Exercise 15.1 Solutions
1. Find the circumference and area of circle of radius 4.2 cm .
Solution
Radius (r) = 4.2 cm
Circumference = 2 × r
2. Find the circumference of a circle whose area is 301.84 cm^{2} .
SolutionArea of circle = 301.84cm^{2} .
Let radius = r cm
Area of circle = Ï€r^{2}
3. Find the area of circle whose circumference is 44 cm.
Solution
Circumference = 44 cm
Let radius = r cm
Circumference = 2 × r = 44 cm
Solution
Let radius of circle = r cm
Diameter (d) = 2× radius = 2r
Circumference (c) = 2Ï€r
Given circumference exceeds diameter by 16.8 cm
Circumference (c) = 2Ï€r
Given circumference exceeds diameter by 16.8 cm
5. A horse is tied to a pole with 28m long string. Find the area where the horse can graze.
Solution
Length of string l = 28m
6. A steel wire when bent is the form of square encloses an area of 12 cm^{2} . If the same wire is bent in form of circle. Find the area of circle.
Solution
7. A horse is placed for grazing inside a rectangular field 40 m by 36 m and is tethered to one corner by a rope 14m long. Over how much area can it graze.
Solution
The fig shows rectangular field ABCD at corner A, a horse is tied with rope length = 14 m.
The area it can graze is represented A as shaded region = area of quadrant with (radius = length) of string
8. A sheet of paper is in the form of rectangle ABCD in which AB = 40 cm and AD = 28 cm.
A semicircular portion with BC as diameter is cut off. Find the area of remaining paper.
Solution
9. The circumference of two circles are in ratio 2 : 3. Find the ratio of their areas
Solution
Let radius of two circles be r_{1} and r_{2} then their circumferences will be 2Ï€r_{1} : 2Ï€r_{2} = r_{1} : r_{2}
But circumference ratio is given as 2 : 3
r_{1} : r_{2} = 2 : 3
But circumference ratio is given as 2 : 3
r_{1} : r_{2} = 2 : 3
10. The side of a square is 10 cm. find the area of circumscribed and inscribed circles.
Solution
Circumscribed circle
11. The sum of the radii of two circles is 140 cm and the difference of their circumferences in 88 cm. Find the diameters of the circles.
Solution
12. The area of circle, inscribed in equilateral triangle is 154 cm^{2} . Find the perimeter of triangle.
Solution
13. A field is in the form of circle. A fence is to be erected around the field. The cost of fencing would to Rs. 2640 at rate of Rs. 12 per metre. Then the field is to be thoroughs ploughed at cost of Rs. 0.50 per m^{2} . What is amount required to plough the field ?
Solution
Given,
Total cost of fencing the circular field = Rs. 2640
Cost per metre fencing = Rs. 12
Total cost of fencing = circumference × cost per fencing
Cost per metre fencing = Rs. 12
Total cost of fencing = circumference × cost per fencing
⇒2640 = circumference × 12
⇒ circumference = 2640/12 = 220 m
⇒ circumference = 2640/12 = 220 m
Let radius of field be r m
Circumference = 2Ï€r m
2Ï€r = 220
2 × 22/7 × r = 220
r = 70/2 = 35m
2 × 22/7 × r = 220
r = 70/2 = 35m
Area of field = Ï€r^{2} .
= 22/7 × 35×35
= 3850 m^{2} .
= 3850 m^{2} .
Cost of ploughing per m^{2} land = Rs. 0.50
Cost of ploughing 3850 m^{2} land = 1/2 × 3850 = Rs. 1925.
14. If a square is inscribed in a circle, find the ratio of areas of the circle and the square.
Solution
15. A park is in the form of rectangle 120m × 100m. At the centre of park there is a circular lawn. The area of park excluding lawn is 8700m^{2} . Find the radius of circular lawn.
Solution
Solution
Radius of circles are 8 cm and 6 cm
17. The radii of two circles are 19cm and 9 cm respectively. Find the radius and area of the circle which has circumferences is equal to sum of circumference of two circles.
Solution
Radius of 1st circle = 19cm
Radius of 2nd circle = 9cm
Circumference of 1st circle = 2(19) = 38Ï€ cm
Circumference of 2nd circle = 2Ï€(9) = 18Ï€ cm
Let radius of required circle = R cm
18. A car travels 1 km distance in which each wheel makes 450 complete revolutions. Find the radius of wheel.
Solution
Let radius of wheel = 'r' m
19. The area enclosed between the concentric circles is 770 cm^{2} . If the radius of inner circle.
Solution
Radius of outer circle = 21 cm
