**Exercise 20(A)**

**1. Find the area of a triangle whose sides are 18 cm, 24 cm and 30 cm.**

**Answer**Since the sides of the triangle are 18 cm, 24 cm and 30 cm respectively.

s = 18+24+30218+24+302 = 36

Hence the area of the triangle is

= 216 sq. cm

Again,

A =1/2 base x height

⇒ 216 = 1/2 base ×height

⇒ 216 = 1/2 ×30×h

⇒ h = 14.4 cm

**2. The length of the sides of a triangle are in the ratio 3: 4: 5. Find the area of the triangle if its perimeter is 144 cm.**

**Answer**Let the sides of the triangle are

a = 3x

b = 4x

c = 5x

Given that the perimeter is 144 cm.

hence

⇒ 3x + 4x + 5x =144

⇒ x = 144/12

s = (a+ b+ c)/2

⇒ 12x/2

⇒ 6x =72

⇒ x = 12

The sides are a=36 cm, b=48 cm and c=60 cm

Area of the triangle is

= 864 sq cm

**3. ABC is a triangle in which AB = AC = 4 cm and A = 90 ^{o}. Calculate:**

**(i) The area of ABC,**

**(ii) The length of perpendicular from A to BC.**

**Answer **

**(i) **Area of the triangle is given by

A = (1/2)×AB×AC

= (1/2)×4×4

= 8 sq.cm

**(ii) **Again area of the triangle

A = (1/2)×BC× h

**4. The area of an equilateral triangle is IMAGE sq. cm. Find its perimeter.**

**Answer**

Area of an equilateral triangle is given by

**5. Find the area of an isosceles triangle with perimeter is 36 cm and base is 16 cm.**

**Answer**

Since the perimeter of the isosceles triangle is 36cm and base is 16cm. hence the length of each of equal sides are

(36-16)/2 = 10 cm

Here,

It is given that

a = equal sides = 10cm

b = base = 16cm

Let ‘h’ be the altitude of the isosceles triangle.

Since the altitude from the vertex bisects the base perpendicularly, we can apply Pythagoras Theorem.

Thus we have,

**6. The base of an isosceles triangle is 24 cm and its area is 192 sq. cm. Find its perimeter.**

**Answer**

It is given that

Area = 192 sq. cm

base = 24cm

Knowing the length of equal side, a , and base, b, of an isosceles triangle,

the area can be calculated using the formula,

**7. The given figure shows a right-angled triangle ABC and an equilateral triangle BCD. Find the area of the shaded portion.**

**Answer**

From ,

In △ABC,

Area of △ABC

△ABC = (1/2)×8√192

= 4√192

Area of △BCD

△BCD = (√3/4)×8^{2}

= 16√3

Now

△ABD = △ABC - △BDC

= 4√192 - 16√3

= 32√3 - 16√3

= 16√3 sq.cm

**8. Find the are****a and the perimeter of quadrilateral ABCD, given below; if AB = 8 cm, AD = 10 cm, BD = 12 cm, DC = 13 cm and DBC = 90 ^{o}**

**Answer**

Given , AB = 8 cm, AD = 10 cm, BD = 12 cm, DC = 13 cm and DBC = 90^{o}

Area of △ABD

Area of △DBC

△DBC = (1/2)×12×5 = 30

Now,

Area of ABCD = area of △ABD + area of △BDC

= 39.7 +30

= 69.7 sq.cm

**9. The base of a triangular field is three times its height. If the cost of cultivating the field at 36.72 per 100 m ^{2} is 49,572; find its base and height.**

**Answer **

Area of the rectangular field = 49572/36.72 = 135000

Let the height of the triangle be x

135000 = 1/2× x ×3x

⇒ x^{2} = 90000

⇒ x = 300

Height = 300 m

Base = 900 m

**10. The sides of a triangular field are in the ratio 5 : 3 : 4 and its perimeter is 180 m. Find:**

**(i) its area.**

**(ii) altitude of the triangle corresponding to its largest side.**

**(iii) the cost of leveling the field at the rate of Rs. 10 per square metre.**

**Answer**

Thus, we have, 5x + 4x + 3x = 180

⇒ 12x = 180

⇒ x = 180/12

⇒ x =15

Thus, the sides are 5×15, 3×15 and 4×15.

That is the sides are 75m, 45m and 60m.

Since the sides are in the ratio, 5:3:5, it is a Pythagorean triplet.

Therefore, the triangle is a right angled triangle.

Area of a right angled triangle = (1/2)×base×altitude

⇒ (1/2)×45×60

⇒ 45 ×30 = 1350 m

^{2}

**(ii)** Consider the following figure.

In the above figure,

The largest side is AC = 75m.

The altitude corresponding to AC is BD.

We need to find the value of BD.

Now consider the triangles △BCD and △BAD.

we have,

∠B =∠B

**[common]**

BD = BD

**[common]**

∠D = ∠D = 90°

Similar triangles have similar proportionality.

Thus, we have,

CD/BD = BD/AD

⇒ BD

^{2}= AD × CD

**...(1)**

From subpart (i), the sides of the triangle are AC = 75m, AB = 60m and BC =45 m

Let AD = x m

Thus applying Pythagoras theorem, from right triangle △BCD, we have

45

^{2}= (75-x)

^{2}+ BD

^{2}

⇒ BD

^{2}= 45

^{2}-(75-x)

^{2}

⇒ BD

^{2}= 2025 - (5625 +x

^{2}- 150x)

⇒ BD

^{2}= 2025 - 5625 - x

^{2}+ 150x

⇒ BD

^{2}= -3600 - x

^{2}+ 150x

**...(2)**

Now applying Pythagoras Theorem, from right triangle △ABD, we have

= 60

^{2}= x

^{2}+ BD

^{2}

⇒ BD

^{2}= 60

^{2}- x

^{2}

⇒ BD

^{2}= 3600 - x

^{2}

**...(3)**

From equations (2) and (3), we have,

-3600 - x

^{2}+ 150x = 3600 -x

^{2}

⇒ 150x = 3600 + 3600

⇒ 150x = 7200

⇒ x = 7200/150

⇒ x = 48

Thus, AD = 48 and CD = 75 - 48 = 27

Substituting the values AD = 48m

and CD = 27 m in equation (1) , we have

BD

^{2}= 48×27

⇒ BD

^{2}= 1296

⇒ BD = 36m

The area of the triangular field from subpart (i) is 1350 m

^{2}.

