What is the smallest, middle and largest square? (They're not drawn to scale.)?
- PuzzlingLv 74 weeks agoFavourite answer
Figure the side length of each square and then sort them.
A --> side length = 36 cm
s = 36 cm
B --> area is 36 cm²
A = s²
36 = s²
s = √36
s = 6 cm
C --> perimeter is 36 cm
P = 4s
36 = 4s
s = 36/4
s = 9 cm
The smallest is B (side length = 6 cm, perimeter = 24 cm, area = 36 cm²)
The middle is C (side length = 9 cm, perimeter = 36 cm, area = 81 cm²)
The largest is A (side length = 36 cm, perimeter = 144 cm, area = 1296 cm²)

May I know why you can upload picture when ask question?

area of 36 is 6cm perside smallest
Perameter of 36 is 9cm per side middle
length of 36 is largest 36cm per side largest

When you say smallest to largest I would assume you mean area. Or, do you mean perimeter?
Area 36² = 1296 cm², perimeter 4 x 36 = 144 cm
Area 36 cm², perimeter 4 x 6 = 24 cm
Area 9 x 9 = 81 cm², perimeter = 36 cm
so, ranking in order of size, whether by perimeter or area we have:
B smallest, C middle and A largest.

Area of square A = (36)^2 = 1296 cm^2
Area of square B = 36 cm^2
from square C
solve for is length
P = 4L
36 = 4L
solving the Area of square C
A = s^2 = 9^2 = 81 cm^2
B - smallest
C - middle
A - largest

Side length (A,B,C) = (36,6,9) cm. Squares from smallest to largest are (B,C,A).

Square A :
A = 1296 cm^2 Largest
A = 36 cm^2 Smallest
A = 81 cm^2 Middle

A: side is 36 cm
B: A = 36 cm², side = √36 = 6 cm
C: P = 36 cm, side = 36/4 = 9 cm
surely you can rank the three numbers....

Try doing the math first.
I'll give you a hint:
Square A has an area of 1296 cm^2 and a perimeter of 144 cm.
