the drawing below measures 7.8 cm by
6.2 cm what is the perimeter in meters?
the drawing is square
Whats the answer?????
um whats the answer i really dont know
To find the perimeter of the drawing in meters, we first need to determine the perimeter in centimeters and then convert it to meters using the given scale.
Since the drawing is square, we know that all the sides are equal. Since the length is given as 7.8 cm, we can determine the perimeter by multiplying this length by 4, as there are four sides in a square:
Perimeter in centimeters = Length of one side × Number of sides
Perimeter in centimeters = 7.8 cm × 4 = 31.2 cm
Now, to convert the perimeter from centimeters to meters, we can use the given scale of 1 cm = 10 m:
Perimeter in meters = (Perimeter in centimeters ÷ 1) × (1 cm ÷ 10 m)
Perimeter in meters = 31.2 cm × (1 ÷ 10 m)
Perimeter in meters = 31.2 ÷ 10 = 3.12 meters
Therefore, the perimeter of the drawing is 3.12 meters.
