## Exercise 11.1

1. The Length and the breadth of a rectangular piece of land are 500 m and 300 m respectively. Find

(i) Its area (ii) the cost of the land, if 1 m2 of the land costs Rs. 10,000.

Solution:-

From the question it is given that,

Length of the rectangular piece of land = 500 m

Breadth of the rectangular piece of land = 300 m

Then,

(i) Area of rectangle = Length × Breadth

= 500 × 300

= 150000 m2

(ii) Cost of the land for 1 m2 = Rs. 10000

Cost of the land for 150000 m2 = 10000 × 150000

= Rs. 1500000000

2. Find the area of a square park whose perimeter is 320m.

Solution:-

From the question it is given that,

Perimeter of the square park = 320 m

4 × Length of the side of park = 320 m

Then,

Length of the side of park = 320/4

= 80 m

So, Area of the square park = (length of the side of park)2

= 802

= 6400 m2

3. Find the breadth of a rectangular plot of land, if its area is 440 m2 and the length is 22 m. Also find its perimeter.

Solution:-

From the question it is given that,

Area of the rectangular plot = 440 m2

Length of the rectangular plot = 22 m

We know that,

Area of the rectangle = Length × Breadth

440 = 22 × Breadth

Breadth = 20 m

Then,

Perimeter of the rectangle = 2(Length + Breadth)

= 2 (22 + 20)

= 2(42)

= 84 m

∴Perimeter of the rectangular plot is 84 m.

4. The perimeter of a rectangular sheet is 100 cm. If the length is 35 cm, find its breadth.

Also find the area.

Solution:-

From the question it is given that,

Perimeter of the a rectangular sheet = 100 cm

Length of the rectangular sheet = 35 cm

We know that,

Perimeter of the rectangle = 2 (Length + Breadth)

100 = 2 (35 + Breadth)

(100/2) = 35 + Breadth

50 – 35 = Breadth

Breadth = 15 cm

Then,

Area of the rectangle = Length × Breadth

= 35 × 15

= 525 cm2

∴Area of the rectangular sheet is 525 cm2

5. The area of a square park is the same as of a rectangular park. If the side of the square park is 60 m and the length of the rectangular park is 90 m, find the breadth of the rectangular park.

Solution:-

From the question it is given that,

Area of a square park is the same as of a rectangular park.

Side of the square park = 60 m

Length of the rectangular park = 90 m

We know that,

Area of the square park = (one of the side of square)2

= 602

= 3600 m2

Area of the rectangular park = 3600 m2 … [∵ given]

Length × Breadth = 3600

90 × Breadth = 3600

Breadth = 40 m

6. A wire is in the shape of a rectangle. Its length is 40 cm and breadth is 22 cm. If the same wire is rebent in the shape of a square, what will be the measure of each side.

Also find which shape encloses more area?

Solution:-

By reading the question we can conclude that, perimeter of the square is same as perimeter of rectangle.

From the question it is given that,

Length of the rectangle = 40 cm

Breadth of the square = 22 cm

Then,

Perimeter of the rectangle = Perimeter of the Square

2 (Length + Breadth) = 4 × side

2 (40 + 22) = 4 × side

2 (62) = 4 × side

124 = 4 × side

Side = 124/4

Side = 31 cm

So, Area of the rectangle = (Length × Breadth)

= 40 × 22

= 880 cm2

Area of square = side2

= 312

= 31 × 31

= 961 cm2

∴Square shaped wire encloses more area.

7. The perimeter of a rectangle is 130 cm. If the breadth of the rectangle is

30 cm, find its length. Also find the area of the rectangle.

Solution:-

From the question it is given that.

Perimeter of the rectangle = 130 cm

Breadth of the rectangle = 30

We know that,

Perimeter of rectangle = 2 (Length + Breadth)

130 = 2 (length + 30)

130/2 = length + 30

Length + 30 = 65

Length = 65 – 30

Length = 35 cm

Then,

Area of the rectangle = Length × Breadth

= 35 × 30

= 1050 cm2

8. A door of length 2 m and breadth 1 m is fitted in a wall. The length of the wall is 4.5 m and the breadth is 3.6 m (Fig). Find the cost of white washing the wall, if the rate of white washing the wall is Rs. 20 per m2.