The cost of levelling the field is Rs. 10 per square metre.

Thus, the total cost of levelling the field = 1350×10 = Rs. 13,500.

**11. Each of equal sides of an isosceles triangle is 4 cm greater than its height. IF the base of the triangle is 24 cm; calculate the perimeter and the area of the triangle.**

**Answer **

Let the height of the triangle be x cm.

Equal sides are (x+4) cm.

According to Pythagoras theorem,

(x+4)^{2} = x^{2} + 12^{2}

⇒ 8x = 128

⇒ x = 16cm

Hence, perimeter = 20+20+24 = 64cm

Area of the isosceles triangle is given by

Here a = 20cm

b = 24cm

Hence,

**12. Calculate the area and the height of an equilateral triangle whose perimeter is 60 cm.**

**Answer **

Each side of the triangle is 60/3 = 20 cm

Hence the area of the equilateral triangle is given by

A = (√3/4) ×20^{2}

= 100√3

= 173.2sq.cm

⇒ h = 17.32cm.

**13. In triangle ABC; angle A = 90 ^{o}, side AB = x cm, AC = (x + 5) cm and area = 150 cm^{2}. Find the sides of the triangle.**

**Answer **

The area of the triangle is given as 150sq.cm

(1/2)×x×(x+5)= 150

⇒ x^{2} + 5x - 300 = 0

⇒ (x+20)(x-15) = 0

⇒ x = 15

Hence, AB = 15cm, AC = 20cm and

**14. If the difference between the sides of a right angled triangle is 3 cm and its area is 54 cm ^{2}; find its perimeter.**

**Answer **

Let the two sides be x cm and (x-3) cm.

Now

(1/2)×x×(x-3) = 54

⇒ x^{2} - 3x - 108 = 0

⇒ (x-12)(x+9) = 0

⇒ x = 12cm

Hence the sides are 12cm, 9cm

The required perimeter is 12+9+15=36cm.

**15. AD is altitude of an isosceles triangle ABC in which AB = AC = 30 cm and BC = 36 cm. A point O is marked on AD in such a way that BOC = 90 ^{o}. Find the area of quadrilateral ABOC.**

**Answer**

∠BOD = ∠COD = 45°

Hence, ∠OBD = 45° and OD = BD = 18cm

Now,

Area of △BOC = (1/2)×36×18

= 324

Area of ABOC = Area of △ABC - Area of △BOC

= 432 - 324

= 108 sq.cm

**Exercise 20(B)**

**1. Find the area of a quadrilateral one of whose diagonals is 30 cm long and the perpendiculars from the other two vertices are 19 cm and 11 cm respectively.**

**Answer **

Area = (1/2)× one diagonal × sum of the lengths of the perpendiculars draw from it on the remaining two vertices.

= (1/2)×30×(11+19)

= 450 sq.cm

**2. The diagonals of a quadrilateral are 16 cm and 13 cm. If they intersect each other at right angles; find the area of the quadrilateral.**

= (1/2)×16×13

= 104cm

^{2}

**3. Calculate the area of quadrilateral ABCD, in which ABD = 90 ^{o}, triangle BCD is an equilateral triangle of side 24 cm and AD = 26 cm.**

**Answer**

Consider the figure:

From the right triangle *ABD* we have

= 2(5)

= 10

The area of right triangle

*ABD*will be:

△ABD = (1/2)(AB)(BD)

= (1/2)×10×24

= 120

Again from the equilateral triangle

*BCD*we have CP ⊥ BD

Therefore, the area of the triangle *BCD* will be:

△BCD = (1/2)(BD)(PC)

= (1/2)×24×(12√3)

= 144√3

Hence, the area of the quadrilateral will be:

△ABD + △BCD = 120+ 144√3

= 369.41 cm^{2}

**4. Calculate the area of quadrilateral ABCD in which AB = 32 cm, AD = 24 cm A = 90 ^{o} and BC = CD = 52 cm.**

**Answer**

The figure can be drawn as follows:

= 8×5

= 40

Now BCD is an isosceles triangle and BP is perpendicular to BD, therefore

DP = (1/2)×BD

= (1/2)×40

= 20

From the right triangle DPC we have

= 960

Hence the area of the quadrilateral will be :

△ABD + △DPC = 960 + 384

= 1344 cm

^{2}

**5. The perimeter of a rectangular field is 3 / 5 km. If the length of the field is twice its width; find the area of the rectangle in sq. metres.**

**Answer**

Let the width be x and length 2x km.

Hence,

2(x+2x) = 3/5

⇒ x = 1/10 km = 100m

Hence, the width is 100m and length is 200m

The required area is given by

A = length ×width

= 100×200

= 20,000 sq.m

**6. A rectangular plot 85 m long and 60 m broad is to be covered with grass leaving 5 m all around. Find the area to be laid with grass.**

**Answer **

Length of the laid with grass=85-5-5=75m

Width of the laid with grass=60-5-5=50m

Hence area of the laid with grass is given by

A = 75×50 = 3750 sq. m

**7. The length and the breadth of a rectangle are 6 cm and 4 cm respectively. Find the height of a triangle whose base is 6 cm and area is 3 times that of the rectangle.**

**Answer **

Area of the rectangle is given by

A = l ×b

= 6×4

= 24 sq. m

Let h be the height of the triangle ,then

(1/2)×base ×h = 3A

⇒ (1/2)×6×h = 3×24

⇒ h = 24cm

**8. How many tiles, each of area 400 cm ^{2}, will be needed to pave a footpath which is 2 m wide and surrounds a grass plot 25 m long and 13 m wide?**

**Solution**

Consider the following figure.

= Area ABPQ + Area TUDC + Area A’PUD’ + Area QB’C’T

= 2Area ABPQ + 2Area QB’C’T

= 2(Area ABPQ +Area QB’C’T)

Area of the footpath is given by

A = 2×(25+25+17+17)

= 168 sq. m

= 1680000 sq.cm

Hence number of tiles required = 1680000/400 = 4200.

