Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

The Perimeter is the total distance around a shape, starting and finishing at the same point.





Here the perimeter is 1 + 2 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 3 = 10 cm



Remember that the area of rectangle is its length x its width.

If you know the area and one side, you can divide to find the other side's length



A rectangular room has an area of 12 m2

If its length is 4 m, what is its width?



We divide 12 ÷ 4 = 3

So width = 3 m