Solution:-

From the question it is given that,

Length of the door = 2 m

Breadth of the door = 1 m

Length of the wall = 4.5 m

Breadth of the wall = 3.6 m

Then,

Area of the door = Length × Breadth

= 2 × 1

= 2 m2

Area of the wall = Length × Breadth

= 4.5 × 3.6

= 16.2 m2

So, Area to be white washed = 16.2 – 2 = 14.2 m2

Cost of white washing 1 m2 area = Rs. 20

Hence cost of whit washing 14.2 m2 area = 14.2 × 20

= Rs. 284

1470 = AD × BM

1470 = 49 × BM

BM = 1470/49

BM = 30 cm

= 22/7 × 196

= 22 × 28

= 616 mm2

(b) Diameter = 49 m

Solution:

Given, diameter of circle (d) = 49 m

We know that, radius (r) = d/2

= 49/2

= 24.5 m

Then,

Area of the circle = πr2

= 22/7 × (24.5)2

= 22/7 × 600.25

= 22 × 85.75

= 1886.5 m2

(c) Radius = 5 cm

Solution:

Given, radius of circle = 5 cm

Then,

= 78.57 cm2

3. If the circumference of a circular sheet is 154 m, find its radius. Also find the area of the sheet. (Take π = 22/7)

Solution:-

From the question it is given that,

Circumference of the circle = 154 m

Then,

We know that, Circumference of the circle = 2πr

154 = 2 × (22/7) × r

154 = 44/7 × r

r = (154 × 7)/44

r = (14 × 7)/4

r = (7 × 7)/2

r = 49/2

r = 24.5 m

Now,

Area of the circle = πr2

= 22/7 × (24.5)2

= 22/7 × 600.25

= 22 × 85.75

= 1886.5 m2

So, the radius of circle is 24.5 and area of circle is 1886.5.

4. A gardener wants to fence a circular garden of diameter 21m. Find the length of the rope he needs to purchase, if he makes 2 rounds of fence. Also find the cost of the rope, if it costs ₹ 4 per meter. (Take π = 22/7)

= 21/2

= 10.5 m

Then,

Circumference of the circle = 2πr

= 2 × (22/7) × 10.5

= 462/7

= 66 m

So, the length of rope required = 2 × 66 = 132 m

Cost of 1 m rope = Rs. 4 [given]

Cost of 132 m rope = Rs. 4 × 132

=Rs. 528

A circle of radius to be removed r = 3 cm

Then,

The area of the remaining sheet = πR– πr2

= π (R2 – r2)

= 3.14 (42 – 32)

= 3.14 (16 – 9)

= 3.14 × 7

= 21.98 cm2

So, the area of the remaining sheet is 21.98 cm2.

6. Saima wants to put a lace on the edge of a circular table cover of diameter 1.5 m. Find the length of the lace required and also find its cost if one meter of the lace costs ₹ 15. (Take π = 3.14)

Solution:-

From the question it is given that,

We know that, radius (r) = d/2

= 1.5/2

= 0.75 m

Then,

Circumference of the circle = 2πr

= 2 × 3.14 × 0.75

= 4.71 m

So, the length of lace = 4.71 m

Cost of 1 m lace = ₹ 15 [given]

Cost of 4.71 m lace = ₹ 15 × 4.71

= ₹ 70.65

7. Find the perimeter of the adjoining figure, which is a semicircle including its diameter.

Solution:-

From the question it is given that,

= 10/2

= 5 cm

Then,

Circumference of the semi-circle = πr

= (22/7) × 5

= 110/7

= 15.71 cm

Now,

Perimeter of the given figure = Circumference of the semi-circle + semi-circle diameter

= 15.71 + 10

= 25.71 cm

8. Find the cost of polishing a circular table-top of diameter 1.6 m, if the rate of polishing is Rs.15/m2. (Take π = 3.14)

Solution:-

From the question it is given that,

Diameter of the circular table-top = 1.6 m

We know that, radius (r) = d/2

= 1.6/2

= 0.8 m

Then,

Area of the circular table-top = πr2

= 3.14 × 0.82

= 3.14 × 0.8 ×0.8

= 2.0096 m2

Cost for polishing 1 m2 area = ₹ 15 [given]

Cost for polishing 2.0096 m2 area = ₹ 15 × 2.0096

= Rs. 30.144

Hence, the Cost for polishing 2.0096 m2 area is Rs. 30.144.

