# How would you Arrange 4 squares to make a figure with a perimeter of 10 units?

Assuming each square is one square unit, if you put them all in a line, the perimeter ends up being 10 units.

### How does changing the size of the squares affect the perimeter and area of the figure?

If, by changing the size of the squares you mean increasing the length of the side by some multiple, then the perimeter increases in direct proportion to the length of the side while the area increases in direct proportion to the square of the side. If, by changing the size of the the squares you mean increasing the length of the side from x units by some fixed small amount, dx units, then the perimeter…

### Why does perimeter use square units?

The measure of the perimter of a figure does not use square units. Square units are used to measure the area of a figure. The perimeter of a figure is set down in linear measure, and is simply stated in units of length. An example might be a square of 1 metre on a side. It's area is 1 metre squared, but its perimter is the distance around it, or 1 metre + 1 metre…

### What is the area of a rectangle whose perimeter is 136?

If the only information that you have is ... A) the figure is a rectangle, and B) the perimeter ... then you cannot calculate the area. The area of a rectangle is the length multiplied by the height., The perimeter is twice the length plus twice the height. So, a rectangle with a length of 9 units and a height of 1 until will have a perimeter of 20 units and an area of 9…

### How do you find the area from the perimeter of a rectangle?

If the only information that you have is ... A) the figure is a rectangle, and B) the perimeter ... then you cannot calculate the area. The area of a rectangle is the length multiplied by the height., The perimeter is twice the length plus twice the height. So, a rectangle with a length of 9 units and a height of 1 unit will have a perimeter of 20 units and an area of 9…

### Length is 20more than width and perimeter is 300?

There seems to be a degree of difficulty about perimeter, which is just the measurement of the outline of the figure. It appears that your figure is a rectangle so the perimeter is merely twice (the sum of length and width, ie 150 units). If length exceeds width by 20 then length is 85 and width is 65.

### How does proportional change in the dimensions affect the perimeter of a figure?

If you are asking how the perimeter of an object changes if the whole object is proportionally changed: The perimeter changes by the same factor as the change in proportion of the whole object. For example: given a square that is 2 units by 2 units, changed by a factor of four, the new size would be 8 units by 8 units. The original perimeter was 2+2+2+2=8. The new perimeter is 8+8+8+8=32. So, multiplying the…

### Two figures can have the same perimeters and different areas?

Yes, two figures can have the same perimeter and different areas. For example, take a square with a perimeter of 16 units. This means that each side is 4 units, and its area is 16 units squared. Now, take a rectangle with width of 7 units and length of 1 unit. The perimeter of this figure is still 16 units ( (7 x 2) + (1 X 2) ), but its area is 7 units…

### True Or False Is The perimeter of a polygon is the number of square units contained in its interior?

The perimeter of a polygon is not generally equal to the number of square units contained in its interior, which is the definition of the area of the polygon, not of its perimeter. By coincidence, the area and perimeter of a square four units on each side have the same magnitude, 16, but the perimeter is 16 units and the area is 16 square units .
