Area Of Plane Figures Questions and Answers

  • 1. 

    What do you call the measurement around the outside of a closed figure?

    • A.

      Perimeter

    • B.

      Area

    • C.

      Volume

    • D.

      Circumference

    Correct Answer
    A. Perimeter
    Explanation
    The measurement around the outside of a figure is called the perimeter. It is the sum of the lengths of all the sides of the shape. Perimeter is commonly used in various geometric contexts, such as measuring the boundary of polygons, rectangles, squares, and other closed figures.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    When you measure the inside of a two dimensional figure such as a square, rectangle or triangle you find the:

    • A.

      Perimeter

    • B.

      Volume

    • C.

      Area

    • D.

      Surface area

    Correct Answer
    C. Area
    Explanation
    When measuring the inside of a two-dimensional figure such as a square, rectangle, or triangle, you are finding the area. The area refers to the amount of space enclosed by the figure's boundaries. It is typically measured in square units, such as square inches or square meters. The other options mentioned, such as perimeter and volume, are not applicable for two-dimensional figures. The given answer, "area," correctly identifies the quantity being measured.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    How is the area of a trapezoid calculated?

    • A.

      Base × Height

    • B.

      ½ × Base₁ × Height

    • C.

      (Base₁ + Base₂) × Height

    • D.

      Length × Width

    Correct Answer
    C. (Base₁ + Base₂) × Height
    Explanation
    The formula for the area of a trapezoid is (Base₁ + Base₂) × Height, where Base₁ and Base₂ are the lengths of the parallel bases, and Height is the perpendicular distance between these bases.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What is the proper way to label the area of a rectangle that has a length of 5 inches and a width of 4 inches?

    • A.

      20 inches

    • B.

      20 square inches

    • C.

      9 square inches

    • D.

      9 inches

    Correct Answer
    B. 20 square inches
    Explanation
    The proper way to label the area of a rectangle with a length of 5 inches and a width of 4 inches is 20 square inches. The area of a rectangle is calculated by multiplying its length and width, which in this case would be 5 inches multiplied by 4 inches, resulting in 20 square inches.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    When you measure the height of a figure the line must be straight (not slanted), it must be perpendicular (at a 90 degree angle) to the base.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When measuring the height of a figure, it is conventionally done with a straight, perpendicular line. The height is typically measured at a right angle (90-degree angle) from the base of the figure. This ensures a standardized and consistent method of measuring height in geometry, making it easier to compare and analyze figures.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The base of a figure:

    • A.

      Is always just the bottom only

    • B.

      May be the bottom as well as the top

    • C.

      Is always only the top

    • D.

      Is only on the side

    Correct Answer
    B. May be the bottom as well as the top
    Explanation
    The base of a figure may be the bottom as well as the top because in some geometric shapes, such as a pyramid or a cone, the base can be both the bottom and the top. These shapes have a single flat surface at the bottom that serves as the base, and another flat surface at the top. Therefore, the base of a figure can be located at both the bottom and the top depending on the shape.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    If a square measures 3 cm on each side, what is its area?

    • A.

      3 sq. cm

    • B.

      12 sq. cm

    • C.

      9 sq. cm

    • D.

      23 sq. cm

    Correct Answer
    C. 9 sq. cm
    Explanation
    The area of a square is calculated by squaring the length of one of its sides. In this case, if the square measures 3 cm on each side:
    Area=3 cm×3 cm
    Area=9 sq. cm
    (Don't forget the all area answers are written in square units or with an exponent of 2.)

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    What is the area of a parallelogram that has a height of 7m and a base of 4 m?

    • A.

      14 square meters

    • B.

      11 square meters

    • C.

      28 square meters

    • D.

      15 square meters

    Correct Answer
    C. 28 square meters
    Explanation
    The area of a parallelogram is calculated using the formula:

    Area=Base×HeightArea=Base×Height

    For the given parallelogram with a base of 4m and a height of 7m:

    Area=4 m×7 m=28 square metersArea=4m×7m
