What is the perimeter of a rectangle with length 13 and width 10?
A.
23 units
B.
130 units
C.
46 units
D.
33 units
E.
None of the above
Correct Answer
C. 46 units
Explanation The perimeter of a rectangle is calculated by adding up all four sides of the rectangle. In this case, the length of the rectangle is 13 units and the width is 10 units. To find the perimeter, we add twice the length and twice the width: 2(13) + 2(10) = 26 + 20 = 46 units. Therefore, the correct answer is 46 units.
