In this Math quiz we look at area and perimeter; mainly shapes such as squares and rectangles to give you some easy practice in the subject.

1.
If a square has sides that are 13 cm long, what is its area?
26 cm2
52 cm2
105 cm2
169 cm2
2.
What is the area of a square that has a length of 15 cm and a width of 16 cm?
225 cm2
256 cm2
240 cm2
Not a valid question
If the sides are different sizes then it cannot be a square!
3.
What is the perimeter of a rectangle with a length of 28 cm and a width of 16 cm
42 cm
64 cm
74 cm
88 cm
4.
Which of the following is not a valid measurement for an area?
102 m2
15 m
18 mm2
52 cm2
Area is always spoken of in terms of 'square' units i.e. 18 square millimeters or 52 square centimeters. In the answers above, 15 m is only a length
5.
Which of the following is not a 2 dimensional shape?
Rectangle
Sphere
Trapezium
Triangle
A sphere is a 3 dimensional shape. Remember that perimeter and area are only associated with 2 dimensional shapes and therefore you will never be asked to calculate the area or perimeter of a sphere
6.
To calculate the area of a rectangle it is necessary to multiply the length by the width; how is this formula usually represented?
A = l x w
e = mc2
L = a/w
W = a/l
Area = length x width
7.
What is the area of a rectangle with a length of 9 cm and a width of 7 cm?
49 cm2
54 cm2
63 cm2
77 cm2
9 x 7 = 63
8.
A rectangle has a length that is twice its width. If the length is 18 m, what is its perimeter?
36 m
48 m
54 m
72 m
The width of the rectangle must be 9 m
9.
An international soccer pitch is 105 m x 68 m. What is the area of one half of the pitch?
3,570 meters2
4,624 meters2
7,140 meters2
11,025 meters2
10.
A rectangle is 2 meters long and 88 centimeters wide; what is its area?
0.176 meters2
1.76 meters2
3.52 meters2
176 meters2
Don't mix up the meters and centimeters mentioned in the question
