There are a square and a circle that passes through two adjacent vertices of the square (end points of side a) and the center of the opposite side (c). Which of the plane shape has a larger perimeter? - Flakes

We describe a circle of the square, and we describe a semicircle above each side of the square. This created 4 flakes. Which is bigger: the area of the central square, or the area of four flakes? - Wallpaper

3750 cm square of wallpaper is needed to glue a cube-shaped box. Can Dad cut out the whole necessary piece of wallpaper as a whole if he has a roll of wallpaper 50 cm wide? - Two 2D shapes

Decide which shapes have more area: (a) a square of 8cm side; or (b) two rectangles with sides 5cm and 15cm? Write result as 1 or 2 (rectangles) - Foot area

Which animal will leave deeper footstep: an elephant weighing 5 tons with a total foot area of 0.5 square meters, or a gazelle weighing 10 kg and a foot area of 50 cm square? - Precious metals

In 2006-2009, the value of precious metals changed rapidly. The data in the following table represent the total rate of return (in percentage) for platinum, gold, and silver from 2006 through 2009: Year Platinum Gold Silver 2009 62.7 25.0 56.8 2008 -41.3 - Paper box

Calculate whether 11 dm² of paper is sufficient for gluing a box without a lid with bottom dimensions of 2 dm and 15 cm and 12 cm high. Write result as: 0 = No, 1 = Yes - Playstation

Anton wants to cover the cover for the game on the Playstation with original paper. The cover has the shape of a block measuring 13 cm × 17 cm × 15 cm. Anton bought 0.35 m² of silver paper. Will the paper be enough to cover the cover? (1 = Yes, 0 = No) - Variability