**9. The cost of enclosing a rectangular garden with a fence all round, at the rate of 75 paise per metre, is Rs. 300. If the length of the garden is 120 metres, find the area of the field in square metres.**

**Answer**

Perimeter of the garden

s = 300/0.75

= 400 sq.m

Again, length of the garden is given to be 120 m. hence breadth of the garden b is given by

2(l+ b) = S

⇒ 2(120 + b) = 400

⇒ b =80 m

Hence, area of the field

A = 120×80

= 9600 sq. m

**10. The width of a rectangular room is 4 / 7 of its length, x, and its perimeter is y. Write an equation connecting x and y. Find the length of the room when the perimeter is 4400 cm.**

**Answer**

Length of the rectangle = x

Width of the rectangle = 4/7 x

Hence its perimeter is given by2[x + (4/7)x] = y

⇒ 2(11x/7) = y

⇒ 22x/7 = y

Again it is given that the perimeter is 4400cm.

Hence

22x/7 = 4400

⇒ x = 1400

**11. The length of a rectangular verandah is 3 m more than its breadth. The numerical value of its area is equal to the numerical value of its perimeter.**

**(i) Taking x as the breadth of the verandah, write an equation in x that represents the above statement.**

**(ii) Solve the equation obtained in (i) above and hence find the dimensions of the verandah.**

**Answer**

**(i) **Breadth of the verandah=x

Length of the verandah=x+3

According to the question

2(x+ (x+3))= x (x+3)

⇒ 4x + 6 = x^{2} + 3x

⇒ x^{2} - x - 6 = 0

**(ii) **From the above equation

x^{2} - x -6= 0

⇒ (x-3)(x+2) = 0

⇒ x= 3

Hence,

breadth=3m

Length =3+3=6m

**12. The diagram, given below, shows two paths drawn inside a rectangular field 80 m long and 45 m wide. The widths of the two paths are 8 m and 15 m as shown. Find the area of the shaded portion.**

**Answer**

Consider the following figure.

Thus, the area of the shaded portion

= Area(ABCD) + Area(EFGH) – Area(IJKL)** …(1)**

Dimensions of ABCD: 45 m ×15m

Thus, the area of ABCD = 45×15 = 675 m^{2}

Dimensions of EFGH : 80m ×8m

Thus, the area of EFGH = 80×8 = 640 m^{2}

Dimensions of IJKL : 15 m ×8m

Thus, the area of IJKL = 80×8 = 120 m^{2}

Therefore, from equation (1),

The area of the shaded portion = 675 + 640 - 120 = 1195 m^{2} .

**13. The rate for a 1.20 m wide carpet is Rs. 40 per metre; find the cost of covering a hall 45 m long and 32 m wide with this ×carpet. Also, find the cost of carpeting the same hall if the carpet, 80 wide, is at Rs. 25. Per metre.**

**Answer **

First we have to calculate the area of the hall.

Area = 45×32

= 1440 m^{2}

cost = (40/1.20)×1440

= 48, 000

We need to find the cost of carpeting of 80 cm = 0.8 m wide carpet, if the rate of carpeting is Rs. 25. Per metre.

Then

Cost = (25/0.8)×1440 = Rs. 45,000

**14. Find the area and perimeter of a square plot of land, the length of whose diagonal is 15 metres. Given your answer correct to 2 places of decimals.**

**Answer **

Let a be the length of each side of the square.

Hence

2a^{2} = (diagonal)^{2}

⇒ a^{2} = 15^{2}/2

⇒ a^{2} = 112.5

⇒ a = 10.60

Hence,

Area = a^{2}

= 112.5 sq.m

And

**15. The shaded region of the given diagram represents the lawn in the form of a house. On the three sides of the lawn there are flowerbeds having a uniform width of 2 m.**

**(i) Find the length and the breadth of the lawn.**

**(ii) Hence, or otherwise, find the area of the flower-beds.**

**Answer **

Consider the following figure.

**(i) **The length of the lawn = 30 – 2 – 2 = 26 m

The breadth of the lawn = 12 – 2 = 10 m

**(ii) **The orange shaded area in the figure is the required area.

Area of the flower bed is calculated as follows:

A = 10×2+10×2+30×2

= 20+20+60 = 100 sq. m

**16. A floor which measures 15 m 8 m is to be laid with tiles measuring 50 m 25 cm. Find the number of tiles required.**

**Further, if a carpet is laid on the floor so that a space of 1 m exists between its edges and the edges of the floor, what fraction of the floor is uncovered?**

**Answer **

Area of the floor = 15×8 =120sq.m

Area of one tiles = 0.50×0.25 = 0.125 sq. m

Number of tiles required

n = (Area of floor)/(Area of tiles)

= 120/0.125

= 960

Area of carpet uncovered = 2(1×15 + 1×6)= 42 sq.m

Fraction of floor uncovered= 42/120 = 7/20

**17. Two adjacent sides of parallelogram are 24 cm and 18 cm. If the distance between the longer sides is 12 cm; find the distance between the shorter sides.**

**Solution**

We know that,

Area = Base × Height

= 24×12

⇒ 18×h = 24×12

⇒ h = (24×12)/18

⇒ h = 16

**18. Two adjacent sides of parallelogram are 28cm and 26cm. If one diagonal of it is 30cm long : Find the area of the parallelogram. Also, find the distance between its shorter sides.**

**Solution **

At first we have to calculate the area of the triangle having sides, 28cm, 26cm and 30cm.

Let the area be S.

S = (28+26+ 30)/2

= 84/2

= 42 cm

By Heron’s Formula,

Area of a Parallelogram = 2 × Area of a triangle

= 2 × 336

= 672 cm^{2}

We know that,

Area of a parallelogram = Height × Base

⇒ 672 = Height × 26

⇒ Height = 25.84 cm

∴ the distance between its shorter sides is 25.84 cm.

**19. The area of a rhombus is 216 sq. cm. If its one diagonals is 24 cm; find:**

**(i) Length of its other diagonal,**

**(ii) Length of its side,**

**(iii) Perimeter of the rhombus.**

**Answer **

**(i) **We know that

Area of Rhombus = (1/2)×AC ×BD

Here,

A = 216sq.cm

AC = 24cm

BD = ?

