MEAP Preparation - Grade 4 Mathematics
2.7 Perimeter, Area and Volume Facts

Q 1: The formula for area of a rectangle is
length x width
length + width
length - width

Q 2: The length and width of a rectangle are called its
line segment

Q 3: You always measure area in square units. Example: US Customary system : square mile, square yard, square foot, square inch. Metric units: square kilometer, square centimeter, square meter, square millimeter

Q 4: The formula for perimeter of a rectangle is
P = 2 x (l + w)
P = l x w
P = l + w

Q 5: Perimeter of a rectangle P = 2 x (l + w) can also be written as
P = w + 2l
P = l + l + w + w
P = l + 2w

Q 6: The volume of a figure is how much space it occupies

Q 7: Volume of a figure is measured in cubic units. Example 60 cubic cm

Q 8: The perimeter is
how much space it occupies
the distance around the figure
the space inside a figure
