## FAQs on Understanding: Perimeter of a Rectangle Video Lecture - Mathematics (Maths) Class 6

 1. What is the formula for calculating the perimeter of a rectangle?
Ans. The formula for calculating the perimeter of a rectangle is P = 2(l + b), where P represents the perimeter, l represents the length, and b represents the breadth of the rectangle.
 2. How do I find the length of a rectangle if the perimeter and breadth are given?
Ans. To find the length of a rectangle when the perimeter and breadth are given, you can use the formula: Length = Perimeter/2 - Breadth.
 3. Can the perimeter of a rectangle be negative?
Ans. No, the perimeter of a rectangle cannot be negative. Perimeter is a measure of the distance around the shape, and distance cannot be negative.
 4. If the length and breadth of a rectangle are the same, what is the shape called?
Ans. If the length and breadth of a rectangle are the same, the shape is called a square. A square is a special type of rectangle where all sides are equal.
 5. How does the perimeter of a rectangle change if its length is doubled?
Ans. If the length of a rectangle is doubled, the perimeter will also be doubled. The perimeter of a rectangle is directly proportional to its length, so any change in the length will result in the same proportional change in the perimeter.