Now

A = (1/2)×AC ×BD

⇒ 216 = (1/2)×24×BD

⇒ BD = 18cm

**(ii)** Let a be the length of each side of the rhombus.

a^{2} = (AC/2)^{2} + (BD/2)^{2}

⇒ a^{2} = 12^{2} + 9^{2}

⇒ a^{2} = 225

⇒ a = 15cm

**(iii)** Perimeter of the rhombus=4a=60cm.

**20. The perimeter of a rhombus is 52 cm. If one diagonal is 24 cm; find:**

**(i) The length of its other diagonal,**

**(ii) Its area.**

**Answer **

Let a be the length of each side of the rhombus.

4a = perimeter

⇒ 4a = 52

⇒ a = 13cm

**(i) **It is given that,

AC=24cm

We have to find BD.

Now

a^{2} = (AC/2)^{2} + (BD/2)^{2}

⇒ 13^{2} = 12^{2} + (BD/2)^{2}

⇒ (BD/2)^{2} = 5^{2}

⇒ BD = 10cm

Hence, the other diagonal is 10cm.

**(ii) **Area of the rhombus = (1/2)×AC×BD

= (1/2)×24×10

= 120 sq.cm

**21. The perimeter of a rhombus is 46 cm. If the height of the rhombus is 8 cm; find its area.**

**Answer **

Let a be the length of each side of the rhombus.

4a = perimeter

⇒ 4a = 46

⇒ a = 11.5cm

We know that,

Area = Base ×Height

= 11.5×8

= 92 sq.cm

**22. The figure given below shows the cross-section of a concrete structure. Calculate the area of cross-section if AB = 1.8 cm, CD = 0.6 m, DE = 0.8 m, EF = 0.3 m and AF = 1.2 m.**

**Answer**

The diagram is redrawn as follows:

Here

AF = 1.2m, EF=0.3m, DC=0.6m, BK=1.8-0.6-0.3=0.9m

Hence,

Area of ABCDEF = Area of AHEF + Area of HKCD + Î”KBC

= 1.2×0.3 + 2×0.6 + (1/2)×2×0.9

= 2.46 sq. m

**23. Calculate the area of the figure given below: which is not drawn scale.**

**Answer **

Here we found two geometrical figure, one is a triangle and other is the trapezium.

Now

Area of the triangle = (1/2)×12×25

= 150 sq. m

Hence, area of the whole figure=150+240=630sq.m

**24. The following diagram shows a pentagonal field ABCDE in which the lengths of AF, FG, GH and HD are 50 m, 40 m, 15 m and 25 m respectively; and the lengths of perpendiculars BF, CH and EG are 50 m, 25 m ad 60 m respectively. Determine the area of the field.**

**Answer**

We can divide the field into three triangles and one trapezium.

Let A,B,C be the three triangular region and D be the trapezoidal region.

Now

Area of A = (1/2)×AD×GE

= (1/2)×(50+40+15+25)×60

= 3900 sq. m

Area of B = (1/2)×AF×BF

= (1/2)×50×50

= 1250 sq. m

Area of B = (1/2)×HD ×CH

= (1/2)×25×25

= 312.5 sq. m

Area of D = (1/2)×(BF + CH)×(FG + GH)

= (1/2)×(50+25)×(40+15)

= (1/2)×75×55

= 2062.5 sq. m

Area of the figure=Area of A+ Area of B+ Area of C+ Area of D

= 3900 + 1250 + 312.5 + 2062.5

= 7525 sq. m

**25. A foot path of uniform width runs all around the outside of a rectangular field 30 m long and 24 m wide. If the path occupies an area of 360 m ^{2}, find its width.**

**Answer **

Let x be the width of the footpath.

Then

Area of footpath = 2×(30+24)x + 4x^{2} .

= 4x^{2} + 108x

Again it is given that area of the footpath is 360sq.m.

Hence,

4x^{2} + 108x = 360

⇒ x^{2} + 27x - 90 = 0

⇒ (x-3)(x+30) = 0

⇒ x = 3

Hence, width of the footpath is 3m.

**26. A wire when bent in the form of a square encloses an area of 484 m ^{2}. Find the largest area enclosed by the same wire when bent to from:**

**(i) An equilateral triangle.**

**(ii) A rectangle of length 16 m.**

**Answer **

Area of the square is 484.

Let a be the length of each side of the square.

Now

a^{2} = 484

⇒ a = 22m

Hence length of the wire is=4×22=88m.

**(i) **Now this 88m wire is bent in the form of an equilateral triangle.

Side of the triangle = 88/3

= 29.3 m

Area of the triangle = (√3/4)×(side)^{2}

= (√3/4)×(29.3)^{2}

= 372.58 m^{2} .

**(ii) **Let x be the breadth of the rectangle.

Now

2(l+ b) = 88

⇒ 16 + x = 44

⇒ x = 28 m

Hence, area=16×28=448m^{2} .

**27. For each trapezium given below; find its area.**

**Answer **

**(i)**

Again,

Area of △ EBC = (1/2)×8×h

36.6 =4h

⇒ h =9.15

Area of ABCD = (1/2)×(12+20)×9.15

= (1/2)×32×9.15

= 146.64 sq.cm

**(ii)**

**(iii)**

For the triangle EBC,

Let h be the height.

Area of △EBC = (1/2)×12×h

⇒ 59.9 = 6h

⇒ h = 59.9/6 = 9.98cm

Area of ABCD = (1/2)×(20+32)×9.98

= (1/2)×52×9.98

= 259.48 cm^{2}

**(iv) **In the given figure, we can observe that the non-parallel sides are equal and hence it is an isosceles trapezium.

Therefore, let us draw DE and CF perpendiculars to AB.

Thus, the area of the parallelogram is given by

Since AB = AE + EF + FB and CD = EF = 18cm, we have

30 = AE +18+ FB

⇒ 2AE + 18 = 30

⇒ 2AE = 30 - 18

⇒ 2AE = 12

⇒ AE = 6 cm

Now, consider the right angled triangle ADE.

AD^{2} = AE^{2} + DE^{2}

⇒ 12^{2} = 6^{2} + DE^{2}

⇒ 144 = 36 + DE^{2}

⇒ DE^{2} = 144 - 36

⇒ DE^{2} = 108

⇒ DE = √(36×3)

⇒ DE = 6√3

Area(◻️ABCD) = Area (△ADE) + Area (◻️DEFC) + Area(△CFB)

⇒ Area(◻️ABCD) = (1/2)×6×6√3 + 18×6√3 + (1/2)×6×6√3

⇒ Area(◻️ABCD) = 6×6√3 + 18×6√3

⇒ Area(◻️ABCD) = 144√3 = 249.41 cm^{2} .

