Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ575

Six pieces of identical square blocks are arranged as below figure shown, If the total area of the figure was 96 m2, what was the perimeter of the figure?

Solution:

The number of square blocks = 6

The area of each square block = 96 ÷ 6 = 16 cm2

Since there are square in shape,

4  4 = 16

The length of each side of the square block = 4 cm

The perimeter of the figure = 4 × 3 × 4 = 48 cm
