Question : Leigh will use 16 connecting cubes to make a model of a playground. The model will be in the shape of a rectangle and will have a height of one cube. in how many different ways can Leigh make the model of the playground. Answer : In order to make rectangle of hieght , we have to consider all the factorof 16 but not the one in which both the factor are equal , because in that case it…

ll be a square. Factor of 16 are : (16,1) ,(1,16) ,(2,8) , (8,2) , (4,4) Hence, there are total 5 facors of 16 but in that 5 factor , there is one factor in whichboth the factor are equal i.e (4,4) So, there are 4 ways in whichLeigh make the model of the playground.
