Can you find:

1/3 of 33?

7/8 of 96?

6/37 of 185?

10 in 10

  1. 89843 + 39393 =
  2. 200019 – 48983 =
  3. 488 x 23 =
  4. 338838 / 25 =
  5. 8/9 of 108 =
  6. 0.28 = (fraction)
  7. 0.4 =
  8. 0.22 =
  9. 0.383 =
  10. 0.4448 =

I can find the perimeter and area of regular and compound shapes

 

Perimeter

The perimeter of a shape is the total distance around its edge. To calculate the perimeter of a shape, you just have to add up the lengths of all of its sides

 

Area

Area is the term used to define the amount of space taken up by a 2D shape or surface. We measure area in square units : cm² or m². Area is calculated by multiplying the length of a shape by its width.

 

Composite/compound shapes

To calculate the area of a composite shape you must divide the shape into rectangles, triangles or other shapes you can find the area of and then add the areas back together.

 

The work that needs completing is attached as a PDF below :)
