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.

b=4x

c=5x

Given that the perimeter is 144 cm.

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.

Question 5

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

[Take =1.41]

Solution 5

Diagonal of a square = 24 cm

Question 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.

Question 7

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

Solution 7

Question 8

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

Solution 8

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

Sum of the areas of two circles = 130π sq. cm

⇒ πr_{1}^{2} + πr_{2}^{2} = 130π

⇒ 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.

Question 10

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

Solution 10
