A rectangular picture 6cm by 8cm is enclosed by a frame $$\frac{1}{2}$$cm wide. Calculate the area of the frame

• A. 15sq.cm
• B. 20sq.cm
• C. 13sq.cm
• D. 16sq.cm
• E. 17sq.cm
##### Explanation

Area of the rectangular picture = L x B = 8 x 6

= 48 sq.cm.

Area of the whole surface (which is gotten by adding $$\frac{1}{2}$$ on every side to the original picture size) is 9 x 7 = 63 sq. cm

area of the frame is 63 - 48

= 15 sq. cm
