Q10. Perimeter of a square is 44 cm. The perimeter of a rectangle is equal to the perimeter of this square. The length of the rectangle is 5 cm more than the side of the square. The sum of are (〖in cm〗^2 ) of the square and the rectangle is
(a) 217
(b) 229
(c) 169
(d) 140

Perimeter of square = 44 cm
⇒4× side of square = 44
∴ Side of square = 11 cm
∴ Length of rectangle = 11 + 5 = 16 cm
Given that
The perimeter of a rectangle = The perimeter of square.
⇒ 2 (length + breadth) = 44
⇒ 2 (16 + breadth) = 44
