### Find the perimeter of a square whose area is 1225 cm2

I could just give you the answer of 140 cm

but I think you need to know how I got this answer
A square is an object that has equal sides
area is calculated by length multiplied by width
so 1225 cm^2 area by using the square root of 1225 cm^2 gives you 35 cm
so each side is 35 cm and there are 4 sides so 35 cm +35 cm + 35 cm + 35 cm = 140 cm
If you are doing homework always show how you got the answer because in an exam having the working out shown can sometimes result in getting some marks even if you slipped up slightly and got the wrong answer.

### Regular pentagon QRSTU has a side length of 12 cm and an area of about 248 square cm. Regular pentagon VWXYZ has a perimeter of 140 cm. Find the area of VWXYZ. Round to the nearest tenth.

Find the scaling ratio
Perimeter of first pentagon is 12*5=60 cm
Scale factor (2nd/first)=140/60 =7/3
Ratio of areas varies as the square of the scale factor for the lengths
Area of second / area of first =(7/3)^2 =49/9
Area of second pentagon =248 *(49/9) cm^2
Finish the calculation.

### Regular pentagon QRSTU has a side length of 12 cm and an area of about 248 square cm. Regular pentagon VWXYZ has a perimeter of 140 cm. Find the area of VWXYZ. Round to the nearest tenth.

The two pentagons are similar. If k is the scale factor for the lengths, the ratio of the areas is k^2.
Pent 1 side =12 cm
Pent 2 side =140/5 =28 cm
Scale factor (larger over smaller) is k=28/12=7/3
Area of Pent_2= (49/9)*Area of Pent_1

### X(2x+3)=90

2X^2+3X-90=0
Discriminant: (3)^2-4(2)(-90)=729=(27)^2
Two roots
X_1=(1/4)*(-3+27)=6
X-2=(1/4)*(-3-27) =-(15/2), negative
Since the width must be positive, reject the negative root and keep X_1=6
Width =6
Length=2(6)+3=15

Check 6*(15)=90. Checks OK

### Area of rectangle is 4122cm2 .width of rectangle is 3cm.how do i find the length of it

Area = length X width, and you know the area and the width. So,

4122 sq cm = length X 3 cm

length = 4122 sq cm / 3 cm

length = 1374 cm

(That is one long, skinny rectangle, isn't it?)

### You are framing a rectangular print that is 10 inches wide and 34 inches long. this wall space has an area of 640 square inches. what is the width of the frame so that the framed print fits perfectly in...

If we assume the width of the frame is X. Then the one dimension of the framed picture will be 2X + 20 and the other dimension of the picture will be 2X + 34. We know the total area of the framed picture should be 640 in^2. Therefore:
(2X + 10) * (2X + 34) = 640
If you multiply this out you get:
4X^2 + 88X + 340 = 640
Subtract 640 from both sides:
4X^2 + 88X - 300 = 0
Divide both sides by 4:
X^2 + 22X - 75 = 0
Use the quadratic equation to solve for X, with A=1, B=22, C=75
X = [-22 +/- sqr(22^2-4*(-75)] /2
This reduces to:
(-22 +/- 48) / 2
The negative solution doesn't make sense in this case. Therefore: X = (-22 + 28) /2 = 6/3 = 3

Therefore the width of the frame should be 3 inches.

### A rectan Dear Madam Please look at the math questions below. Please help me solve the questions Question 1 : A rectangular tablecloth is 2.5 m long. Trim is to be sewn around the perimeter of the cloth...

1. Well this one is pretty simple. Since you are not supposed to trim the length trim the width instead.
to make the perimeter 0.4 m shorter cut the cloth by 0.2 m width the picture will make it clear.

2. let the length of rectangle be x cm
now original perimeter = 2(x+20) cm

new length = x-30 cm
breadth remains same = 20 cm
new perimeter = 2(x-30+20) cm = 2(x-10) cm

According to question

new perimeter = old perimeter /2
2(x-10) = 2(x+20) /2
2x -20 = x + 20
x = 40 cm

hence length of longer side 40 cm.

### The difference between the inner and outer surfaces of a cylindrical pipe is 88cm sq..if the height of the cylindrical pipe is 14cm and the volume is 176cm cube. Find the inner and outer radius of the...

The surface area of the outer surface is the circumference of the outside of the pipe times its length. So, if OR is the radius of the outside of the pipe and SO is the outer surface area,
SO = 2 * pi * OR * 14
Similarly, the surface area of the outer surface is SI = 2 * pi * IR *14 (if SI is the inner surface area and IR is the radius of the inside of the pipe.
The question states that the difference between the outside surface area and the inside surface area is 88 sq. cm:
SO - SI = 88 ; substituting:
(2 * pi * OR * 14) - (2 * pi * IR * 14) = 88 ; factoring
(2 * pi * 14) (OR - IR) = 88 ;dividing both sides by 2*pi*14
(OR - IR) = 88/(2 * pi) = 88/(2 * 3.14159*14) = 1.00
So, the outside radius is 1 cm more than the inside radius.

It's not clear if the volume stated is the volume of the metal in the pipe or the volume of air inside the pipe, so I will solve it both ways:
If volume of 176cc is of the air inside, the formula for this volume is 14 * pi * IR *IR
176 = 14 * 3.14159 * IR * IR ; dividing both sides by 14 * 3.14159
176/(14 * 3.14159) = IR * IR ; doing the arithmetic
4 = IR * IR ; taking the square root of both sides
sqrt(4) = IR
IR = 2 cm
substituting back into the first equation, the OR is 1cm more than the IR, so
OR = 3 cm

If volume of 176cc is of the iron in the pipe, the formula for that volume is the difference between the volume of the outside of the pipe and the volume of the inside of the pipe, or
(14 * pi * OR * OR) - (14 * pi * IR * IR) = 176 ; factoring
(14 * pi) ((OR * OR) - (IR * IR)) = 176 ; dividing both sides by 14 * pi
((OR * OR) - (IR * IR)) = 176/(14 * 3.14159) = 4
but, since OR is 1 cm more than IR (from above), we can substitute OR = IR + 1
and OR * OR = (IR + 1) * (IR + 1) = (IR*IR) + 2*IR +1
So, ((OR * OR) - (IR * IR)) = 4 becomes
(IR*IR) + 2*IR +1 - (IR*IR) = 4 ; simplifying (IRsquared - IRsquared = 0)
2*IR + 1 = 4 ; subtract 1 from both sides
2*IR = 3 ; divide both sides by 2
IR = 3/2 ;
IR = 1.5cm
OR = 2.5cm
