Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

Remember that:

 

The area of a rectangle is it's length x it's width.

 

The perimeter of a shape is the total distance around it's edge.

 

All of the problems in this worksheet are based on these two key facts.

  • Question 1

A rectangular field measures 50m by 40m.

 

What is its area in square metres?  

 

(Just write the number)

CORRECT ANSWER
2000
EDDIE SAYS
50 x 40 = 2000
  • Question 2

A rectangular field measures 50m by 40m.

 

What is its perimeter in metres?  

 

(Just write the number)

CORRECT ANSWER
180
EDDIE SAYS
50 + 50 + 40 + 40 = 180
  • Question 3

A rectangular field is 40m wide.  It is three times as long as it is wide.

 

What is its perimeter in metres?  

 

(Just write the number)

CORRECT ANSWER
320
EDDIE SAYS
40 x 3 = 120 (three times as long as it is wide) 40 + 40 + 120 + 120 = 320
  • Question 4

A rectangular field is 40m wide.  It is three times as long as it is wide.

 

What is its area in square metres?  

 

(Just write the number)

CORRECT ANSWER
4800
EDDIE SAYS
40 x 120 = 4800
  • Question 5

A rectangular field has a perimeter of 100m.  It is 20m wide.

 

What is its length in metres?  

 

(Just write the number)

CORRECT ANSWER
30
EDDIE SAYS
The width is 20 + 20 = 40. Subtract the perimeter and the width to get the length 100 - 40 = 60. The length of one side is 60 divided by 2 = 30.
  • Question 6

A rectangular field has a perimeter of 100m.  It is 20m wide.

 

What is its area in square metres?  

 

(Just write the number)

CORRECT ANSWER
600
EDDIE SAYS
Area = length x width Area = 30 x 20 = 600 (We found the length in the last question. The width is 20 + 20 = 40. Subtract the perimeter and the width to get the length 100 - 40 = 60. The length of one side is 60 divided by 2 = 30.)
  • Question 7

A rectangular field has a perimeter of 140m.  It is 20m wide.

 

What is its area in square metres?  

 

(Just write the number)

CORRECT ANSWER
1000
EDDIE SAYS
The width is 20 + 20 = 40. Subtract the perimeter and the width to get the length 140 - 40 = 100. The length of one side is 100 divided by 2 = 50. Area = length x width Area = 50 x 20 = 1000
  • Question 8

A rectangular field has a perimeter of 150m.  It is 20m wide.

 

What is its area in square metres?  

 

(Just write the number)

CORRECT ANSWER
1100
EDDIE SAYS
The width is 20 + 20 = 40. Subtract the perimeter and the width to get the length 150 - 40 = 110. The length of one side is 110 divided by 2 = 55. A = l x w A = 55 x 20 = 1100
  • Question 9

A rectangular field has an area of 1600m2.  It is 20m wide.

 

What is its perimeter in metres? 

 

(Just write the number)

CORRECT ANSWER
200
EDDIE SAYS
A = length x width 1600 = l x 20 1600/20 = 80 is the length Width = 20 x 2 = 40 Length = 80 x 2 = 160 Perimeter = 160 + 40 = 200
  • Question 10

A rectangular field has an area of 1600m2.  It is 50m wide

 

What is its perimeter in metres? 

 

(Just write the number)

CORRECT ANSWER
164
EDDIE SAYS
A = l x w 1600 = l x 50 1600/50 = 32 is the length Width = 50 x 2 = 100 Length = 32 x 2 = 64 Perimeter = 100 + 64 = 164
