NCERT In-text Question Page No. 206

Question 1.

Measure and write the length of the four sides of the top of your study table.

AB = …………… cm BC = ………….. cm

CD = ………….. cm DA = …………… cm

Now, the sum of the lengths of the four sides

= AB + BC + CD + DA

= ……….. cm + ……….. cm + ………….. cm + ……………. cm

= …………… cm

What is the perimeter?

Answer:

AB = 140 cm, BC = 80 cm,

AB = 140 cm, DA = 80 cm

∴ AB + BC + CD + DA

= 140 cm + 80 cm + 140 cm + 80 cm

= 140 cm

The perimeter 440 cm.

Note :This is an activity so the measures of AB, BC, CD and DA will be different for different table tops.

Question 2.

Measure and write the lengths of the four sides of a page of your notebook. The sum of the lengths of the four sides

= AB + BC + CD + DA

= ………….. cm + ………………. cm + ……………. cm + ……………. cm

= ……………… cm

What is the perimeter of the page?

Answer:

Please try yourself.

Question 3.

Meera went to a park 150 m long and 80 m wide. She took one complete round

on its boundary. What is the distance covered by her?

Answer:

The park is in the shape of rectangle.

Since she takes one complete round which is equal to perimeter of the rectangular park.

Perimeter of rectangular park

= 2 (length + breadth)

= 2 ( 150+ 80)

= 2 × 230

= 460 m

Therefore, the distance covered by her is 460m.

Question 4.

Find the perimeter of the following figures:

(a) Perimeter = AB + BC + CD + DA

= …………… + …………… + ……………. + ……………….+

= ………………

(b) Perimeter = AB + BC + CD + DA

= ……………. + …………. + ………….. + …………… +

= ……………..

(c) Perimeter = AB + BC + CD + DE + EF + FG + GH + HI+ IJ + JK+ KL + LA

= ……………… + ……………… + …………… + …………… +

……………… + …………….. + …………….. + ……………. +

……………. + …………….. + ……………. + …………….. +

(d) Perimeter=AB + BC + CD + DE + EF + FA

= ……………. + ……………. + ……………… + …………….. +

……………… + ……………. +

= ………………

Answer:

(a) AB = 40 cm, BC =10 cm,

AD = 10 cm and DC = 40 cm

∴ Perimeter = AB + BC + AD + DC

= 40 cm + 10 cm + 10 cm + 40 cm

= 100 cm

(b) AB = 5 cm, BC = 5 cm,

AD = 5 cm and AD = 5 cm

∴ Perimeter = AB + BC + CD + AD

= 5 cm + 5 cm + 5 cm + 5 cm = 20 cm

(c) Here, perimeter = AB + BC + CD + DE + EF + FG + GH + HI + IJ + JK + KL + LA

= 1 cm + 3 cm + 3 cm + 1 cm + 3 cm + 3cm + 1 cm + 3 cm + 3 cm + 1 cm + 3 cm + 3 cm = 28 cm

(d) Here, perimeter = AB + BC + CD + DE + EF + FA

= 100 m + 120 m + 90 m + 45 m + 60 m + 80 m = 495m
