Perimeter and Area Exercise 10.1 Solution

Question no – (1)

Solution :

(a)  Length = 14.8 metre,

As we know that,

Perimeter of rectangle = 2 (length + breadth)

Now, Perimeter of the rectangle,

= (14.8 + 14.8 + 5.5 + 5.5) cm

= 40.6m

Thus, the perimeter of the rectangle is 40.6 metre.

(b) Length = 16 m 50 cm,

Breadth = 11 m 25 cm

First, 16 m 50 cm = 1650 cm,

= 11 m 25 cm = 1125 cm

As we know that,

Perimeter of rectangle = 2 (length + breadth)

Perimeter,

= 2 × (1650 + 1125)

= 5550 cm

Therefore, the perimeter of the rectangle is 5550 cm.

Question no – (2)

Solution :

(a) Square having length of each side as 5.6 m.

As we know that,

Perimeter of square = 4 × side

Now, the Perimeter,

= (5.6 × 4)

= 22.4 m

Thus, the perimeter of the square is 22.4 m.

(b) Square having length of each side as 24.5 cm.

As we know that,

Perimeter of square = 4 × side

Perimeter,

= (24.5 × 4) cm

= 98 cm

Thus, the perimeter of a square is 98 cm.

Question no – (3)

Solution :

As per the given question,

A man takes two rounds of a regular pentagon of side 125 m.

∴ The perimeter of the pentagon,

= 125 × 5

= 625 m

∴ Distance covered by the man,

= 625 × 2

= 1250 metre.

Hence, the distance covered by him is 1250 metre.

Question no – (4)

Solution :

(a) Triangle having sides 10 cm, 12 cm and 15 cm

As we know that,

Perimeter of triangle = Side + Side + Side (Sum of 3 sides)

∴ Perimeter of triangle

= (10 + 12 + 15)

= 37 cm

Thus, the the perimeter of the triangle is 37 cm.

(b) Triangle having each side as 14 cm.

As we know that,

Perimeter of triangle = Side + Side + Side (Sum of 3 sides)

Perimeter of triangle

= (14 × 3)

= 42 cm

Thus, the perimeter of triangle is 42 cm.

(c) Isosceles triangle having equal sides as 40 cm and third side as 20 cm.

As we know that,

Perimeter of triangle = Side + Side + Side (Sum of 3 sides)

Perimeter of triangle

= (40 + 40 + 20)

= 100 cm

Therefore, the perimeter of isosceles triangle is 100 cm.
