#### Perimeter of a Square

We know that all the sides of a square are equal.

If we denote the length of each side of the square by s, then its perimeter is given by

P = (s + s + s + s) = 4s.

The perimeter of a square of side s is given by P = 4s.

If the perimeter P of a square is known, then its side s can be found easily.

Perimeter = 4 × side

Thus, side = ¼ × Perimeter

### Class 6 Maths Exercise 10.2 Extra Questions with Answer

##### A rectangular field is 45 m long and 32 m wide. Find its perimeter.

Length of the field = 45 m

Breadth of the field = 32 m

So, Perimeter of the field = 2 (length + breadth)

= 2 (45 + 32) m = 2 × 77 m

= 154 m

##### Length and breadth of a rectangular field are in the ratio 3 :2. If perimeter of the field is 70 m, then find its length and breadth in metre.

Let the length is 3x and the breadth is 2x.

We know that, P = 2 (l + b)

So, 70 m = 2(3x + 2x)

or, 70 m = 2 × 5x

x = 70/10 = 7 m

so, length = 3x

= 3 × 7 m

= 21 m and breadth = 2x

##### Concept of Area of close surface

The measure of the amount of surface enclosed by a figure is called its area.

##### Comparison of Areas

When the given surfaces are of the same shape, we compare them by placing one over the other.

##### Standard Units of Area

The area of a small figure is measured in square millimetres or square centimetres The bigger area is measured in square metres. Some examples given below:

(i) The area of a square of side 1 mm is 1 square millimetre, written as 1 square mm or 1 mm².

(ii) The area of a square of side 1 cm is 1 square centimetre, written as 1 square cm or 1 cm².

(iii) The area of a square of side 1 metre is 1 square metre, written as 1 square m or 1 m².

### Class 6 Maths Exercise 10.2 Important Questions

##### Where do we use perimeter and area in real life?

Uses of perimeter and area in daily life

(i) Fencing off an area to plot a crop. Since fences cost money for a given area you would want to minimize the perimeter.

(ii) Planning the construction of a house.

(iii) Building a barn with box stalls for horses.

(iv) Make Wooden furniture.

(v) Building a swimming pool.

##### How does perimeter relate to area?

The perimeter is the sum of all the side lengths of a shape. The area is the amount of two dimensional space a shape occupies.

##### Find the cost of fencing a square of the side 24 cm at the rate of Rs 4.50 per metre.

Side of the square = 24 cm

So, Perimeter of the square = 4 × side

= 4 × 24 cm = 96 cm

So, cost of fencing the square = Rs. (4.50 × 96)

= Rs. 432.

##### To fence a rectangular field, 260 m long wire is required. Find the length of the field if its breadth is 55 m.

Length of wire to fence the field = 260 m

= Perimeter of the field

So, Length of the field = perimeter – breadth

= ( ½ × 260 – 55) m = (130 – 55) m = 75 m
