The perimeter of Paul's room = 2(24 + 27)
[Substitute the values.]
Step: 5
= 2(51)
Step: 6
= 102
[Multiply.]

Step: 1
The perimeter of a square is the sum of all the sides of the square.
Step: 2
All the sides of a square are equal.
Step: 3
The side of the square is 5 units.
Step: 4
The perimeter of the square = 5 + 5 + 5 + 5
Step: 5
= 20
Step: 6
The perimeter of the square is 20 units.
Correct Answer is :   20 units
Q5Laura wants to lay a rectangular flower garden 17 feet long and 11 feet wide. What would be its perimeter?

Step: 2
Perimeter of a rectangular flower garden = 2(17 + 11)
[Substitute the values.]
Step: 3
= 2 × 28 = 56
Step: 4
The perimeter of a rectangular flower garden is 56 feet.
Correct Answer is :   56 feet
Q6Find the perimeter of a table cloth that is 62 inches long and 43 inches wide.
A. 110 inches
B. 19 inches
C. 210 inches
D. 105 inches

Step: 1

= 62 + 43 + 62 + 43 = 210
Step: 3
So, the perimeter of the table cloth is 210 inches.
Correct Answer is :   210 inches
Q7What is the perimeter of the rectangle? A. 24 in.
B. 78 in2.
C. 48 in.

Step: 1
Length of the rectangle = 16 in. and the width of the rectangle = 8 in.
Step: 2
Perimeter of a rectangle = 2(length + width)
[Formula.]
Step: 3
= 2(16 + 8)
[Substitute the values.]
Step: 4
= 2(24)
Step: 5
= 48 in.
[Multiply.]
Step: 6

Q8What is the perimeter of the rectangle? A. 32 m
B. 56 m
C. 19 m
D. 78 m

Step: 1
The perimeter of a rectangle is the sum of the lengths of its 4 sides.
Step: 2
Since a rectangle has 4 sides, and the opposite sides of a rectangle have the same length, a rectangle has 2 sides of length 18 m, and 2 sides of length 10 m.
Step: 3
Perimeter of the rectangle = 18 m + 18 m + 10 m + 10 m = 56 m
Step: 4
So, the perimeter of the rectrangle is 56 m.
Correct Answer is :   56 m
Q9Find the perimeter of a table cloth that is 62 cm long and 43 cm wide.
A. 210 cm
B. 105 cm
C. 148 cm
D. 167 cm

Step: 1
Perimeter of a rectangle is the sum of the measures of all the sides.
Step: 2
The perimeter of the table cloth (that is rectangular in shape) = 62 + 43 + 62 + 43 = 210
Step: 3
So, the perimeter of the table cloth is 210 cm.
Correct Answer is :   210 cm
Q10What is the perimeter of the rectangle shown ? A. 35 cm
B. 24 cm
C. 14 cm
D. 12 cm

Step: 1
The sum of all the sides of a figure is called the perimeter of the figure.
Step: 2
Perimeter of the figure = sum of the measures of all the four sides.
[The given figure has four sides.]
Step: 3
Perimeter of the figure = 7 + 5 + 7 + 5 = 24
[Add the lengths of the sides of the figure.]
Step: 4
So, perimeter of the given figure is 24 cm.
Correct Answer is :   24 cm
Q11A rectangular garden is 48 m long and 40 m wide. What is its perimeter ? A. 124 m
