**Strategies for Finding Area**

Here are two strategies you can use to find the area of a rectangle.

Find the area of each rectangle.

Question 1.

Area = _________ square units

Answer:

There are 2(1/5) squares in each column and 4 columns.

2(1/5) +2(1/5) +2(1/5) +2(1/5) = 8(4/5) squares in all.

Area = 8(4/5) square units

Explanation:

In the above image we can observe a rectangle. A rectangle is divided into unit squares. There are 2(1/5) squares in each column. There are 4 columns. An addition sentence is a mathematical expression that shows two or more values added together. Add 2(1/5) squares as four times because here 4 columns are there. By adding the squares results 8(4/5). Area of the rectangle is equal to the 8(4/5) square units.

Question 2.

Area = _________ square units

Answer:

There are 4(1/3) squares in each row and 3 rows.

4(1/3) + 4(1/3) + 4(1/3) = 13 squares in all.

Area = 13 square units

Explanation:

In the above image we can observe a rectangle. A rectangle is divided into unit squares. There are 4(1/3) squares in each row. There are 3 rows. An addition sentence is a mathematical expression that shows two or more values added together. Add 4(1/3) squares as three times because here 3 rows are there. By adding the squares results 13. Area of the rectangle is equal to the 13 square units.

**How Many Fields?**

A farmer has one square mile of land.

Question 1.

If he divides his land into square fields that are \(\frac{1}{2}\) mile long and \(\frac{1}{2}\) mile wide, how many fields will he have?

________ fields

Answer:

In the above image we can observe four equal square fields.

Explanation:

In the above image we can observe one square field represents one mile. There are 4 square boxes total. He have 4 fields.

Question 2.

If he divides his land into square fields that are \(\frac{1}{3}\) mile long and \(\frac{1}{3}\) mile wide, how many fields will he have?

___________ fields

Answer:

He divides his land into square fields that are 1/3 mile long and 1/3 mile wide. In the above image we can observe 1 mile long and 1 mile wide. [(1/3) + (1/3) + (1/3)] = 1 mile. Here 3(1/3) miles is equal to 1 mile.

Here we have 3 rows and 3 columns. In 1st row we have 3 squares. In 2nd row we have 3 squares. In 3rd row we have 3 squares.

Total number of fields are 3 + 3 + 3 = 9.

Explanation:

In the above image we can observe 1/3 mile long and 1/3 mile wide. Here we have 3 rows and 3 columns.

First row first column represents [(1/3) +(1/3)] = 2/3.

First row second column represents [(1/3) +(1/3)] = 2/3.

First row third column represents [(1/3) +(1/3)] = 2/3.

In first row we have (2/3) + (2/3) +(2/3) = 6/3 = 3 squares.

In second row we have (2/3) + (2/3) +(2/3) = 6/3 = 3 squares.

In third row we have (2/3) + (2/3) +(2/3) = 6/3 = 3 squares.

Total number of fields are 3 + 3 + 3 = 9 fields.

Question 3.

If he divides his land into square fields that are \(\frac{1}{4}\) mile long and \(\frac{1}{4}\) mile wide, how many fields will he have?

_________ fields

Answer:

He divides his land into square fields that are 1/4 mile long and 1/4 mile wide. In the above image we can observe 1 mile long and 1 mile wide. [(1/4) + (1/4) + (1/4) + (1/4)] = 1 mile. Here 4(1/4) miles is equal to 1 mile.

Here we have 4 rows and 4 columns. In 1st row we have 4 squares. In 2nd row we have 4 squares. In 3rd row we have 4 squares. In 4th row we have 4 squares.

Total number of fields are 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 = 16 Fields.

Explanation:

In the above image we can observe 1/4 mile long and 1/4 mile wide. Here we have 4 rows and 4 columns. In 1st row we have 4 squares. In 2nd row we have 4 squares. In 3rd row we have 4 squares. In 4th row we have 4 squares.

Total number of fields are 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 = 16.

Question 4.

a. Suppose the farmer buys another \(\frac{1}{2}\) square mile of land and divides all his land into square fields \(\frac{1}{4}\) mile long and \(\frac{1}{4}\) mile wide. How many fields will he have?

_______ fields

Answer:

Total area of land = 1 + 1/2 = 3/2 square miles.

Area of square fields = 1/4 x 1/4 = 1/16 square miles.

Number of fields = (3/2)/(1/16) = 24 fields.

