## NCERT class 6 maths chapter 10 mensuration exercise: 10.1

Question: 1 Find the perimeter of each of the following figures :

Answer: The perimeter of the following figures-
Perimeter = sum of all sides

Therefore,
(a) Perimeter = 4 cm + 2cm +1 cm +5cm = 12 cm

(b) Perimeter = 23 cm + 35 cm + 40cm + 35cm = 133 cm

(c) Required perimeter = 15cm + 15 cm + 15 cm +15 cm = 60 cm

(d) Required perimeter= (4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4) cm = 20 cm

(e) Perimeter = 4cm + 0.5 cm +2.5cm +2.5cm + 0.5cm +4cm +1cm = 15cm

(f) Perimeter = Sum of all sides = 4(4cm) + 4(1 cm) + 8(3 cm) + 4(2cm) = (16 + 4 + 24 + 8)cm =52 cm

Question: 2 The lid of a rectangular box of sides 40 cm by 10 cm is sealed all round with tape. What is the length of the tape required?

Length = 40 cm and,

So, the length of tape required = perimeter of the rectangular box
= 2 (L + B)
= 2  50 cm
= 100 cm

Hence 100 cm tape is required.

Question: 3 A table-top measures 2 m 25 cm by 1 m 50 cm. What is the perimeter of the table-top?

Answer: We have table-top measures 2 m 25 cm by 1 m 50 cm.
Therefore, the Perimeter of the table-top = sum of all sides
= 2  (L+B)
= 2  ((2m + 0.25m) + (1m + 0.5m))
= 7.5 m

Question: 4 What is the length of the wooden strip required to frame a photograph of length and breadth 32 cm and 21 cm respectively?

Length and breadth of a photograph is 32 cm and 21 cm respectively.

So, According to question,
Length of wooden strip required to frame the photograph = 2 [L + B]
= 2 [32 + 21] cm
= 2  53 cm = 106 cm

Hence the required length of the strip is 106 cm or 1.06 m

Question: 5 A rectangular piece of land measures 0.7 km by 0.5 km. Each side is to be fenced with 4 rows of wires. What is the length of the wire needed?

A rectangular piece of land measures 0.7 km by 0.5 km and side is to be fenced with 4 rows of wires.

As per the question,

Required length of wires
= 4  2 [ 0.7 km + 0.5 km]
= 8  1.2 km
= 9.6 km

Question: 6 Find the perimeter of each of the following shapes :

(a) A triangle of sides 3 cm, 4 cm and 5 cm.

(b) An equilateral triangle of side 9 cm.

(c) An isosceles triangle with equal sides 8 cm each and third side 6 cm.

Answer: (a) The perimeter of a triangle = Sum of all the three sides
= 3cm + 4cm + 5cm
= 12 cm

(b) The perimeter of a eqilateral triangle
= Sum of all the sides of the triangle
= (9cm +9cm +9cm)
= 27cm

(c) Perimeter of a given isosceles triangle
= Sum of all sides
= 8cm + 8cm +6cm
= 22 cm

Question: 7 Find the perimeter of a triangle with sides measuring 10 cm, 14 cm and 15 cm.

Perimeter of a triangle = sum of all the sides of the triangle
=10cm + 14cm +15cm
= 39 cm

Question: 8 Find the perimeter of a regular hexagon with each side measuring 8 m.

A regular hexagon has six equal sides.
So, the perimeter of the regular hexagon
= 6  side
= 6  8m = 48m

Question: 9 Find the side of the square whose perimeter is 20 m.

The perimeter of the square is 20m
According to question,
The perimeter of square = 4  side

Question: 10 The perimeter of a regular pentagon is 100 cm. How long is its each side?

The perimeter of a regular pentagon is 100cm and,
no. of sides in regular pentagon is five (5)
therefore, the length of each side

Question: 11 A piece of string is 30 cm long. What will be the length of each side if the string is used to form :

(a) a square? (b) an equilateral triangle? (c) a regular hexagon?

Length of the string is 30 cm
(a)For square,
Number of sides = 4
Therefore, Length of one side = 30 /4 = 7.5 cm

(b)For equilateral triangle,
Number of sides = 3
Therefore, length of sides = 30/3 = 10cm

(c) For a regular hexagon,
Number of sides = 6
Therefore, Length of one side = 30/6 = 5cm

Question: 12 Two sides of a triangle are 12 cm and 14 cm. The perimeter of the triangle is 36 cm. What is its third side?

