#### Area and Perimeter of a Rectangle

Consider a rectangle with length = l units and breadth = b units. Then, we have:

(i) Area of the rectangle = (l x b) sq units

(ii) Length = units.

(iii)Breadth = units. (iv)Diagonal = units.

##### Area of 4 Walls of a Room

Let there be a room with length = l units, breadth = b units, height = h units. Then, we have:

(i) Area of the 4 walls = [2 (l + b) x h] sq units.

(ii) Diagonal of the room = √(l2 + b2 + h2) units.

#### Area and Perimeter of a Square

Let there be a square each of whose sides measures a units.

Then, we have:

(i) Area of the square = a2 sq units.

(ii) Side of the square = (√(area) units.

(iii) Diagonal of the square = (√2a) units.

(iv) Area of the square = ½ x (diagonal)2 sq units.

(v) Perimeter of the square = (4a) units.

### Class 7 Maths Exercise 11.1 Extra Questions

##### The length and breadth of a rectangular field are 120 m and 75 m respectively. Find (i) the area of the field and the cost of turfing it at Rs. 15 per m². (ii) the perimeter of the field and the cost of fencing it at Rs. 40 per m.

Length of the field = 120 m and its breadth = 75 m.

(i) Area of the field = (120 x 75) m = 9000 m².

Cost of turfing of the field = Rs. (9000 x 15)

= Rs. 135000.

(ii) Perimeter of the field = 2 x (l + b) units = 2 x (120 + 75) m = (2 x 195) m = 390 m.

##### The length and breadth of a rectangular field are in the ratio 3 : 2. If the area of the field is 3456 m², find the cost of fencing it at Rs. 60 per m.

According length and breadth ratio, let the length of the field be 3x m. Then, its breadth = 2x m.

So, area of the field = (3x X 2x) m² = (6×2) m².

But, area = 3456 m² (given)

So, 6x² = 3456 m²

Or, x² = 576 m²

Or, x = = 24 m. length = (3 x 24) m = 72 m and breadth = (2 x 24) m = 48 m.

So, perimeter of the field

= 2 x (l + b) units = 2 x (72 + 48) m = (2 x 120) m = 240 m.

So, the cost of fencing = Rs. (240 x 60) = Rs. 1400.

### Class 7 Maths Exercise 11.1 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 (ii) want to minimize the perimeter.

(iii) Planning the construction of a house.

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

(v) Making Wooden furniture.

(vi) 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.

##### What do area and perimeter have in common?

In geometry, area is the 2-dimensional space or region occupied by a closed figure, while perimeter is the distance around a closed figure i.e. the length of the boundary. For example, the area can be used to calculate the size of the carpet to cover the whole floor of a room.
