Correct option is C)

Let the side of the square be a cmThus, perimeter is 4a and area of the square is a

2 ∴a 2 =81 ⇒a= 81 ⇒a=9

Thus, perimeter =4×9 =36 cm

Now, wire is bent into a semicircle.

Therefore, 2r+πr=36 ⇒r(π+2)=36 $$ ⇒r= 7 22 +2 36 ⇒r= 7 36 36 ⇒r=7 cm

Area of semicircle =

2 1 πr 2 = 2 1 × 7 22 ×7×7 =77 cm 2

A 4 m B 3 m C 6 m D 2 m Open in App Solution

The correct option is **B** 3 m

When a wire is bent into a square, the total length of the wire should be divided into 4 sides of the square.

So, when we add all 4 sides of the square we'll get the total wire length.

∴

Perimeter of a square =

4 × s i d e ⇒ 12 = 4 × s i d e ⇒ s i d e = 12 4 ⇒ s i d e = 3 m

Hence the side length of the given square is 3 m.

Answer (1 of 6): The sides of the rectangle (it cannot be a wire, obviously) = 2(32+20) = 2*52 m. Each side of the square = 2*52/4 = 26 m. Area of the square = 26^2 = 676 sq m. The area of the rectangle = 32*20 = 640 sq m. The square encloses an area larger than the rectangle.

32 x 20 = 640 m² ( enclosed area )

Total length of the wire (32+20)x2= 104m

Making a square form with 104 m wire = each side is 104/4= 26m.

Enclosed area of that square: 26 x 26 = 676 m²

==> The/a square has the most enclosed area for the same circumference versus any rectangular form (of the same circumference ).

Area of a square = side*side = X^2

Converting that square to a rectangle, if you think about it first visually then mathematically, means increasing the length of two opposite sides by an amount A, which can only be done by decreasing the length of the other two opposite sides each by the same amount A. This is obvious when you think that you are not changing the overall length of the wire, which in a straight line is 32+32+20+20=104. The 104 is "invariant" i.e. it doesn't change, so increasing two sides decreases the other two sides by the same amount.

The area of any rectangle, therefore, is (

A wire is in a shape of a rectangle. Its length is 40 cm and its breadth is 22 cm. If the same wire is bent in the shape of a square, what will be the measure of each side. Also, which side encloses more area?

Let length of rectangle = L = 40 cm

& Breadth of rectangle = B = 22 cm

Area of rectangle = L×B = 40×22 = 880 Sqm

Perimeter of rectangle = 2(40+22) = 124 cm

Side of square = Perimeter of rectangle ÷ 4 = 124÷4 = 31 cm

Area of square = 31×31 = 961 Sqm

Therefore, Area of square is more than area of rectangle with the same perimeter.