The two sides of the triangle are 12 cm and 14 cm. let the third side be A.
And the perimeter of the triangle is 36cm.

Therefore, the Perimeter of the triangle
= sum of all sides of the triangle
= 12cm +14cm + A = 36cm
= A + 26cm =36cm
= A = 10cm

Question: 13 Find the cost of fencing a square park of side 250 m at the rate of rupees 20 per metre.

Length of the square park = 250 m

Cost of fencing = rs. 20 per meter

Therefore, the Perimeter of the square park =
= 4  250
=1000 m
= 1km

So, total cost = 20  1000 = 20,000 Rs

Question: 14 Find the cost of fencing a rectangular park of length 175 m and breadth 125 m at the rate of rupees 12 per metre.

The length of the rectangular park is 15 m and the breadth is 125m.
Cost of fencing rate = Rs 12 per meter

Therefore,
Perimeter of the park
=2 [L + B]
= 2 [175 +125]
=2  300m
=600m

So, the total cost of fencing = 600  12 = Rs. 7,200

Question: 15 Sweety runs around a square park of side 75 m. Bulbul runs around a rectangular park with length 60 m and breadth 45 m. Who covers less distance?

Length of the square park = 75m
Length and breadth of the rectangular park is 60 m and 45m respectively

Therefore,
The perimeter of the square park
= 4  75
=300 m

Also, the Perimeter of the rectangular park
= 2  ( 60 + 45)
=2  105m
=210m

Hence Bulbul covers the less distance.

Question: 16 What is the perimeter of each of the following figures? What do you infer from the answers?

Answer: (a) The perimeter of the square
= Sum of all the four side = 4  side
= 4  25
= 100 cm

(b)The perimeter of the rectangle
= SUm of all the sides = 2  [length + breadth )
= 2  (20 + 30)
= 2  50
= 100

(c)The perimeter of the rectangle
= Sum of all the sides = 2  [length + breadth ]
= 2  (40 + 10)
= 2  50
= 100 cm

(d)The perimeter of the triangle
= Sum of all three sides of the triangle
= 30cm + 30cm + 40cm
=100cm

We conclude all the given figures have the same perimeter.

Question: 1 Find the areas of the following figures by counting square:

Answer: Area of 1 square = 1sq. unit

(a) Number of total squares = 9
Therefore, the area of 9 squares = 9 sq. units

(b) In fig (b) the total number of square = 5
Therefore, are = 5 sq units

(c) In fig (c) the number of squares = 4
So, the area is 4 sq. units

(d) In fig (d) number of squares = 8
Therefore, area = 8 sq. units

(e) Total number of square = 10
therefore, area = 10 sq. units

(f) total number of squares = 4
Therefore, area = 4 sq. units

(g) Total number of square = 6
therefore, area = 6 sq. units

(h) Total number of square = 5
therefore, area = 5 sq. units

(i) Total number of square = 9
therefore, area = 9 sq. units

(j) Total number of square = 4
therefore, are = 4 sq. units

(k) Total number of square = 5
therefore, area = 5 sq. units

(l) Total number of full squares = 4
Squares more than half = 3
half squares = 2
Therefore, the total area = 8 sq. units

(m) Count more than half squares as 1
Now, the total number of squares = 14
Therefore, the total area = 14 sq. unit

(n) Count more than half squares as 1
Now, the total number of squares = 18
Therefore, the total area = 18 sq. unit

Hence the area of carpet needed is

Question: 8 A floor is 5 m long and 4 m wide. A square carpet of sides 3 m is laid on the floor. Find the area of the floor that is not carpeted.

Length of the floor = 5 m
and its width = 4 m
Therefore, the area of the floor

And, side of the square carpet = 3m
Therefore, the area of the square carpet =
= 3m  3m = 9m 2

Thus, the area of the floor which is not covered with carpet =

Question: 9 Five square flower beds each of sides 1 m are dug on a piece of land 5 m long and 4 m wide. What is the area of the remaining part of the land?

Length and breadth of the land are 5m and 4 m.
Side of the square flower bed = 1m
Therefore the area of the bed = 1

So, Area of 5 square flower bed = 5

Area of the and = length  breadth

Thus, the area of the remaining part of the land = Area of land - area of the flower bed
= 20  - 5  = 15

Question:1 0 By splitting the following figures into rectangles, find their areas (The measures are given in centimetres).

Answer: (a) Split the given figures into small rectangular parts as shown here;
