## Maharashtra State Board Class 5 Maths Solutions Chapter 12 Perimeter and Area Problem Set 50

Question 1.
The length of the side of each square is given below. Find its area.

(1) 12 metres
Solution:
Area of a square
= side x side
= 12 x 12 (2) 6 cm
Solution:
Area of a square
= side x side
= 6 x 6
= 36 sq.cm.

(3) 25 metres
Solution:
Area of a square
= side x side
= 25 x 25
= 625 sq.m.

(4) 18 cm
Solution:
Area of a square
= side x side
= 18 x 18
= 324 sq.cm. Question 2.
If the cost of 1 sq m of a plot of land is 900 rupees, find the total cost of a plot of land that is 25 m long and 20 m broad.
Solution:
Area of the rectangular plot
= 25 x 20
= 500 sq.m.

Cost of the plot of land
= Area of the plot x rate
= 500 x 900
= 4,50,000 rupees

Question 3.
The side of a square is 4 cm. The length of a rectangle is 8 cm and its width is 2 cm. Find the perimeter and area of both figures.
Solution:
Perimeter of a square = 4 x side
= 4 x 4
= 16 cm

Area of a square = side x side
= 4 x 4
= 16 sq.cm.

Perimeter of a rectangle
= 2 x length + 2 x breadth
= 2 x 8 + 2 x 2
= 16 + 4
= 20 cm

Area of a rectangle
= 8 x 2
= 16 sq.cm. Question 4.
What will be the labour cost of laying the floor of an assembly hall that is 16 m long and 12 m wide if the cost of laying 1 sq m is 80 rupees?
Solution:
Area of rectangular floor
= 16 x 12
= 192 sq.cm.

The cost of laying 1 sq.m, is 80 rupees.
Hence, the cost of laying 192 sq.m.
= 192 x 80
= 15,360 rupees.
∴ ₹ 15,360

Question 5.
The picture alongside shows some squares. Find out how many squares with the same measures will fit in the empty space in the figure. Solution:
length of the empty space = 4 – 1 = 3 cm
breadth of the empty space = 3 – 1 = 2 cm
square in empty space
= 3 x 2 = 6 sq.cm.

∴ 6 squares will fit in the empty space in the figure Question 6.
Divide the figure given alongside into four parts in such a way that the area and shape of each part is the same. Colour the parts with different colours. Fair and square

As shown in the figure alongside, a square plot of land owned by the government contains four houses and a well right in the centre. The government has to divide the houses and the land between four poor persons according to the following conditions.
(1) Each person must get only one house.
(2) The shape and area of the land must be the same.
(3) Each person must be able to use the well without trespassing on any one else’s land.

Show the appropriate divisions in four different colours.

Activity
Using a graph paper, find out the area of different rectangles and squares.

Question 1.
15 cm
Solution:
Area of a square
= side x side
= 15 x 15
= 225 sq.cm. Question 2.
21 cm
Solution:
Area of a square = side x side
= 21 x 21
= 441 sq.cm.

Solve the following:

Question 1.
The side of a square hall is of length 8 m. If it is tiled with a tile of length 4 m and breadth 2 m., how many tiles will be required?
Solution:
Area of the square hall
= side x side
= 8 x 8
= 64 sq.m.

Area of 1 rectangular tile
= 4 x 2

∴ 8 sq.m.

For 8 sq.m., 1 tile is required,
but for 64 sq.m = $$\frac{64}{8}$$ = 8 tiles required

∴ 8 tiles required Question 2.
Perimeter of a square is 16 cm. What is the length of each side? What is the area of the square?
Solution:
Perimeter of square = 4 x side
16 = 4 x side

∴ side of a square = $$\frac{16}{4}$$ = 4 cm
Area of the square
= side x side
= 4 x 4
= 16 sq.cm

∴ Side of square is 4 cm and area of the sqaure is 16 sq.cm

Question 3.