**28. The perimeter of a rectangular board is 70 cm. Taking its length as x cm, find its width in terms of x.**

**If the area of the rectangular board is 300 cm ^{2}; find its dimensions.**

**Answer**

Let b be the breadth of rectangle. then its perimeter

2(x+ b) = 70

⇒ x + b = 35

⇒ b = 35 - x

Again,

x × b = 300

⇒ x(35-x) = 300

⇒ x^{2} - 35x + 300 = 0

⇒ (x-15)(x-20) = 0

⇒ x =15, 20

Hence, its length is 20cm and width is 15cm.

**29. The area of a rectangular is 640 m ^{2}. Taking its length as x cm; find in terms of x, the width of the rectangle. If the perimeter of the rectangle is 104 m; find its dimensions.**

**Answer **

Let b be the width of the rectangle.

x × b = 640

⇒ b = 640/x

Again perimeter of the rectangle is 104m.

Hence

2[x + (640/x)] = 104

⇒ x^{2} - 52x + 640 = 0

⇒ (x-32)(x-20) = 0

⇒ x = 32, 20

Hence,

length= 32m

width= 20m.

**30. The length of a rectangle is twice the side of a square and its width is 6 cm greater than the side of the square. If area of the rectangle is three times the area of the square; find the dimensions of each.**

**Answer **

Let a be the length of the sides of the square.

According to the question

2a×(a+6) = 3a^{2}

⇒ 2a^{2} + 12a = 3a^{2}

⇒ a = 12

Hence, sides of the square are 12cm each and

Length of the rectangle = 2a = 24cm

Width of the rectangle=a + 6=18cm.

**Answer **

Length of the wall=45+2=47m

Breath of the wall=30+2=32m

Hence area of the inner surface of the wall is given by

A = (47×2×2.4) + (32×2×2.4)

= 225.6 + 153.6

= 379.2 m^{2}

**33. A wire when bent in the form of a square encloses an area = 576 cm ^{2}. Find the largest area enclosed by the same wire when bent to form;**

**(i) an equilateral triangle.**

**(ii) A rectangle whose adjacent sides differ by 4 cm.**

**Answer **

Let a be the length of each side.

a^{2} = 576

⇒ a = 24cm

⇒ 4a = 96cm

Hence length of the wire=96cm

**(i) **For the equilateral triangle,

side = 96/3 = 32cm

Area = (√3/4)(side)^{2}

= (√3/4)×32^{2}

= 256√3 sq. m

**(ii) **Let the adjacent side of the rectangle be x and y cm.

Since the perimeter is 96 cm, we have,

2(x+ y) = 96

Hence,

x+ y = 48

x- y = 4

⇒ x = 26

⇒ y = 22

Hence, area of the rectangle is = 26×22 = 572 sq.cm

**34. The area of a parallelogram is y cm ^{2} and its height is h cm. The base of another parallelogram is x cm more than the base of the first parallelogram and its area is twice the area of the first. Find, in terms of y, h and x, the expression for the height of the second parallelogram.**

**Answer **

Let ‘y’ and ‘h’ be the area and the height of the first parallelogram respectively.

Let ‘height’ be the height of the second parallelogram

base of the first parallelogram= y/h cm

base of second parallelogram= [(y/h) +x] cm

⇒ [(y/h) +x]×height = 2y

⇒ height = 2hy/(y+hx)

**3. The sum of the circumference and diameter of a circle is 116 cm. Find its radius.**

**Answer **

Let r be the radius of the circle.

2Ï€r + 2r = 116

⇒ 2r(Ï€+1) = 116

⇒ r = 116/2(Ï€+1) = 14 cm

**4. The radii of two circles are 25 cm and 18 cm. Find the radius of the circle which has circumference equal to the sum of circumferences of these two circles.**

**Answer **

Circumference of the first circle

S_{1} = 2Ï€×25 = 50Ï€ cm

Circumference of the second circle

S_{2} = 2Ï€×18 = 36Ï€ cm

Let r be the radius of the resulting circle.

2Ï€r = 50Ï€ + 36Ï€

⇒ 2Ï€r = 86Ï€

⇒ r = 86Ï€/2Ï€ = 43 cm

**5. The radii of two circles are 48 cm and 13 cm. Find the area of the circle which has its circumference equal to the difference of the circumferences of the given two circles.**

**Answer **

Circumference of the first circle

S_{1} = 2Ï€ ×48 = 96Ï€ cm

Circumference of the second circle

S_{2} = 2Ï€ ×13 = 26Ï€ cm

Let r be the radius of the resulting circle.

2Ï€r = 96Ï€ - 26Ï€

⇒ 2Ï€r = 70Ï€

⇒ r = 70Ï€/2Ï€ = 35 cm

Hence, area of the circle

A = Ï€r^{2}

= Ï€×35^{2}

= 3850 cm^{2}

**6. The diameters of two circles are 32 cm and 24 cm. Find the radius of the circle having its area equal to sum of the areas of the two given circle.**

**Answer **

Let the area of the resulting circle be r.

Ï€×(16)^{2} + Ï€×(12)^{2} = Ï€ ×r^{2}

⇒ 256Ï€ + 144Ï€ = Ï€×r^{2}

⇒ 400Ï€ = Ï€×r^{2}

⇒ r^{2} = 400

⇒ r = 20cm

Hence, the radius of the resulting circle is 20cm.

**7. The radius of a circle is 5 m. Find the circumference of the circle whose area is 49 times the area of the given circle.**

**Answer **

Area of the circle having radius 85m is

A = Ï€×(85)^{2} = 7225Ï€m^{2}

Let r be the radius of the circle whose area is 49times of the given circle.

Ï€r^{2} = 49×(Ï€×5^{2} )

⇒ r^{2} = (7×5)^{2}

⇒ r = 35

Hence, circumference of the circle

S = 2Ï€r

= 2Ï€ ×35

= 220 m

**8. A circle of largest area is cut from a rectangular piece of card-board with dimensions 55 cm and 42 cm. Find the ratio between the area of the circle cut and the area of the remaining card-board.**

**Answer **

Area of the rectangle is given by

A = 55×42 = 2310 cm^{2}

For the largest circle, the radius of the circle will be half of the sorter side of the rectangle.

