 2(3) | ||

b. | A = 4(3) | ||

c. | A = 3 × 3 | ||

d. | A = 3 + 3 + 3 |

Correct answer : (3)

10.

The length of a rectangle is 7 inches and its width is 5 inches. Then, what is the perimeter (P) of the rectangle?

a. | P = 5 × 7 | ||

b. | P = 2(7 + 5) | ||

c. | 7 + 5 = P | ||

d. | 7 = 5 × P |

Correct answer : (2)
