# Mensuration Practice Problems for SBI POs and Clerks

Mensuration means measurement. It is being done in our life in many situations. For example, Length of cloth we need for stitching, the area of a wall which is being painted, perimeter of a rectangular plot to be fenced, quantity of water needed to fill the tank, etc. For these kinds of activities, we are doing measurements for further needs.

Here, we cover three areas, those are
1. Perimeter
2. Area and
3. Volume
