These 12 problems are based on “real world” mathematic scenarios involving area and perimeter. Some of the problems are single step, while others require multi-steps to solve.
Here are some examples of problems included in this collection:
Tracy is planting a garden. The garden has a total area of 40 square feet. If the length of the garden is 5 feet, what is the width?
