## Area Questions and Answers

**Example 1.
**Find the area of a square if the side of the square is 8 cm?

**Solution:**

Given,

side of the square=8 cm

Area of the square=side × side

=8 × 8=64 sq cm.

Therefore, the area of the square is 64 sq cm.

**Example 2.
**Find the area of the rectangle of length 13 cm and breadth 8 cm?

**Solution:**

Given,

The length of the rectangle=13 cm

The breadth of the rectangle=8 cm

Area of the rectangle=Length × breadth

=13 × 8=104 sq cm

Hence, the area of the rectangle is 104 sq cm.

**Example 3.
**Find the area of the rectangular room of length whose length is 180 m and breadth is 50 m?

**Solution:**

Given,

The length of the rectangular room=180 m

The breadth of the rectangular room=50 m

Area of the rectangular room=length × breadth

=180 × 50

=9000 sq m

Therefore, the area of the rectangular room is 9000 sq m.

**Example 4.
**The area of the square field is 121 sq cm. Find the side of the square field?

**Solution:**

Given,

The area of the square field is=121 sq cm

Area of the square=s × s=s^{2}

121=s^{2}

s^{2}=121

s=\(\sqrt{121}\)

s=11

Hence, the side of the square is 11 sq cm.

**Example 5.
**The cost of cementing a square yard at Rs 3 per sq meter is 1200. Find the money needed for fencing it at a rate of Rs 6 per meter?

**Solution:**

Given,

The cost of cementing a square yard at Rs 3 per sq meter is= 1200

Let the side be X m.

Rate of cementing=Rs 3 per sq m

Total cost=1200

Area for cementing=1200/3=400

x

^{2}= 400

x=20

The perimeter of the yard=4a

=4(20)

=80 m

Rate of fencing=Rs 6 per meter

The total cost of fencing the square yard is 80 × 6=Rs 480

Therefore, the total money needed for fencing the square yard is Rs 480.

**Example 6.
**The perimeter of a square is 120 m. Find the area of the square?

**Solution:**

The perimeter of a square=120 m

4a=120

a=120/4

=30 sq m

Therefore, the area of the square is 30 sq m.

**Example 7.
**Find the length of the rectangular garden whose area is 450 sq cm and breadth is 50 cm?

**Solution:**

Area of the rectangular garden=450 sq cm

The breadth of the rectangular garden=50 cm

The length of the rectangular garden=450/50

=9 cm

Therefore, the length of the rectangular garden is 9 cm.

**Example 8.
**A square with a side of 6 cm and a rectangle with a width of 3 cm has the same area. what’s the length of the rectangle?

**Solution:**

area of the square=6

^{2}

=36 sq cm

The width of the rectangle=3 cm

l ×3=36 sq cm

l=36/3=12 sq cm

Hence, the length of the rectangle is 12 sq cm.

**Example 9.
**A square with a side of 5 cm and a rectangle with a width of 5 cm has the same area. What is the length of the rectangle?

**Solution:**

The area of the square is=5

^{2}=25

The width of the rectangle=5 cm

l ×5=25

l=25/5=5

Hence, the length of the rectangle is 5 cm.

**Example 10.
**Find the cost of painting a square board of side 49 cm at the rate of Rs 5 per sq cm?

**Solution:**

Given

side of a square=49 cm

Area of the square=side × side=(49)

^{2}

=2401 sq cm

The cost of painting the square board at a rate of Rs 5 per sq cm is

2401 × 5=Rs12005

Therefore, the cost of painting the square board is Rs. 12005.