9. Shazli took a wire of length 44 cm and bent it into the shape of a circle. Find the radius of that circle. Also find its area. If the same wire is bent into the shape of a square, what will be the length of each of its sides? Which figure encloses more area, the circle or the square? (Take π = 22/7)

Solution:-

From the question it is given that,

Length of wire that Shazli took =44 cm

Then,

If the wire is bent into a circle,

We know that, circumference of the circle = 2πr

44 = 2 × (22/7) × r

44 = 44/7 × r

(44 × 7)/44 = r

r = 7 cm

Area of the circle = πr2

= 22/7 × 72

= 22/7 × 7 ×7

= 22 × 7

= 154 cm2

Now,

If the wire is bent into a square,

The length of the each side of square = 44/4

= 11 cm

Area of the square = length of the side of square2

= 112

= 121 cm2

By comparing the two areas of the square and circle,

Clearly, circle encloses more area.

10. From a circular card sheet of radius 14 cm, two circles of radius 3.5 cm and a rectangle of length 3 cm and breadth 1cm are removed. (as shown in the adjoining figure). Find the area of the remaining sheet. (Take π = 22/7)

Solution:-

From the question it is given that,

Radius of the circular card sheet = 14 cm

Radius of the two small circle = 3.5 cm

Length of the rectangle = 3 cm

Breadth of the rectangle = 1 cm

First we have to find out the area of circular card sheet, two circles and rectangle to find out the remaining area.

Now,

Area of the circular card sheet = πr2

= 22/7 × 142

= 22/7 × 14 × 14

= 22 × 2 × 14

= 616 cm2

Area of the 2 small circles = 2 × πr2

= 2 × (22/7 × 3.52)

= 2 × (22/7 × 3.5 × 3.5)

= 2 × ((22/7) × 12.25)

= 2 × 38.5

= 77 cm2

Area of the rectangle = Length × Breadth

= 3 × 1

= 3 cm2

Now,

The area of the remaining part = Card sheet area – (area of two small circles + rectangle

area)

= 616 – (77 + 3)

= 616 – 80

= 536 cm2

11. A circle of radius 2 cm is cut out from a square piece of an aluminium sheet of side

6 cm. What is the area of the left over aluminium sheet? (Take π = 3.14)

Solution:-

From the question it is given that,

Radius of circle = 2 cm

Square sheet side = 6 cm

First we have to find out the area of square aluminium sheet and circle to find out the remaining area.

Now,

Area of the square = side2

= 62

= 36 cm2

Area of the circle = πr2

= 3.14 × 22

= 3.14 × 2 × 2

= 3.14 × 4

= 12.56 cm2

Now,

The area of the remaining part = Area of aluminum square sheet – area of circle

= 36 – 12.56

= 23.44 cm2

12. The circumference of a circle is 31.4 cm. Find the radius and the area of the circle? (Take π = 3.14)

Solution:-

From the question it is given that,

Circumference of a circle = 31.4 cm

We know that,

Circumference of a circle = 2πr

31.4 = 2 × 3.14 × r

31.4 = 6.28 × r

31.4/6.28 = r

r = 5 cm

Then,

Area of the circle = πr2

= 3.14 × 52

= 3. 14 × 25

= 78.5 cm

13. A circular flower bed is surrounded by a path 4 m wide. The diameter of the flower bed is 66 m. What is the area of this path? (π = 3.14)

Solution:-

From the question it is given that,

Diameter of the flower bed = 66 m

Then,

Radius of the flower bed = d/2

= 66/2

= 33 m

Area of flower bed = πr2

= 3.14 × 332

= 3.14 × 1089

= 3419.46 m

Now we have to find area of the flower bed and path together

So, radius of flower bed and path together = 33 + 4 = 37 m

Area of the flower bed and path together = πr2

= 3.14 × 372

= 3.14 × 1369

= 4298.66 m

Finally,

Area of the path = Area of the flower bed and path together – Area of flower bed

= 4298.66 – 3419.46

= 879.20 m2

14. A circular flower garden has an area of 314 m2. A sprinkler at the centre of the garden can cover an area that has a radius of 12 m. Will the sprinkler water the entire garden? (Take π = 3.14)

Solution:-

From the question it is given that,

Area of the circular flower garden = 314 m2

Sprinkler at the centre of the garden can cover an area that has a radius = 12 m

Area of the circular flower garden = πr2

314 = 3.14 × r2

314/3.14 = r2

r2 = 100

r = √100

r = 10 m

∴Radius of the circular flower garden is 10 m.

Since, the sprinkler can cover an area of radius 12 m

Hence, the sprinkler will water the whole garden.

