    A triangular field has a base of 14 m and a height of 18m. What is the area of the field.

    • A.

      252 square meters

    • B.

      64 square meters

    • C.

      126 square meters

    • D.

      504 square meters

    Correct Answer
    C. 126 square meters
    Explanation
    The area of a triangle is calculated by multiplying the base by the height and dividing the result by 2. In this case, the base is 14 m and the height is 18 m. So, the area of the triangular field would be (14 * 18) / 2 = 126 square meters.

  • 3. 

    If the base of a rectangle is 25 m and the area is 175 m2, what is the height of the rectangle?

    • A.

      21,875 m

    • B.

      100 m

    • C.

      35 m

    • D.

      7 m

    Correct Answer
    D. 7 m
    Explanation
    The area of a rectangle is calculated by multiplying its base by its height. In this case, we know that the base is 25 m and the area is 175 m2. To find the height, we can divide the area by the base. 175 m2 divided by 25 m equals 7 m. Therefore, the height of the rectangle is 7 m.

      965.6 cm

    • C.

      10,316 cm

    • D.

      10,042.95 cm

    Correct Answer
    A. 991 cm.
    Explanation
    The perimeter of a parallelogram can be found by adding up the lengths of all its sides. In this case, the base and the opposite side of the parallelogram are equal in length, so the perimeter is twice the length of the base plus twice the length of the side. Therefore, the perimeter is 2(471.5 cm) + 2(24 cm) = 943 cm + 48 cm = 991 cm.

    What is the height of a rectangle with perimeter 126.6 mm and base length 40.4 mm?**Draw a picture to help**

    • A.

      86.2 mm

    • B.

      45.8 mm

    • C.

      22.9 mm

    • D.

      5114.64 mm

    Correct Answer
    C. 22.9 mm
    Explanation
    The perimeter of a rectangle is equal to the sum of all its sides. In this case, the perimeter is given as 126.6 mm. We are also given the length of the base as 40.4 mm. To find the height, we need to subtract the length of the base from the perimeter, and then divide the result by 2 (since the other two sides are equal in length). So, (126.6 - 40.4) / 2 = 86.2 / 2 = 43.1 mm. Therefore, the height of the rectangle is 43.1 mm.

    Find the area of a triangle with a height that is 5 m and half of the base is 9m.

    Correct Answer
    45 meters squared
    45
    45m2
    45 meter squared
    Explanation
    The area of a triangle can be calculated using the formula: Area = (1/2) * base * height. In this case, the height is given as 5m and half of the base is given as 9m. Therefore, the full base would be 2 * 9m = 18m. Substituting these values into the formula, we get: Area = (1/2) * 18m * 5m = 45m^2. So, the correct answer is 45 meters squared.
