Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ344
Figure A, shown below, has an area of 768 cm2. It is made up of 4 similar rectangles. If the rectangles are re-arranged to form Figure B, find the perimeter of Figure B.
The length (L) of the rectangle is 3 times of the breadth (B)
The area of one rectangle = 768 ÷ 4 = 192cm2
3B × B = 192
B × B = 64 = 8 × 8
The breadth of the rectangle = 8cm
The length of the rectangle = 3 × 8 = 24cm
The perimeter of figure B = 24 × 8 = 192cm