Hence, r = 21cm.

Area of the circle = Ï€×(21)^{2} = 1384.74 cm^{2}

Area remaining = 2310 - 1384.74 = 925 .26

Hence,

the volume of the circle area remaining = 1384.74 : 915.26

= 3 : 2

**9.The following figure shows a square cardboard ABCD of side 28 cm. Four identical circles of largest possible size are cut from this card as shown below.**

**Answer **

Area of the square is given by

A = 28^{2} = 784 cm^{2}

Since there are four identical circles inside the square.

Hence radius of each circle is one fourth of the side of the square.

Area of one circle = Ï€× 7^{2} = 154 cm^{2}

Area of four circle = 4×154 cm^{2} = 616 cm^{2}

Area remaining = 784 - 616 = 168 cm^{2}

Area remaining in the cardboard is = 168 cm^{2}

**10. The radii of two circles are in the ratio 3 : 8. If the difference between their areas is 2695 cm ^{2}, find the area of the smaller circle.**

**Answer **

Let the radius of the two circles be 3r and 8r respectively.

area of the circle having radius 3r = Ï€(3r)^{2}

= 9Ï€r^{2}

area of the circle having radius 8r = Ï€(8r)^{2}

= 64 Ï€r^{2}

According to the question

64Ï€r^{2} - 9Ï€r^{2} = 2695Ï€

⇒ 55r^{2} = 2695

⇒ r^{2} = 49

⇒ r =7 cm

Hence radius of the smaller circle is

Area of the smaller circle is given by

A = Ï€r^{2} = (22/7)×21^{2} = 1386 cm^{2}

**11. The diameters of three circles are in the ratio 3 : 5 : 6. If the sum of the circumferences of these circles be 308 cm; find the difference between the areas of the largest and the smallest of these circles.**

**Answer**

Let the diameter of the three circles be 3d, 5d and 6d respectively.

Ï€×3d + Ï€×5d + Ï€×6d = 308

⇒ 14Ï€d = 308

⇒ d = 7

radius of the smallest circle = 21/2 = 10.5

Area = Ï€×(10.5)^{2} = 346

radius of the largest circle = 42/2 = 21

Area = Ï€ ×(21)^{2}

= 1385.5

Difference = 1385.5 - 346

= 1039.5

**12. Find the area of a ring shaped region enclosed between two concentric circles of radii 20 cm and 15 cm.**

**Answer **

= 175Ï€

= 549.7 cm^{2}

**13. The circumference of a given circular park is 55 m. It is surrounded by a path of uniform width 3.5 m . Find the area of the path.**

**Answer **

Let r be the radius of the circular park.

2Ï€r = 55

⇒ r = 55/2Ï€ = 8.75 m

area of the park = Ï€×(8.75)^{2} = 240.625 m^{2}

Radius of the outer circular region including the path is given by

R = 8.75 + 3.5 = 12.25 m

Area of that circular region is

A = Ï€×(12.25)^{2} = 471.625 m^{2}

Hence, area of the path is given by

Area of the path = 471.625 - 240.625 = 231 m^{2}

**14.There are two circular gardens A and B. The circumference of garden A is 1.760 km and the area of garden B is 25 times the area of garden A. Find the circumference of garden B.**

**Answer**

2Ï€r = 1760 m

⇒ r = (1760×7)/(2×22) = 280 m

Area of garden A= Ï€r

^{2}= (22/7) × 280

^{2}m

^{2}

Let R be the radius of the circular garden B.

Since the area of garden B is 25 times the area of garden A, we have,

2Ï€R

^{2}= 25 ×Ï€r

^{2}

⇒ Ï€R

^{2}= 25 × Ï€ × 280

^{2}

⇒ R

^{2}= 1960000

⇒ R = 1400 m

**15. A wheel has diameter 84 cm. Find how many completer revolutions must it make to cover 3.168 km.**

**Answer **

Diameter of the wheel = 84cm

Thus, radius of the wheel = 42cm

Circumference of the wheel = 2×(22/7)×42 = 264 cm

In 264 cm, wheel is covering one revolution.

Thus, in 3.168 km = 3.168 ×100000 cm, number of revolutions covered by the wheel = (3.168/264)×100000 = 1200

**16. Each wheel of a car is of diameter 80 cm. How many completer revolutions does each wheel make in 10 minutes when the car is travelling at a speed of 66 km per hour?**

**Answer**

= 11 km

= 1100000 cm

Circumference of the wheel = distance covered by the wheel in one revolution

thus, we have,

Circumference = 2×(22/7)×(80/2) = 251.43 cm

Thus, the number of revolutions covered

by the wheel in 1100000 cm = 1100000/251.43 ≈ 4375

**17. An express train is running between two stations with a uniform speed. If the diameter of each wheel of the train is 42 cm and each wheel makes 1200 revolutions per minute, find the speed of the train.**

**Answer **

Radius of the wheel = 42/2 = 21 cm

circumference of the wheel = 2Ï€×21 = 132 cm

Distance travelled in one minute = 132×1200

= 158400 cm

= 1.584 km

Hence, the speed of the train = 1.584km/(1/60)hr

= 95.04 km/hr

**18. The minute hand of a clock is 8 cm long. Find the area swept by the minute hand between 8.30 a.m. and 9.05 a.m.**

**19. The shaded portion of the figure, given alongside, shows two concentric circles.**

**If the circumference of the two circles be 396 cm and 374 cm, find the area of the shaded portion.**

**Answer**

Let R and r be the radius of the big and small circles respectively.

Thus, we have,

2Ï€R = 396 cm

⇒ R = (396×7)/(2×22)

⇒ R = 63 cm

Thus, area of the bigger circle = Ï€R

^{2}

^{2}

= 12474 cm

^{2}

⇒ 2Ï€r = 374

⇒ r = (374×7)/(2×22)

⇒ r = 59.5 cm

Thus, the area of the smaller circle = Ï€r

^{2}

= (22/7)×59.5

^{2}

= 11126.5 cm

^{2}

^{2}

**20. ****In the given figure, the area of the shaded portion is 770 cm ^{2}. If the circumference of the outer circle is 132 cm, find the width of the shaded portion.**

**Answer **

From the given data, we can calculate the area of the outer circle and then the area of inner circle and hence the width of the shaded portion.

