1.Fill in the blanks.

(a) The best unit of measuring area is *m ^{2}*

(b) Measure of the amount of surface enclosed by a closed figure is called **Area.**

(c) Area of a rectangle = Length x Breadth

(d) Area of a square = Length x Length

(e) The area of a square having one side equal to 1 cm is **1 cm^{2}**

**2. Find the area of a rectangle whose dimensions are given below:**(a) Length = 8 cm Breadth = 3 cm

(b) Length = 12 cm Breadth = 9 cm

(c) Length = 32 m Breadth = 12 m

(d) Length = 1 m Breadth = 75 cm

Solution:

(a) Area of a rectangle = Length x Breadth

Length = 8 cm Breadth = 3 cm

Area of a rectangle = 8 *3 =24 **cm^{2}**

(b) Area of a rectangle = Length x Breadth

Length = 12 cm Breadth = 9 cm

Area of a rectangle = 12 *9 =108 **cm^{2}**

(c) Area of a rectangle = Length x Breadth

Length = 32 m Breadth = 12 m

Area of a rectangle = 32 * 12= 384 **m^{2}**

(d) Area of a rectangle = Length x Breadth

Length = 1 m Breadth = 75 cm

Area of a rectangle = 1 m * 0.75 m= 0.75 **m^{2}**

**3.Find the area of the following squares whose sides are given below: (a) 6 cm (b) 11 cm **

(a) Area of a square = Length x Length

Length =6 cm

Area of a square = 6 cmx 6 cm = 36 **cm^{2} **

(b) Area of a square = Length x Length

Length =11 cm

Area of a square = 11 cmx 11 cm = 121 **cm^{2} **

**4. The length of a carpet is 5 metres and the breadth is 2 metres. Find the area of the carpet. **

Area of a Carpet = Length x Breadth

Length = 5 m Breadth = 2 cm

Area of a Carpet = 5 m x 2 m = 10 **m^{2} **

**5. The length of the one side of a square handkerchief is 22 cm. Find the area of the handkerchief.**

Area of a Handkerchief= **Length **x **Length **

Length = 22 cm

Area of a Handkerchief = 22 cm x 22 cm = 484 **cm^{2} **

**6. Length of a playground is 10 metres and breadth is 6 meters. Find the area of playground.**

**Solution:**

Area of a Playground = **Length **x **Breadth**

Length = 10 m Breadth = 6 m

Area of a Handkerchief = 10 m x 6 m = 60 **m^{2} **
