To calculate the possible number of squares, use the simple logic of total area/required area.

In this case, total area = 2 metres * 2 metres (200 cm * 200 cm) = 40000 cm
Required area of the rectangle = 2cm *10cm = 20 cm

Possible number of squares = 40000/20 = 2000

An easy way to look at it is how many squares of a specific dimension will "fit" given the dimensions.

Solution


Given:
    • Dimensions of a sheet of paper = 2m x 2m
    • This is cut into 2cm x 10cm rectangles

To find:
    • The maximum number of rectangles that can be cut from the sheet of paper

Approach and Working:
    • Area of the sheet of paper = \(2m * 2m = 4 * 10^4 cm^2\)
    • Area of a piece of rectangular paper =\(2 * 10 = 20 cm^2\)

Thus, total number of rectangular pieces that can be cut = 4 * 10^4/20 = 2000

Hence, the correct answer is Option B

Answer: B