Given that the circumference of the outer circle is 132 cm

Thus, we have, 2Ï€r = 132 cm

⇒ R = (132×7)/(2×22)

⇒ R = 21 cm

Area of the bigger circle = Ï€R^{2}

= (22/7)×21^{2}

= 1386 cm^{2}

Also given the area of the shaded portion.

Thus the area of the inner circle = Area of the outer circle - Area of the shaded portion

= 1386- 770

= 616 cm^{2}

⇒ Ï€r^{2} = 616

⇒ r^{2} =(616×7)/22

⇒ r^{2} = 196

⇒ r = 14cm

Thus, the width of the shaded portion = 21 - 14 = 7 cm

**21.The cost of fencing a circular field at the rate of 240 per meter is 52,800. The field is to be ploughed at the rate of 12.50 per m ^{2}. Find the cost of pouching the field.**

**Answer **

Let the radius of the field is *r* meter.

Therefore circumference of the field will be: meter.

Now the cost of fencing the circular field is 52,800 at rate 240 per meter.

Therefore

2Ï€r×240 = 52800

r = (52800×7)/(2×240×22) = 35

Thus the radius of the field is 35 meter.

Now the area of the field will be:

Ï€r^{2} = (22/7)×(35)^{2} = 3850 m^{2}

Thus the cost of ploughing the field will be:

**22. ****Two circles touch each other externally. The sum of their areas is 58 cm ^{2} and the distance between their centers is 10 cm. Find the radii of the two circles.**

**Answer **

Let r and R be the radius of the two circles.

y + R = 10 **...(1)**

Ï€y^{2} + Ï€R^{2} = 58Ï€ **...(2)**

Putting the value of r in (2)

r^{2} + R^{2} = 58

⇒ (10-R)^{2} + R^{2} = 58

⇒ 100 - 20R + R^{2} + R^{2} = 58

⇒ 2R^{2} - 20R + 42 = 0

⇒ R^{2} - 10R + 21 = 0

⇒ (R - 3)(R-7) = 0

⇒ R = 3, 7

Hence, the radius of the two circles is 3cm and 7cm respectively.

**23. ****The given figures shows a rectangle ABCD inscribed in a circle as shown alongside. ****If AB = 28 cm and BC = 21 cm, find the area of the shaded portion of the given figure.**

**Answer**

From the figure:

AB = 28cm

BC = 21cm

Hence diameter of the circle is 35 cm and hence

Area = Ï€×(35/2)

^{2}= 962.5 cm

^{2}

Area of the rectangle = 28×21 = 588 cm

^{2}

Hence area of the shaded portion is given by

A = 962 - 588 = 374.5 cm

^{2}

**24. A square is inscribed in a circle of radius 7 cm. Find the area of the square.**

**Answer**

Since the diameter of the circle is the diagonal of the square inscribed in the circle.

Let a be the length of the sides of the square.

Hence,

√2a = 2×7

⇒ a = √2 × 7

⇒ a^{2} = 98

Hence, the area of the square is 98 sq.cm.

**25. A metal wire, when bent in the form of an equilateral triangle of largest area, encloses an area of 484√3 cm ^{2}. If the same wire is bent into the form of a circle of largest area, find the area of this circle.**

**Answer**

Now, area of equilateral triangle formed = 484√3 cm

^{2}

⇒ (√3/4)a

^{2}= 484√3

⇒ a

^{2}= 4×484

⇒ a = 2×22 = 44 cm

Then, perimeter of equilateral triangle = 3a= 3×44 = 132 cm

Now, length of wire = perimeter of equilateral triangle = circumference of circle

⇒ circumference of circle = 132 cm

⇒ 2Ï€r = 132

**(r is radius of circle)**

∴ Area of circle = Ï€r

^{2}= (22/7)×21×21 = 1386 cm

^{2}

**Exercise 20 (D)**

**1. The perimeter of a triangle is 450m and its side are in the ratio 12 : 5: 13. Find the area of the triangle.**

**Answer **

Let the sides of the triangle be

a = 12x

b = 5x

c = 13x

Given that the perimeter = 450 cm

⇒ 12x + 5x + 13x = 450

⇒ 30x = 450

⇒ x = 15

Hence, the sides of a triangle are

a = 12x = 12(15) = 180 cm

b = 5x = 5(15) = 75 cm

c = 13x = 13(15) = 195 cm

Now,

**2. A triangle and a parallelogram have the same base and the same area. If the side of the triangle are 26 cm, 28 cm and 30 cm and the parallelogram stands on the base 28 cm, find the height of the parallelogram.**

**Answer **

Let the sides of the triangle be

a = 26 cm, b = 28 cm and c = 30 cm

Now,

= 7×4×6×2

= 336 cm

^{2}

Base of a parallelogram = 28 cm

Given,

Area of parallelogram = Area of triangle

⇒ Base × Height = 336

⇒ 28× Height = 336

⇒ Height = 12 cm

**3. ****Using the information in the following figure, find its area.**

**Answer **

**Construction: **Draw CM ⊥ AB

In right-angled triangle CMB,

BM^{2} = BC^{2} – CM^{2} = (15)^{2} – (9)^{2} = 225 – 81 = 144

⇒ BM = 12 m

Now, AB = AM + BM = 23 + 12 = 35 m

∴ Area of trapezium ABCD = (1/2)×(sum of parallel sides)×Height

= (1/2)×(AB + CD)×AD

= (1/2)×(23+35)×9

= (1/2)×58×9

= 261 m^{2}

**4. Sum of the areas or two squares is 400 cm ^{2}. If the difference of their perimeters is 16 cm, find the sides of the two squares.**

**Answer **

Let the sides of two squares be a and b respectively.

