## Answers

Ans. (a) We know that,Area of a rectangle = Length * Breadth

Area of a thick paper sheet = (Length * Breadth)

= (14*9) square cm = 126 square cm

Perimeter of a rectangular sheet

= 2(Length+ Breadth)

= 2(14 + 9) cm

= 2 * 23 cm = 46cm

(b) Let us cut strips of equal sizes out of the given paper sheet of length 14 cm and width 9 cm.

(c) Strips having width 1 cm:

There will be 9 strips of width 1 cm and length 14 cm. Let us join these strips end to end using tape to make a belt.

Its length

= (14+14+14+14+14+14+14+14+14)

= 9 * 14 cm = 126 cm

It’s perimeter = 2(126+1) cm = 2 127 cm = 254 cm

(d) Strips having length 1.5 cm:

There will be 6 strips of width 1.5 cm and length 14 cm. Let us join these strips end to end using tape to make a belt.

It’s length = (14+14+14+14+14+14) cm

= 6 * 14 cm = 84 cm

It’s perimeter = 2 (84 + 1.5) cm = 2* 85 – 5 cm = 171 cm

(e) Whose belt is the longest in the class?

Ans. (e) Strips having width 3 cm:

There will be 3 strips of width 3 cm and length 14 cm.

Let us join these strips end to end using tape to make a belt.

It’s length = (14+14+14) cm = 3 * 14 cm = 42 cm

It’s perimeter = 2(42+3) cm = 2 * 45 cm = 90 cm

Clearly, the belt with shortest width is the longest one. Thus, the belt having width 1 cm is the longest in the class. So, my belt is the longest.
