ii) 10 square metre in square cm.

10. A rectangular park is 40 m long and 24 m wide. A path 3m wide is constructed outside the park. Find the area of the path?

ANSWERS:

1. Area of the parallelogram = b x h

Given b= 6 cm and h = 2 cm

Area = 6 x 2 = 12 sq. cm.

2. Given perimeter of a square = 480 m

Length of one side =480/4 = 120 m

Area = side x side = 120 x 120 = 14400 sq. m.

3. Given area = 120 sq. m and length = 20 m

b = Area/length = 120/20 = 6m.

Perimeter = 2 x (l +b) = 2 x (20 + 6) = 2 x 26 = 52 m

4. Given perimeter of a rectangular sheet = 120 cm and length = 30 cm

Let breadth be b then 2 x (30 + b) = 120

30 + b = 120/2 = 60

b = 60 – 30 = 30 cm

Area = side x side = 30 x 30 = 900 sq. cm (since it is a square)

5. Given area of the parallelogram = 48 q cm and breadth = 6cm

Area = b x h

48 = 6 x h

h = 48/6 = 8 cm.

6. Area of a triangle = 48 sq. cm and h = 4 cm

Area = ½ x b x h

48 = ½ x b x 4

96 = 4b

b = 96/4 = 24 cm

7. Circumference of a circle = Pi x d

Given d = 12 cm

C = 12 x 3.14 = 37.68cm

8. Circumference of a circle = 2 x pi x r

Given r = 28 cm

C = 2 x 22/7 x 28

= 176 cm

9. i. 50 sq. cm = 5000 sq. mm

ii. 10 sq. m = 100000 sq. cm

10. Let ABCD be the inner rectangle and PQRS be the outer rectangle.

To find the area of the path,

we need to find Area of PQRS – Area of ABCD.

We have PQ = 40 + 3 + 3 = 46m

PS = 24 + 3 + 3 = 30 m

Area of ABCD = l x b = 40 x 24 = 960 sq. m

Area of PQRS = l x b = 46 x 30 = 1380 sq. m

Area of the path = 1380 – 960 = 420 sq. m.
