Side of a square is 7 cm, we also have a rectangle which is 8 cm long and 6 cm wide. Choose the correct answer.
(A) Perimeter of square is greater
(B) Perimeter of rectangle is greater
(C) Perimeters of square and rectangle are equal
(D) Area of square is greater by 1
(E) Both (C) and (D)
Perimeter of square side = 4 cm
Perimeter of rectangle = 2(length + breadth) = 2(8+6) = 28 cm
Therefore, perimeters of square and rectangle are equal.
Area of square = side side
Area of rectangle = length breadth
Therefore, area of square is greater by 1 .
Hence, the answer is (E) because both (C) and (D) are true.
