Exercise 4:

Area of a figure.

A_{triangle}=\frac{base\times  \,hauteur}{2}=\frac{17\times  \,90}{2}=765\,mm^2

A_{rectangle}=Longueur\times  \,largeur=17\times  \,16=272\,mm^2


Exercise 5:

A_{losange}=42\times  \,26=1092\,cm^2

A_{disque}=\pi\times  \,R\times  \,R=\pi\times  \,10\times  \,10=100\pi


Metal part.

Exercise 6:

Quadrangle and parallelogram.

First parallelogram, a rectangle, whose area is calculated by the product of two consecutive sides.

Area (ABCD) = 3*4 = 12 area units

To calculate the areas of the other parallelograms let’s use this diagram:

In general hxAB gives us the Area.


Second parallelogram, we need to determine h

We see that from top to bottom, h is 4 and the base is 3. So the area is 12 area units.

Third parallelogram, we need to determine h

From top to bottom, h is always 4 area units while the base is 3 area units

The area is therefore 12 area units.

Fourth and last parallelogram, we have to determine h

From left to right, h is 3 area units, and its base (one of the vertical sides) is 3 area units. The area is still 12 area units!

Exercise 7:











1 m² = 100 dm² = 10 000cm² = 1 000 000 mm².

1 m² = 0,01 dam² = 0,000 1 hm² = 0,000 001 km²

ca = 1 m² 1 a = 1 dam² 1 ha = 1 hm²

1. Complete:

360 cm² = 3,6 dm² 1 km² = 1 000 000 10 000 m² = 1 hm²

8 m² = 800 dm ² = 80 000 cm² .

145 cm² = 0,0145 m² = 14 500 mm².

0.1 dam ² = 10 m² = 0.000 01 km²

2. Complete:

15.4 m ² = 1 540 dm ² (1,000 sq ft)


154 km ² = 15,400,000,000 dm ².
0.02 cm ² = 2 mm ².


2,024 mm ² = 0.002,024 m ².
3,5 dam ² = 3 500 000 cm ².


6 325 cm ² = 0.632 5.m ².

Exercise 8:

Calculate the area of the following rectangles:

Rectangles and corrected.

Area of a rectangle in general is the product of two consecutive sides.
Note that a square is a particular rectangle so what applies above to a rectangle applies to the square. If the lengths are in cm, the area will be expressed in cm².

Area(figure1) = 8×5 = 40 cm².

Area (figure2) = 9×6,5 = 58,5 m².

Area (figure3) = 5×5 = 25 dm²

Exercise 9:

The inscription “90 g/m²” on a ream of paper means

that 1 m² of this paper weighs 90 g.

How much does a ream of 500 sheets of A4 paper weigh, in kg

(21 cm x 29.7 cm rectangle) of this paper?

A leaf has a surface of 21\times  \,29,7=623,7\,cm^2=0,06237 m²

The ream of 500 sheets represents a surface of 0,06237×500=31,185 m².

The mass of a ream is 31,185×90=2806,65 g or 2,806 kg.

Exercise 10:

A triangle of area 0.1 dam² has a side length of 800 cm.

Calculate the height relative to this side .

0,1 dam²= 10 m² and 800 cm = 8 m .

The area is such that :

\frac{base\times  \,hauteur}{2}=10

\frac{8\times  \,hauteur}{2}=10

8\times  \,hauteur=10\times  \,2

8\times  \,hauteur=20



Exercise 11:

Area of a trapezoid

A=\frac{(base+BASE)\times  \,hauteur}{2}

A=\frac{(35+54)\times  \,30}{2}


Exercise 12:

a) 2.6 m²=260 dm²=26000cm².

b) 3 cm² =0.03 dm² = 0.0003

c) 0,574 km² = 57,4 hm² = 574 000 m².

Exercise 14:

There are two times three quarters of a disc:

2\times  \,\frac{3}{4}\pi\times  \,1^2\simeq\,4,7\,cm^2

There are two rectangles:

2\times  \,1\times  \,200=400\,cm^2

There are three quarters of a strip

\frac{3}{4}\times  \,200\times  \,2\pi\times  \,1\simeq\,942,5\,cm^2



Wooden moulding

Exercise 15:

The area of the large disk is : \pi\times  \,R^2=\pi\times  \,0,8^2\simeq\,2\,cm^2

6\pi\times  \,R^2=6\pi\times  \,0,4^2\simeq\,3\,mm^2

The area of this bung is :




Exercise 16:

Calculate the area of the parallelogram MNOP represented opposite.

A=base\times  \,hauteur=ON\times  \,KM=4\times  \,3,2=12,8\,cm^2

Calculate PO (round to the nearest 0.1).

PO\times  \,3,5=12,8



Exercise 17:

The figure below is a parallelogram


Let us observe the diagram below:


Calculate its area.

In figure number 2, [AE] is the height relative to the side [DC]. And the area of ABCD is simply the product of the side length and its relative height.

Here Area = 6×3,5=21cm².

2. Calculate its perimeter.

The perimeter is the sum of the lengths of the sides, i.e. 2xAD+2xAB

Here Perimeter = 2×4+2×6 = 8+12=20 cm.

Exercise 18:

The Ariane 5 rocket is 57 m high.

a) How high is his scale model?

b) The diameter of the model is 5.7 cm. What is the real diameter of the rocket ?.

Ariane rocket

Exercise 19:

Calculate the perimeter of the following figure:

Let’s take a single parallelogram.

as it has two parallelograms on each side.

The perimeter corresponding to a parallelogram is :

4+3+(4-3)=4+3+1=8 cm

There are 9 parallelograms

The perimeter is therefore 9×8 = 72

9 parallelograms

Exercise 20:

A=\frac{base\times  \,hauteur}{2}

\frac{base\times  \,hauteur}{2}=210

\frac{21\times  \,hauteur}{2}=210

hauteur=\frac{2\times  \,210}{21}


hauteur=20 cm

A –The Intruder”:

On the grid below, we have drawn six figures.

Exercise 22:

(AD) is a median of triangle ABC.

Property : the median of a triangle divides, this triangle, in two other triangles of same area.






Triangle median

Exercise 23:

blue zone

Exercise 24:

P=2+3+2+2+3+2+2\times  \,\pi\times  \,1\simeq\,20,3cm

A=3\times  \,6-\pi\times  \,1^2\simeq\,15cm^2

area of a figure

Exercise 25:

Calculate the area of the following field in m^2.

the field area

This figure consists of a right-angled trapezoid from which a semicircle is removed and a triangle is added.

The area of this figure is given by the following numerical expression:

A=\frac{(80+50)\times  \,45}{2}+\frac{15\times  \,20}{2}-\frac{\pi\times  \,10^2}{2}

A=\frac{130\times  \,45}{2}+\frac{15\times  \,20}{2}-\frac{\pi\times  \,10^2}{2}

A=\frac{130\times  \,45}{2}+\frac{15\times  \,20}{2}-\frac{\pi\times  \,100}{2}


A=3075-50\pi is the exact value of the field area.

An approximate value is :

A\simeq\,2\,92 m^2

Exercise 27:

A soccer field represented to scale is a rectangle 23.1 cm long and 13.6 cm wide.

Exercise 28:

Performing conversions:

a. 12m² =1 200 dm² b. 1.32dm² =132 cm².

c. 4.5 cm² =0.00045 m². d. 8,552m²=0.008,552 km²
