Missing lengths & compound shapes - introductory questions

Missing lengths & compound shapes - introductory questions

This is a topic that many pupils find extremely difficult to grasp. I tried to simplify it as much as possible by reducing the complexity with the following questions, focusing only on finding missing lengths given several horizontal or vertical lines.
