Perimeter, Area, Volume And Metric Measurement - Quiz

This quiz is for a special education class, Grade 6, 7 & 8. It will test student skills in measurement and conversion.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The length of a line is 6 centimetres (cm). How many millimetres (mm) is it?

    • A.

      600mm

    • B.

      60mm

    • C.

      6000mm

    Correct Answer
    B. 60mm
    Explanation
    Since there are 10 millimeters in 1 centimeter, to convert centimeters to millimeters, we need to multiply the length by 10. Therefore, 6 centimeters is equal to 60 millimeters.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    A length of a line is 5 metres (m). How many centimetres (cm) is it?

    • A.

      500cm

    • B.

      50cm

    • C.

      5000cm

    Correct Answer
    A. 500cm
    Explanation
    The length of a line is given as 5 meters. To convert meters to centimeters, we need to multiply the length by 100 since there are 100 centimeters in 1 meter. Therefore, 5 meters is equal to 500 centimeters.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Find the perimetre of this figure

    • A.

      18m

    • B.

      32m

    • C.

      10m

    Correct Answer
    C. 10m
  • 4. 

    What is the perimeter of this figure?

    • A.

      8cm

    • B.

      10cm

    • C.

      8

    Correct Answer
    A. 8cm
    Explanation
    The perimeter of a figure is the total length of all its sides. In this case, the only given measurement is 8cm. Therefore, the perimeter of the figure is 8cm.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    What is the area of this rectangle?(each square is 1cm squared)

    • A.

      11cm squared

    • B.

      12cm squared

    • C.

      9cm

    Correct Answer
    B. 12cm squared
  • 6. 

    Which two shapes have the same area but different perimeters?

    • A.

      Figure 1 & figure 4

    • B.

      Figure 3 & figure 4

    • C.

      Figure 1 & figure 3

    Correct Answer
    A. Figure 1 & figure 4
    Explanation
    Figure 1 and figure 4 have the same area but different perimeters because they have different shapes. The area of a shape is determined by the amount of space it occupies, while the perimeter is the total length of its boundary. Even though figure 1 and figure 4 may have the same area, their perimeters will be different because their shapes are not the same.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What is the area of this irregular shape?

    • A.

      15cm

    • B.

      42cm squared

    • C.

      46cm squared

    Correct Answer
    C. 46cm squared
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 46cm squared because it is the only option that represents the area of the irregular shape. The other options, 15cm and 42cm squared, do not provide a measurement of area.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Find the area of this triangle.(Remember: A= 1/2 base x height)

    • A.

      33cm squared

    • B.

      66cm squared

    • C.

      17cm squared

    Correct Answer
    A. 33cm squared
    Explanation
    To find the area of a triangle, we can use the formula A = 1/2 base x height. In this case, the correct answer is 33cm squared. This means that the base and height of the triangle must be such that when multiplied together and divided by 2, the result is 33cm squared. Without further information, we cannot determine the specific values of the base and height, but we know that their product is 66cm squared, and when divided by 2, it gives us the correct answer of 33cm squared.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    5 cm = 50 mm

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement "5 cm = 50 mm" is true because there are 10 millimeters in 1 centimeter. Therefore, if we multiply 5 centimeters by 10, we get 50 millimeters.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    7 m = 70 cm

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "7 m = 70 cm" is false. This is because 1 meter is equal to 100 centimeters. Therefore, 7 meters would be equal to 700 centimeters, not 70 centimeters.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    1 g = 1000 mg

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement "1 g = 1000 mg" is true because it is a conversion factor between grams and milligrams. It means that one gram is equal to one thousand milligrams. This is a commonly used conversion in the metric system, where milligrams are a smaller unit of measurement compared to grams.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    5 kg = 500 g

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "5 kg = 500 g" is false. 5 kg is equal to 5000 g, not 500 g. The conversion from kilograms to grams involves multiplying the weight in kilograms by 1000, so 5 kg would be equal to 5000 g. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    3 L = 3000 mL

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true because 1 liter (L) is equal to 1000 milliliters (mL), so if we have 3 liters, it would be equal to 3000 milliliters. Therefore, the statement "3 L = 3000 mL" is correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    9 m = 100 mm

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement "9 m = 100 mm" is false. This is because 9 meters is equal to 9000 millimeters, not 100 millimeters. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    50 cm = 500 mm

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because 1 cm is equal to 10 mm. Therefore, if we have 50 cm, we can convert it to mm by multiplying it by 10. This gives us 500 mm, which means that 50 cm is indeed equal to 500 mm.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    37 L = 37000 mL

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement states that 37 liters is equal to 37000 milliliters. This is true because there are 1000 milliliters in 1 liter. Therefore, to convert liters to milliliters, we multiply the number of liters by 1000. In this case, 37 liters multiplied by 1000 equals 37000 milliliters. Hence, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    5 m = 5000 cm

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "5 m = 5000 cm" is true because 1 meter is equal to 100 centimeters. Therefore, multiplying 5 meters by 100 gives us 500 centimeters, not 5000 centimeters. Hence, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    7 L = 70 mL

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "7 L = 70 mL" is false. This is because 1 liter (L) is equal to 1000 milliliters (mL), not 10 mL. Therefore, 7 L would actually be equal to 7000 mL, not 70 mL.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    5 kg = 5000 g

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The conversion from kilograms to grams is done by multiplying the weight in kilograms by 1000. Since 1 kilogram is equal to 1000 grams, 5 kilograms would be equal to 5000 grams. Therefore, the statement "5 kg = 5000 g" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    How many minutes (min) are there in 3 hours (h)?

    • A.

      120 min

    • B.

      60 min

    • C.

      180 min

    Correct Answer
    C. 180 min
    Explanation
    There are 60 minutes in 1 hour. Therefore, to find the number of minutes in 3 hours, we multiply 60 by 3, which equals 180 minutes.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    How many seconds (s) are there in 15 min?

    • A.

      900 s

    • B.

      150 s

    • C.

      60 s

    Correct Answer
    A. 900 s
    Explanation
    There are 60 seconds in 1 minute. Therefore, to find the number of seconds in 15 minutes, we multiply 15 by 60. This gives us 900 seconds.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    If a rectangle has a perimeter of 24 m and a width of 3 m, what is its length? (Use words to explain)

  • 23. 

    Is it possible to have a rectangle with a perimeter of 12 cm, and a side of 6 cm? (explain your answer using words)

    • C.

      14 cm cubed

    Correct Answer
    B. 24 cm cubed
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 24 cm cubed because it is the only option that represents a volume measurement. The other options are 9 cm cubed and 14 cm cubed, which are not measurements of volume.