Then, area of one square, S_{1} = a^{2}

And, area of second square, S_{2} = b^{2}

Given, S_{1} + S_{2} = 400 cm^{2}

⇒ a^{2} + b^{2} = 400 cm^{2} **...(1)**

Also, difference in perimeter = 16 cm

⇒ 4a – 4b = 16 cm

⇒ a – b = 4

⇒ a = (4 + b)

Substituting the value of ‘a’ in (1), we get

(4 + b)^{2} + b^{2} = 400

⇒ 16 + 8b + b^{2} + b^{2} = 400

⇒ 2b^{2} + 8b – 384 = 0

⇒ b^{2} + 4b – 192 = 0

⇒ b^{2} + 16b – 12b – 192 = 0

⇒ b(b + 16) – 12(b + 16) = 0

⇒ (b +16)(b – 12) = 0

⇒ b + 16 = 0 or b – 12 = 0

⇒ b = -16 or b = 12

Since, the side of a square cannot be negative, we reject -16.

Thus, b = 12

⇒ a = 4 + b = 4 + 12 = 16

Hence, the sides of a square are 16 cm and 12 cm respectively.

**5. Find the area and the perimeter of a square with diagonal 24 cm.**

**[Take √2 =1.41]**

**Solution **

Diagonal of a square = 24 cm

⇒ 24 = side of a square × √2

⇒ Side of a square = 24/√2 = (12×√2×√2)/√2 = 12√2

∴ Area of a square = (side)

^{2}= (12√2)

^{2}= 288 cm

**6. A steel wire, when bent in the form of a square, encloses an area of 121 cm ^{2}. The same wire is bent in the form of a circle. Find area the circle.**

**Answer**

^{2}

⇒ 121 = (Side)

^{2}

⇒ Side of a square = 11 cm

Now,

⇒ 4×side = Perimeter of a circle

⇒ Perimeter of a circle = 44 cm

⇒ 2Ï€r = 44 (r is radius of a circle)

⇒ r = 44/2Ï€ = 44/2(22/7) = 7cm

∴ Area of a circle = Ï€r

^{2}= (22/7)×7×7 = 154 cm

**7. The perimeter of a semicircular plate is 108 cm. find its area.**

**Answer **

Perimeter of a semi - circular plate = 108 cm

⇒ Ï€r + 2r = 108 **(r is radius of a circle)**

⇒ r(Ï€ + 2) = 108

⇒ r = 108/(Ï€ + 2) = 108/[(22/7) + 2] = (108×7)/36 = 21 cm

Now, area of a semi - circular plate = Ï€r^{2}/2 = [(22/7)×21×21]/2 = 693 cm^{2}

**8. Two circles touch externally. The sum of their areas is 130Ï€ sq. cm and the distance between their centres is 14 cm. Find the radii of the circles.**

**Answer **

Let the radii of two circles be r_{1} and r_{2} respectively.

Sum of the areas of two circles = 130Ï€ sq. cm

⇒ Ï€r_{1}^{2} + Ï€r_{2}^{2} = 130Ï€

⇒ r_{1}^{2} + r_{2}^{2} = 130 **...(i)**

Also, distance between two radii = 14 cm

⇒ r_{1} + r_{2} = 14

⇒ r_{1} = (14 – r_{2})

Substituting the value of r_{1} in (i), we get

(14 – r_{2})^{2} + r_{2}^{2} = 130

⇒ 196 – 28r_{2} + r_{2}^{2} + r_{2}^{2} = 130

⇒ 2r_{2}^{2} – 28r_{2} + 66 = 0

⇒ r_{2}^{2} – 14r_{2} + 33 = 0

⇒ r_{2}^{2} – 11r_{2} – 3r_{2} + 33 = 0

⇒ r_{2 }(r_{2} – 11) – 3 (r_{2} – 11) = 0

⇒ (r_{2} – 11) (r_{2} – 3) = 0

⇒ r_{2} = 11 or r_{2} = 3

⇒ r_{1} = 14 – 11 = 3 or r_{1} = 14 – 3 = 11

Thus, the radii of two circles are 11 cm and 3 cm respectively.

**The diameters of the front and the rear wheels of a tractor are 63 cm and 1.54m respectively. The rear wheel is rotating at 24(6/11) revolutions per minute. Find :**

Answer

Answer

Given the diameter of the front and rear wheels are 63cm = 0.63m and 1.54m respectively.

Radius of the rear wheel = 1.54/2 = 0.77 m

and radius of the front wheel = 0.63/2 = 0.315 m

Distance travelled by tractor in one revolution of rear wheel

= circumference of the rear wheel

= 2Ï€r

= 2×(22/7)×0.77 = 4.84 m

The rear wheel rotates at 24(6/11) revolutions per minute

= 270/11 revolutions per minute

Since in one revolution the distance travelled by the rear wheel = 4.84 m

So, in 270/11 revolutions, the tractor travels (270/11)×4.84 = 118.8 m

Let the number of revolutions made by the front wheel be x. **(i)** Now, number of revolutions made by the front wheel in one minute x circumference of the wheel

= the distance travelled by the tractor in one minute

⇒ x × 2 ×(22/7)×0.315 = 118.8

⇒ x = (118.8×7)/(2×22×0.315) = 60 **(ii)** Distance travelled by the tractor in 40 minutes

= Number of revolutions made by the rear wheel in 40 minutes x circumference of the rear wheel

= 270/11 ×40×4.84 = 4752 m

**10. Two circles touch each other externally. The sum of their areas is 74Ï€ cm ^{2} and the distance between their centres is 12 cm. Find the diameters of the circle.**

**Answer**

Let the radius of the circles be r_{1 } and r_{2 } .

So, r_{1} + r_{2 } = 12 ⇒ r_{2} = 12 – r_{1}

Sum of the areas of the circles = 74 Ï€

⇒ Ï€r_{1}^{2} + Ï€r_{2}^{2} = 74Ï€

⇒ r_{1}^{2} + r_{2}^{2} = 74

⇒ r_{1}^{2} + (12-r_{1})^{2} = 74

⇒ r_{1}^{2 }+ 144 - 24 r_{1} + r_{1}^{2} = 74

⇒ 2 r_{1}^{2} - 24 r_{1} + 70 = 0

⇒ r_{1}^{2} - 12 r_{1} + 35 = 0

⇒ (r_{1} – 7)( r_{1} – 5) = 0

⇒ r_{1} = 7 or r_{1} = 5

If r_{1} = 7cm, then r_{2} = 5cm

If r_{1} = 5cm, then r_{2} = 7cm

So, the diameters of the circles will be 10 cm and 14cm.
