Q1 :

A square and a rectangular field with measurements as given in the figure have the same perimeter. Which field has a larger area?

**Answer :**

Perimeter of square = 4 (Side of the square) = 4 (60 m) = 240 m

Perimeter of rectangle = 2 (Length + Breadth)

= 2 (80 m + Breadth)

= 160 m + 2 × Breadth

It is given that the perimeter of the square and the rectangle are the same.

160 m + 2 × Breadth = 240 m

Breadth of the rectangle = = 40 m

Area of square = (Side)^{2} = (60 m)^{2} = 3600
m^{2}

Area of rectangle = Length ×
Breadth = (80 × 40) m^{2}
= 3200 m^{2}

Thus, the area of the square field is larger than the area of the rectangular field.

Mrs. Kaushik has a square plot with the measurement as shown in
the following figure. She wants to construct a house in the
middle of the plot. A garden is developed around the house. Find
the total cost of developing a garden around the house at the
rate of Rs 55 per m^{2}.

**Answer :**

Area of the square plot = (25 m)^{2} = 625 m^{2}

Area of the house = (15 m) x
(20 m) =300 m^{2}

Area of the remaining portion = Area of square plot - Area of the house

= 625 m^{2}
- 300
m^{2} = 325 m^{2}

The cost of developing the garden around the house is Rs 55 per
m^{2}.

Total cost of developing the garden of area 325 m^{2} =
Rs (55 x 325)

= Rs 17,875
