Q.11 A piece of strings is 30 cm long. What will be the length of each side if the string is used to form:
(a) a square?
(b) an equilateral triangle?
(c) a regular hexagon?


Answer :

(a) Perimeter of square = 30 cm
4 × side = 30
Side = \(\frac{30}{4} \)
Side = 7.5 cm
(b) Perimeter of an equilateral triangle = 30 cm
3 × side = 30
Side = \(\frac{30}{10} \)
Side = 10 cm
(c) Perimeter of a regular hexagon = 30 cm
6 × side = 30
Side = \(\frac{30}{6} \)
Side = 5 cm
