### If n(A)=n(B),then A, B are called_________ sets.

• A.

Equal

• B.

Equivalent

• C.

Disjoint

• D.

### The difference between the length and breadth of a rectangle is 23 m. if its perimeter is 206 m, its area is

• A.

1520 square meter

• B.

2420 square meter

• C.

2480 square meter

• D.

2520 square meter

D. 2520 square meter
Explanation
Let's assume that the length of the rectangle is L and the breadth is B. According to the given information, L - B = 23 and the perimeter (P) is 206. The formula for the perimeter of a rectangle is P = 2(L + B). Substituting the given values, we get 206 = 2(L + B). Simplifying this equation, we find that L + B = 103. Now we have a system of equations: L - B = 23 and L + B = 103. Solving this system, we find that L = 63 and B = 40. The area (A) of a rectangle is given by the formula A = L * B. Substituting the values, we get A = 63 * 40 = 2520 square meters.

### If each side of a square is halved, the area of the new square is ______ the area of the original square

• A.

One-ninth

• B.

Double

• C.

One-fourth

• D.

Four times

C. One-fourth
Explanation
When each side of a square is halved, the resulting square has sides that are half the length of the original square. Since the area of a square is calculated by multiplying the length of one side by itself, halving the length of each side would result in the area being one-fourth of the original square. Therefore, the correct answer is one-fourth.
