**Exe-20 A, Concise Class-9 Area and Perimeter** of Plane Figure ICSE Mathematics Solutions

Question 1

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

**Answer 1**

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

s = 18+24+302

= 36

Hence the area of the triangle is

= 216 sq cm

again

A =1/2 base x height

hence

216 = 1/2 base x height

216 = 1/2 x 30 x h

h = 14.4 cm

Question 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 2**

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

Question 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 3**

(i)

Area of the triangle is given by

(ii)

Again area of the triangle

Question 4

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

Solution 4

Question 5

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

Solution 5

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

Here

It is given that

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,

Question 6

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

Solution 6

It is given that

Let ‘a’ be the length of an equal side.

Hence perimeter=

Question 7

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

Solution 7

From ,

Area of

Area of

Now

Question 8

Find the area 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}

^{}

^{Solution 8}

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

Hence perimeter=8+10+13+5=36cm

Area of

Now

Question 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.

Solution 9

Question 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.

(ii)

Consider the following figure.

Question 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.

Solution 11

Let the height of the triangle be x cm.

Equal sides are (x+4) cm.

According to Pythagoras theorem,

Hence perimeter=

Area of the isosceles triangle is given by

Here a=20cm

b=24cm

hence

Question 12

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

Solution 12

Each side of the triangle is

Hence the area of the equilateral triangle is given by

Question 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.

Solution 13

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

Hence AB=15cm, AC=20cm and

Question 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.

Solution 14

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

Now

Hence the sides are 12cm, 9cm

and

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

Question 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.
