Mark made dinner for his family using the ingredients shown. How many 6-ounce servings did Mark make?

Weight is how heavy an object is. Units of weight include ounces, pounds, and tons.

This table shows the relative sizes of customary units of weight. 1 pound is 16 times as heavy as 1 ounce.

To convert the weight of the pasta and the meatballs to ounces, multiply each weight by 16.

Pasta:

2 × 16 = 32

= 6\(\frac{2}{5}\) ounces

Meatballs:

\(\frac{3}{5}\) × 16 = \(\frac{48}{5}\)

= 9\(\frac{3}{5}\) ounces

Add the weights of all the ingredients to find the total ounces.

**Essential Question**

How Can You Use Perimeter and Area to Solve Problems?

Answer:

The perimeter is the distance around the outside of an object. The perimeter is found by adding the lengths of all of the sides of the object together. Area is the size of the surface of the object or the total amount of space that the object covers.

**Visual Learning Bridge**

The state park shown has a perimeter of 36 miles. What is the area of the state park?

**Step 1**

Find the length of the state park.

Use the perimeter, 36 miles, and the width, 7 miles, to find the length.

Opposite sides of a rectangle are the same length, so multiply the width by 2. 7 × 2 = 14

Subtract 14 from the perimeter. 36 – 14 = 22

22 miles is the length of two sides of the park. Divide 22 by 2 to find the length of one side. 22 =2= 11

The length of the park is 11 miles.

**Step 2**

Find the area of the state park.

w = 7 miles

l = 11 miles

A = l × w

= 11 × 7

= 77

The area of the state park is 77 square miles,

Convince Me!** Make Sense and Persevere** If the area of another state park is 216 square miles, and the park has a width of 8 miles, what is the park’s length? What is the perimeter of this state park?

Answer:

Length of another state park = 27 miles.

Perimeter of this state park = 70 miles.

Explanation:

Area of the another state park = 216 square miles.

Width of another state park = 8 miles.

Length of another state park = L miles.

Area of the another state park = L × W = 216 square miles.

=> L × 8 = 216

=> L = 216 ÷ 8

=> L = 27 miles.

Perimeter of this state park = 2(L + W)

=> 2(27 + 8)

=> 2 × 35

= 70 miles.

Perimeter of the rectangle = 2(L+ W)

= 2(9 + 30)

= 2 × 39

= 78 millimeters.

**Problem Solving**

Question 10.

Greg built the picture frame shown to the right. It has a perimeter of 50\(\frac{2}{4}\) inches. How wide is the picture frame?

Answer:

Width of the picture frame = 10 inches.

Explanation:

Length of the picture frame = 15\(\frac{1}{4}\) inches.

Perimeter of the picture frame = 50\(\frac{2}{4}\) inches.

Let Width of the picture frame be w inches.

Perimeter of the picture frame = 2(L + W) = 50\(\frac{2}{4}\) inches.

=> 2(15\(\frac{1}{4}\) + w) = 50\(\frac{2}{4}\)

=> 30\(\frac{2}{4}\) + 2w = 50\(\frac{2}{4}\)

=> 2w = 50\(\frac{2}{4}\) – 30\(\frac{2}{4}\)

=> w = 20 ÷ 2

=> w = 10 inches.

Question 11.

Greg covered the back of the picture with a piece of felt. The picture is 17 inches shorter than the frame and 1\(\frac{1}{4}\) inch less in width. What is the area of the felt?

Answer:

Area of the felt = 70 inches.

Explanation:

Length of the picture frame = 15\(\frac{1}{4}\) inches.

Width of the picture frame = 10 inches.

Perimeter of the picture frame = 50\(\frac{2}{4}\) inches.

The picture is 17 inches shorter than the frame and 1\(\frac{1}{4}\) inch less in width.

=> Width of the felt = Width of the picture frame – 1\(\frac{1}{4}\) inch

=> 10 – 1\(\frac{1}{4}\)

=> 8\(\frac{3}{4}\) inches.

=> Perimeter of the picture frame – 17 inches = Perimeter of the felt.

=> 50\(\frac{2}{4}\) – 17 = Perimeter of the picture.

=> 33\(\frac{2}{4}\) inches = Perimeter of the picture.

Length of the felt = L inches.

Perimeter of the felt = 2(L + W)

33\(\frac{2}{4}\) = 2(L + 8\(\frac{3}{4}\) )

33\(\frac{2}{4}\) = 2L + 17\(\frac{2}{4}\)

33\(\frac{2}{4}\) – 17\(\frac{2}{4}\) = 2L

16 ÷ 2 = L

8 inches = L.

Area of the felt = L × W

= 8 × 8\(\frac{3}{4}\)

= 70 inches.

Question 14.

**Construct Arguments** Amy and Zach each have 24 feet of fencing for their rectangular gardens. Amy makes her fence 6 feet long. Zach makes his fence 8 feet long. Whose garden has the greater area? How much greater? Explain.

