**Area and Perimeter Worksheets Grade 6 – Explanation 10-**

The radius of given circle is r = 28 cm

Circumference of the circle = 2∏r

= ( 2 x 22/7 x 28 ) cm

= 176 cm

Hence, the circumference of the given circle is 176 cm

**Correct Answer – d) 176 cm**

**Area and Perimeter Worksheets Grade 6 – Explanation 11-**

The diameter of given circle = 14 cm

Then, radius = Diameter/2 = 14/2 cm = 7 cm

Circumference of circle = 2∏r

= ( 2 x 22/7 x 7 ) cm

= 44 cm

Hence, the circumference of the given circle is 44 cm

**Correct Answer – c) 44 cm**

**Area and Perimeter Worksheets Grade 6 – Explanation 12-**

Let, the radius of the given circle be r cm

As we know that,

Circumference of the circle = 2∏r cm

Given,

Circumference of a circle = 440cm

2∏r = 440 (from above)

= 70cm

Hence, the radius of the circle = 70cm

**Correct Answer – a) 70 cm**

**Area and Perimeter Worksheets Grade 6 – Explanation 13-**

Let, the radius of the given circle be r cm

As we know that,

Circumference of the circle = 2∏r cm

Given,

Circumference of a cicle = 44cm

Therefore,

2∏r = 44 (from above)

= 7cm

Diameter of the circle = 2r

= (2 x 7)cm

= 14cm

Hence, the Diameter of the circle is 14 cm

**Correct Answer – c) 14 cm**

**Area and Perimeter Worksheets Grade 6 – Explanation 14-**

Length of the field = 80 m

Breadth of the field = 60 m

Perimeter of the field = 2 (l+b) units

= 2 ( 80 + 60 ) m

= ( 2 x 140 ) m

= 280 m

Total length of rope = 3 x Perimeter of the field

= ( 3 x 280 ) m

= 840 m

**Correct Answer – a) 840 m**

**Area and Perimeter Worksheets Grade 6 – Explanation 15-**

Radius of the wheel = 140/2 cm = 70 cm

Circumference of the wheel = 2∏r

= ( 2 x 22/7 x 70 ) cm

= 440 cm

= 4.4 m ( As we know that, 1 m = 100 cm )

Distance covered by wheel in 1 revolution = Circumference of the wheel

Distance covered by wheel in 1 revolution = 4.4 m

Distance covered by wheel in 1000 revolutions = ( 4.4 x 1000 ) m

= 4400 m

= 4.4 km ( As we know that, 1 m = 1000 km )

Hence, Distance covered by wheel in 1000 revolutions is 4.4 km

**Correct Answer – d) 4.4 km**

**Area and Perimeter Worksheets Grade 6 – Explanation 16-**

Length of the room = 125 m

Breadth of the room = 10 m

Area of the floor of the room = ( 125 x 10 ) m²

= 1250 m²

Area of carpet required = 1250 m²

= 1250 m²/5 m = 1250 m/5 = 250 m

Rate of carpeting = 20 per metre.

Cost of carpeting = ₹ ( 250 x 20 ) = ₹ 5000

**Correct Answer – b) ₹ 5000 **

**Area and Perimeter Worksheets Grade 6 – Explanation 17-**

Let, length and breadth be 3y m and 5y m

Since, perimeter of rectangle = 2 (l+b) units

= 2 ( 3 y + 5 y ) m

= ( 2 x 8 y ) m

= 16ym

But, perimeter of rectangle = 32 m

Since, 16 y = 32

y = 32/16

y = 2

So, length = ( 3 x 2 ) m = 6 m

breadth = ( 5 x 2 ) m = 10 m

**Correct Answer – c) Length = 6 m , breadth = 10 m**

**Area and Perimeter Worksheets Grade 6 – Explanation 18-**

Length of the field = 65 m

Breadth of the field = 55 m

Perimeter of the field = 2 ( l+b ) units

= 2 ( 65 + 55 ) m

= ( 2 x 120 ) m

= 240 m

Cost of fencing per metre = ₹ 10

Total cost of fencing = ₹ ( 240 x 10 )

= ₹ 2400

**Correct Answer – b) ₹ 2400 **

**Area and Perimeter Worksheets Grade 6 – Explanation 19-**

Given

Area = 600 cm²

breadth = 30 cm

= 600 cm²/30 cm = 600 cm/30 = 20 cm

Perimeter of the rectangle = 2 x ( l + b ) cm

= 2 x ( 30 + 20 ) cm

= ( 2 x 50 ) cm

= 100 cm

Hence, the perimeter of the rectangle is 100 cm

**Correct Answer – b) 100 cm**

**Area and Perimeter Worksheets Grade 6 – Explanation 20-**

Given

Area = 108 cm²

length = 12 cm

= 108 cm²/12 cm = 108 cm/12 = 9 cm

Perimeter of the rectangle = 2 x ( l + b ) cm

= 2 x ( 12 + 9 ) cm

= ( 2 x 21 ) cm

= 42 cm

Hence, perimeter of the rectangle is 42 cm

**Correct Answer – b) 42 cm**
