### You may also like our videos

Below are some of the videos from our collection. We saw that students not only needed content but also videos. So, we decided to build a video platform for you also an algorithm which shows best videos suites to you related to the content you are browsing check out some videos which suit best for you.

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(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.