Explanation:

The farmer buys another 1/2 square mile of land and divides all his land into square fields 1/4 mile long and 1/4 mile wide. Area of square fields is equal to 1/4 x 1/4 = 1/16 square miles. Total area of land = 1 + 1/2 = 3/2 square miles. Number of fields is equal to 24.

b. What is the total area of his land in square miles?

**Volume Measurement**

Volume is the measure of the amount of space a 3-dimensional object takes up. When we talk about the volume of a container (for example, a vase, a can, a glass, a bowl, a bucket, a box), we are talking about the amount the container can hold.

Only 3-dimensional objects take up space and have volume. Two-dimensional shapes have other attributes that we can measure, such as length and area. But 2-dimensional shapes do not have volume.

Question 1.

Circle each item below that has volume.

Answer:

Explanation:

Volume is the measure of the amount of space a 3-dimensional object takes up. The objects that are having volume are a bar of soap, a baseball, an empty crayon box, a bucket, a swimming pool, a cereal box, the kitchen sink.

**Comparing Volumes**

Today you learned two different formulas to find the volume of a rectangular prism:

V = l × w × h (volume = length × width × height)

V = B × h (volume = area of the base × height)

Use the formulas to find the volume of each prism. Be sure to include a unit. Cross out the prism in each set that has a volume different than the other prisms.

Question 1.

Set 1

Answer:

Explanation:

In the above image we can observe three different types of prisms. For the above three prisms we have to find volume.

V = l × w × h (volume = length × width × height)

V = B × h (volume = area of the base × height)

1. The first prism contains length, width, and height. Length = 2 units, width = 2 units, height = 10 units.

The volume of a rectangular prism = length x width x height.

Volume = 2 x 2 x 10

Volume = 40 cubic units.

2. The second prism contains area of the base, and height. Area of the base = 8 square units, height = 5 units.

The volume of a rectangular prism = Area of the base x height.

Volume = 8 x 5

Volume = 40 cubic units.

3. The third prism contains length, width, and height. Length = 6 units, width = 2 units, height = 3 units.

The volume of a rectangular prism = length x width x height.

Volume = 6 x 2 x 3

Volume = 36 cubic units.

Cross out the third prism because third prism volume is different from other prisms volume.

Question 2.

Set 2

Answer:

Explanation:

In the above image we can observe three different types of prisms. For the above three prisms we have to find volume.

V = l × w × h (volume = length × width × height)

V = B × h (volume = area of the base × height)

1. The first prism contains length, width, and height. Length = 2 cm, width = 2 cm, height = 4 cm.

The volume of a rectangular prism = length x width x height.

Volume = 2 x 2 x 4

Volume = 16 cubic centimeter.

2. The second prism contains area of the base, and height. Area of the base = 9 square centimeter, height = 2 centimeter.

The volume of a rectangular prism = Area of the base x height.

Volume = 9 x 2

Volume = 18 cubic centimeter.

3. The third prism contains length, width, and height. Length = 9 centimeter, width = 2 centimeter, height = 1 centimeter.

The volume of a rectangular prism = length x width x height.

Volume = 9 x 2 x 1

Volume = 18 cubic centimeter.

Cross out the first prism because first prism volume is different from other prisms volume.

**Practice**

Find the area of each rectangle.

Question 3.

Area = _________

Answer:

There are 4(1/2) squares in each row and 2 rows.

4(1/2) + 4(1/2) = 8 + [(1/2) +(1/2)] = 9 squares in all.

Area = 9 square centimeters.

Explanation:

In the above image we can observe a rectangle. A rectangle is divided into unit squares. There are 4(1/2) squares in each row. There are 2 rows. An addition sentence is a mathematical expression that shows two or more values added together. Add 4(1/2) squares as two times, because here 2 rows are there. By adding the squares results 9. Area of the rectangle is equal to the 9 square centimeters.

Question 4.

Area = __________

Answer:

There are 3(1/2) squares in each column and 5 columns.

3(1/2) + 3(1/2) + 3(1/2) + 3(1/2) + 3(1/2) = 15 + [(1/2) +(1/2) +(1/2) + (1/2) + (1/2)] = 17(1/2) squares in all.

Area = 17(1/2) square inches.

Explanation:

In the above image we can observe a rectangle. A rectangle is divided into unit squares. There are 3(1/2) squares in each column. There are 5 columns. An addition sentence is a mathematical expression that shows two or more values added together. Add 3(1/2) squares as five times, because here 5 columns are there. By adding the squares results 17(1/2). Area of the rectangle is equal to the 17(1/2) square inches.
