A rectangle is a four-sided figure with two long sides and two short sides. The two long sides are the length of the rectangle. The two short sides are the width of the rectangle.
You can set up a proportion and solve for the unknown side. Say that your rectangle has a short side that measures 4. The long side, unknown at this time, is x. The scale factor of the long side to the short side is 2/1 or 2:1. That would mean that the ratio of the actual side measurements, long side to short side, would be x/4. Set up a proportion where that ratio and the scale factor are equal to each other. Cross multiply and solve for x. x/4 = 2/1 x = 8 The long side of the rectangle would measure 8.
Length of a long side x length of a short side = area
You find the scale factor on a triangle by dividing the short side by the long side.
A square has 4 equal sides. A rectangle has 2 short sides of equal length and 2 long sides of equal length
A golden rectangle is a rectangle where the ratio of the length of the short side to the length of the long side is proportional to the ratio of the length of the long side to the length of the short side plus the length of the long side. It is said to have the "most pleasing" shape or proportion of any rectangle. The math is like this, with the short side = s and the long side = l : s/l = l/s+l Links can be found below to check facts and learn more. In ratio terms, the Golden Rectangle has a width/height ratio of 1.618/1.
The area of a rectangle is the long side length multiplied by the short side length. In this case 10m x 4.5m = 45 square metres
Because the sides of the rectangle are short, which make it weak. A square is strong because all sides are the same length. Do you understand?
For a start at this question, find out how wide this rectangle must be. area (250) = length (25) x width (???) The area of a rectangle is its length times its width. We should divide the area by the length (25) to get the width. The answer is 10. Then we know that each long side is 25 and each short side is 10. We know that in a rectangle, the long sides are the same length and the short sides are the same width. In order to get the perimeter, we add 25 and 25 and 10 and 10. We get 70. So the perimeter is 70.
In a rectangle, opposite sides are of equal length. So basically, the two shorter sides are the same length as each other, and the two bigger sides are equal length to each other. However, the short and long sides aren't equal.
1 billion short scale = 109 or 1 billion long scale 1012 1 billion x 1 billion = short scale 1018 1 billion x 1 billion = long scale 1024 109 = 1 billion short scale and 1 milliard long scale. 1012 = 1 trillion short scale and 1billion long scale. 1015 = 1 quadrillion short scale and 1 billiard long scale. 1018 = 1 quintillion short scale and 1 trillion long scale. 1024 = 1 quadrillion short scale and 1 septillion long scale.
