Q:
# A checkers board is 8 squares long and 8 squares wide. The area of each square is 14 square centimeters. Estimate the perimeter of the checkers board to the nearest tenth of a centimeter.

Accepted Solution

A:

Area of each square = 14 sq. cm.

length of each square = sqrt(14) = 3.7 cm

length of one side = 8 x 3.7 = 29.6 cm

Perimeter of the checker board = 4 x 29.6 = 118.4 cm

length of each square = sqrt(14) = 3.7 cm

length of one side = 8 x 3.7 = 29.6 cm

Perimeter of the checker board = 4 x 29.6 = 118.4 cm
