 Rectangles/497975: 5 cm more than the length of rectangle is less than equal to 44 cm greater than or equal to 20 cm. The width of the same rectangle is 10 cm. What is the positive difference between the maximum possible are of rectangle and least possible area of rectangle1 solutions Answer 336978 by cleomenius(959)   on 2011-09-15 10:59:09 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Form the way I interpret this question, the length will range from 39 cm to 15 cm. The width is constant at 10 cm. The maximum area will be 39 * 10 or 390 cm. The minimum area will be 15 * 10 cm or 150 cm. So the difference will be 390 - 150 or 240 cm. Cleomenius.
 Rectangles/497995: Calculate the perimeter of a rectangle with a length of 15.5 cm and a width of 38.0 mm1 solutions Answer 336976 by cleomenius(959)   on 2011-09-15 10:51:23 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!2(15.5) = 30 cm 2(38) = 76 cm 30 + 76 = 106 cm Cleomenius
 Rectangles/498016: A box with a square base and no top is to be made from a square piece of cardboard by cutting 4 inch squares from each corner and folding up the sides. The box is to hold 100 in cubed. How big a piece of cardboard is needed.1 solutions Answer 336973 by cleomenius(959)   on 2011-09-15 10:44:17 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The volume will be L*W*H We are cutting 4 inches from each corner, so the length and width will each be x - 8. The height will be 4. 100 = 4* (x - 8)* (x - 8) 25 = (x - 8)^2 5 = x - 8 13 inches= x. The piece of cardboard needed will be 13 by 13 inches. Cleomenius.
