1. A square and a rectangular field with

measurements as given in the figure have the same

perimeter.

By Josephine

Answer:The side of a square = 60 m

And the length of rectangular field = 80 m

According to question,

Perimeter of rectangular field

= Perimeter of square field

= 4 side

m

Now Area of Square field

=

= = 3600 m2

And Area of Rectangular field

= length breadth = 80 40

= 3200

Hence, area of square field is larger
