Question 1.

(i) What is the shape of the face of a cube ?

(ii) What is the shape of the face of a cuboid ?

Answer:

i) Square shape.

ii) Rectangular shape.

Question 2.

Ramesh has collected some boxes in his room. Pictures of these are given here. How many are cubes and how many are cuboids?

Answer:

Number of cubes = 3

Number of cuboids = 4

Question 3.

Ajith has made a cuboid by arranging cubes of 2 cms each. What is the length, breadth and height of the cuboid so formed ?

Answer:

Length of the first cuboid = 2 + 2 = 4 cm

breadth = 2 cm height = 2cm

Length of the second cuboid =2 + 2 + 2 = 6 cm

breadth = 2 cm height = 2 cm

Answer:

Question 2.

Use match-sticks or broom-sticks and form closed figures using :

i) Six sticks

ii) Five sticks

iii) Four sticks

iv) Three sticks

v) Two sticks

In which case was it not possible to form a polygon ? Why ?

Answer:

Observation : In the fifth case it is not possible to form a polygon.

Conclusion : We find that we could not form a polygon using two sticks.

Reason : A polygon must have at least three sides.

Question 1.

Find out the differences :

Measure the lengths of the sides and angles of (i) and (ii). What did you find ?

Answer:

i) Length of sides

AB = 3.2 cm

BC = 1. 2 cm

CD = 2 cm

ED – 2 6 cm

AE = 1. 6 cm

angles ∠A = 125°

∠B = 70°

∠C = 160°

∠D = 105°

∠E = 80°

∴ sides and angles are not equal.

The given figure is an irregular polygon (pentagon).

∴ Sides, angles are not equal.

ii) In the given figure AB = BC = CD = DE

= AE = 1.9 cm

Each angle = 108°

angles ∠A = ∠B = ∠C = ∠D = ∠E = 108°

∴ Sides, angles are equal.

The given figure is a regular pentagon.
