## EXERCISE 11.4

#### Question 1:

A garden is 90 m long and 75 m broad. A path 5 m wide is to be built outside and around it. Find the area of the path. Also find the area of the garden in hectare.

Length (l) of garden = 90 m

Breadth (b) of garden = 75 m

Area of garden = l × b = 90 × 75 = 6750 m2

From the figure, it can be observed that the new length and breadth of the garden, when path is also included, are 100m and 85m respectively.

Area of the garden including the path = 100 × 85 = 8500 m2

Area of path = Area of the garden including the path − Area of garden

= 8500 − 6750 = 1750 m2

1 hectare = 10000 m2

Therefore, area of garden in hectare

#### Question 2:

A 3 m wide path runs outside and around a rectangular park of length 125 m and breadth 65 m. Find the area of the path.

Length (l) of park = 125 m

Breadth (b) of park = 65 m

Area of park = l × b = 125 × 65 = 8125 m2

From the figure, it can be observed that the new length and breadth of the park, when path is also included, are 131 m and 71 m respectively.

Area of the park including the path = 131 × 71 = 9301 m2

Area of path = Area of the park including the path − Area of park

= 9301 − 8125 = 1176 m2

#### Question 3:

A picture is painted on a cardboard 8 cm long and 5 cm wide such that there is a margin of 1.5 cm along each of its sides. Find the total area of the margin.

Length (l) of cardboard = 8 cm

Breadth (b) of cardboard = 5 cm

Area of cardboard including margin = l × b = 8 × 5 = 40 cm2

From the figure, it can be observed that the new length and breadth of the cardboard, when margin is not included, are 5 cm and 2 cm respectively.

Area of the cardboard not including the margin = 5 × 2 = 10 cm2

Area of the margin = Area of cardboard including the margin − Area of cardboard not

including the margin

= 40 − 10 = 30 cm2

#### Question 4:

A verandahof width 2.25 m is constructed all along outside a room which is 5.5 m long and 4 m wide. Find:

(i) the area of the verandah

(ii) the cost of cementing the floor of the verandah at the rate of Rs 200 per m2.

(i)

Length (l) of room = 5.5 m

Breadth (b) of room = 4 m

Area of room = l × b = 5.5 × 4 = 22 m2

From the figure, it can be observed that the new length and breadth of the room, when verandah is also included, are 10 m and 8.5 m respectively.

Area of the room including the verandah = 10 × 8.5 = 85 m2

Area of verandah = Area of the room including the verandah − Area of room

= 85 − 22 = 63 m2

(ii)

Cost of cementing 1 m2 area of the floor of the verandah = Rs 200

Cost of cementing 63 m2 area of the floor of the verandah = 200 × 63

= Rs 12600

#### Question 5:

A path 1 m wide is built along the border and inside a square garden of side 30 m. Find:

(i) the area of the path

(ii) the cost of planting grass in the remaining portion of the garden at the rate of Rs 40 per m2.

(i)

Side (a) of square garden = 30 m

Area of square garden including path = a2 = (30)2 = 900 m2

From the figure, it can be observed that the side of the square garden, when path is not included, is 28 m.

Area of the square garden not including the path = (28)2 = 784 m2

Area of path = Area of the square garden including the path − Area of square

garden not including the path

= 900 − 784 = 116 m2

(ii)

Cost of planting grass in 1 m2 area of the garden = Rs 40

Cost of planting grass in 784 m2 area of the garden = 784 × 40 = Rs 31360

#### Question 6:

Two cross roads, each of width 10 m, cut at right angles through the centre of a rectangular park of length 700 m and breadth 300 m and parallel to its sides. Find the area of the roads. Also find the area of the park excluding cross roads. Give the answer in hectares.

Length (l) of park = 700 m

Breadth (b) of park = 300 m

Area of park = 700 × 300 = 210000 m2

Length of road PQRS = 700 m

Length of road ABCD = 300 m

Width of each road = 10 m

Area of the roads = ar (PQRS) + ar (ABCD) − ar (KLMN)

= (700 × 10) + (300 × 10) − (10 × 10)

= 7000 + 3000 − 100

= 10000 − 100 = 9900 m2 = 0.99 hectare

Area of park excluding roads = 210000 − 9900 = 200100 m= 20.01 hectare

#### Question 7:

Through a rectangular field of length 90 m and breadth 60 m, two roads are constructed which are parallel to the sides and cut each other at right angles through the centre of the fields. If the width of each road is 3 m, find

(i) the area covered by the roads.

(ii)the cost of constructing the roads at the rate of Rs 110 per m2.

Length (l) of field = 90 m

Breadth (b) of field = 60 m

Area of field = 90 × 60 = 5400 m2

Length of road PQRS = 90 m

Length of road ABCD = 60 m

Width of each road = 3 m

Area of the roads = ar (PQRS) + ar (ABCD) − ar (KLMN)

= (90 × 3) + (60 × 3) − (3 × 3)

= 270 + 180 − 9 = 441 m2

Cost for constructing 1 m2 road = Rs 110

Cost for constructing 441 m2 road = 110 × 441 = Rs 48510

#### Question 8:

Pragya wrapped a cord around a circular pipe of radius 4 cm (adjoining figure) and cut off the length required of the cord. Then she wrapped it around a square box of side 4 cm (also shown). Did she have any cord left? (π= 3.14).

Perimeter of the square = 4 × Side of the square = 4 × 4 = 16 cm

Perimeter of circular pipe = 2πr = 2 × 3.14 × 4 = 25.12 cm

Length of chord left with Pragya = 25.12 − 16 = 9.12 cm

#### Question 9:

The adjoining figure represents a rectangular lawn with a circular flower bed in the middle. Find:

(i) the area of the whole land

(ii) the area of the flower bed

(iii) the area of the lawn excluding the area of the flower bed

(iv) the circumference of the flower bed.

(i) Area of whole land = Length × Breadth = 10 × 5 = 50 m2

(ii) Area of flower bed = πr2 = 3.14 × 2 × 2 = 12.56 m2

(iii) Area of lawn excluding the flower bed = Area of whole land − Area of

flower bed

= 50 − 12.56 = 37.44 m2

(iv)Circumference of flower bed = 2π= 2 × 3.14 × 2 = 12.56 m

#### Question 10:

In the following figures, find the area of the shaded portions:

(i)

Area of EFDC = ar (ABCD) − ar (BCE) − ar (AFE)

= (18 × 10) −(10 × 8) − (6 × 10)

= 180 − 40 − 30 = 110 cm2

(ii)

ar (QTU) = ar (PQRS) − ar (TSU) − ar (RUQ) − ar (PQT)

= (20 × 20) −(10 × 10) − (20 × 10) −(20 × 10)

= 400 − 50 − 100 − 100 = 150 cm2

#### Question 11:

Here, AC = 22 cm, BM = 3 cm,

DN = 3 cm, and

BM⊥AC, DN⊥AC