Answer:

Amy garden has the greater area than Zach garden by 4 sq ft.

Explanation:

Perimeter of the rectangular garden fencing Amy and Zach each have = 24 feet.

Length of rectangular garden fence Zach makes = 8 feet.

Length of rectangular garden fence Amy makes = 6 feet.

Width of rectangular garden fence Amy makes = W feet.

Perimeter of the rectangular garden Amy makes = 2(L + W) = 24 feet.

=> 2(6 + W) = 24

=> 12 + 2W = 24

=> 2W = 24 – 12

=> W = 12 ÷ 2

=> W = 6 feet.

Area of the rectangular garden Amy makes = Length of rectangular garden fence Amy makes × Width of rectangular garden fence Amy makes

= 6 × 6

= 36 sq ft.

Length of rectangular garden fence Zach makes = 8 feet.

Width of rectangular garden fence Zach makes = w feet.

Perimeter of the rectangular garden Zach makes = 2(L + W) = 24 feet.

=> 2(8 + w) = 24

=> 16 + 2w = 24

=> 2w = 24 – 16

=> w = 8 ÷ 2

=> w = 4 feet.

Area of the rectangular garden Zach makes = Length of rectangular garden fence Zach makes × Width of rectangular garden fence Zach makes

= 8 × 4

= 32 sq ft.

Difference in areas of Zach and Amy rectangular gardens :

Area of the rectangular garden Amy makes – Area of the rectangular garden Zach makes

= 36 sq ft – 32 sq ft

= 4 sq ft.

Let the Length of the table be L inches.

=>L = 5W

Width of the table be W inches.

Area of the table runner = Length of the table × Width of the table = 80 square inches.

=> 5W × W = 80

=> 2W = 80 ÷ 5

=> 2W = 16

=> W = 16 ÷ 2

=> W = 8 inches.

Length of the table = 5W = 5 × 8 = 40 inches.

Mike uses 24 meters of fence to enclose a rectangular garden. The length of the garden is 10 meters. What is the width? Use at least 3 terms from the Word List to explain.

Answer:

Width of the garden = 2 meters.

Explanation:

Length of fence to enclose a rectangular garden Mike uses = 24 meters.

Perimeter of the rectangular garden Mike uses = 24 meters.

Length of the garden =10 meters.

Width of the garden = W meters.

Formula:

Perimeter of the rectangular garden = 2(L + W) = 24 meters.

The perimeter of Ted’s pool is 16 yards. The pool is 3 yards wide. He has 150-square feet of plastic. Does Ted have enough plastic to cover the pool?

Use the formula for perimeter to find the length. Substitute the numbers you know.

Perimeter = (2 × l) + (2 × w)

16 = (2 × l) + (2 × 3)

l = 5

The length of the pool is 5 yards.

3 yards wide × 3 = 9 feet wide

5 yards long × 3 = 15 feet long

Find the area of the pool.

A = 15 × 9

A = 135

The area of the pool is 135 square feet. 135 < 150, so Ted has enough plastic to cover the pool.

Part B

What is the area of Kasia’s field? Complete the table to convert the length to feet. Be sure to use the correct units on your answer. Explain.

Answer:

Area of Kasia’s field = 308 square yards.

Explanation:

Length of Kasia’s field = 14\(\frac{2}{3}\) yards.

Width of Kasia’s field = W yards.

Perimeter of Kasia’s field = 71\(\frac{1}{3}\) yards.

Perimeter of Kasia’s field = 2(L + W) = 71\(\frac{1}{3}\) yards.

=> 2 (14\(\frac{2}{3}\) + W) = 71\(\frac{1}{3}\)

=> 28\(\frac{1}{3}\) + 2W = 71\(\frac{1}{3}\)

=> 2W = 71\(\frac{1}{3}\) – 29\(\frac{1}{3}\)

=> W = 42 ÷ 2

=> W = 21 yards.

Area of Kasia’s field = L × W

= 14\(\frac{2}{3}\) × 21

= 308 square yards.

Conversion: 1 yard = 3 feet.

10 yards = 3 × 10 = 30 feet.

20 yards = 3 × 20 = 60 feet.

Quantity of watermelon servings = 288 ounces.

Conversion: 1 pound = 16 ounces.

=> 20 pounds = 16 × 20 = 320 ounces.

Quantity of rind = Quantity of watermelon – Quantity of watermelon servings

= 320 – 288

= 32 ounces.

Conversion: 1 pound = 16 ounces.

=> 32 ounces = 1 × 32 ÷ 16

= 32 ÷ 16 = 2 pounds.

Part B

How many cups of fruit does Kasia get from a 20-pound watermelon? Explain. Show your computations. Do not include the weight of the rind.

Answer:

Number of cups of fruit does Kasia get from a 20-pound watermelon = 40\(\frac{2}{4}\) cups.