15. Find the circumference of the inner and the outer circles, shown in the adjoining figure? (Take π = 3.14)

Solution:-

From the figure,

Radius of inner circle = outer circle radius – 10

= 19 – 10

= 9 m

Circumference of the inner circle = 2πr

= 2 × 3.14 × 9

= 56.52 m

Then,

Radius of outer circle = 19 m

Circumference of the inner circle = 2πr

= 2 × 3.14 × 19

= 119.32 m

16. How many times a wheel of radius 28 cm must rotate to go 352 m? (Take π = 22/7)

From the question it is given that,

Radius of the wheel = 28 cm

Circumference of the wheel = 2πr

= 2 × 22/7 × 28

= 2 × 22 × 4

= 176 cm

Now we have to find the number of rotation of the wheel,

= Total distance to be covered/ circumference of wheel

= 352 m/176 cm

= 35200 cm/ 176 cm

= 200

17. The minute hand of a circular clock is 15 cm long. How far does the tip of the minute hand move in 1 hour. (Take π = 3.14)

Solution:-

From the question it is given that,

Then,

Distance travelled by the tip of minute hand in 1 hour = circumference of the clock

= 2πr

= 2 × 3.14 × 15

= 94.2 cm

## 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.
Solution:

Given: Length = 90 m
Breadth = 75 m
Area of the garden = l × b
= 90 m × 75 m = 6750 m2
Length of the garden including path
= 90m + 5m + 5m = 100 m
Breadth of the garden including path
= 75m + 5m + 5m = 85m
Area of the garden including path
= l × b
= 100 m × 85 m = 8500 m2
Area of the path = 8500 m2 – 6750 m2 = 1750 m2
Hence, required area of path = 1750 m2 and area of the garden = 6750 m2 = 0.675 ha

Ex 11.4 Class 7 Maths 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.

Solution:
Length of the park = 125 m
Breadth of the park = 65 m
Area of the park = l × b
= 125 m × 65 m = 8125 m2

Length of the park including path
= 125 m + 3m + 3m = 131 m
Breadth of the park including path
= 65m + 3m + 3m = 71m
Area of the park including path
= 131 m × 71 m = 9301 m2
∴ Area of the path
= 9301 m2 – 8125 m2 = 1176 m2
Hence, the required area = 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.
Solution:

Length = 8 cm, breadth = 5 cm
Area of the cardboard = l × b
= 8 cm × 5 cm = 40 cm2
Width of the margin = 1.5 cm
Length of the inner cardboard
= 8 cm – 1.5 × 2 cm
= 8 cm – 3 cm = 5 cm
Breadth of the inner cardboard
= 5 cm – 1.5 × 2 cm
= 5 cm – 3 cm = 2 cm
Area of the inner rectangle = l × b
= 5 cm × 2 cm = 10 cm2 Area of the margin
= 40 cm2 – 10 cm2 = 30 cm2
Hence, the required area = 30 cm2.

Question 4.
A verandah of 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.
Solution:

Length of the room = 5.5 m
Breadth of the room = 4 m
∴ Area of the room = l × b = 5.5 m × 4 m = 22 m2
Width of the verandah = 2.25 m
Length of the room including verandah
= 5.5 m + 2 × 2.25 m = 10 m
Breadth of the room including verandah
= 4 m + 2 × 2.25 m = 8.50 m2
Area of the room including verandah = l × b
= 10 m × 8.50 m = 85 m2
(i) Area of the verandah = 85 m2 – 22 m2
= 63 m2
(ii) Cost of cementing the floor of the verandah = Rs. 63 × 200 = 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.
Solution:

Area of the square garden = (Side)2
= 30 m × 30 m = 900 m2
Length of the garden excluding the path = 30 m – 2 × 1 m = 28 m
∴ Area of the garden excluding the path = 28 m × 28 m = 784 m2
(i) Area of the path = 900 m2 – 784 m2
= 116 m2
(ii) Cost of the planting the remaining portion at the rate of Rs. 40 per m2
= Rs. 40 × 784 =Rs. 31,360

Question 6.
Two cross roads, each of width 10 m, cut a 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.
Solution:

Length of the road parallel to the length of the park = 700 m
Width of the road = 10 m
∴ Area of the road = l × b = 700 m × 10 m = 7000 m2
Length of the road parallel to the breadth of the park = 300 m
Width of the road = 10 m Area of this road = l × b = 300 m × 10 = 3000 m2
Area of the both roads
= 7000 m2 + 3000 m2 – Area of the common portion
= 10,000 m2 – 10 m × 10 m
= 10,000 m2 – 100 m2
= 9900 m2 = 0.99 ha
Area of the park = l × b
= 700 m × 300 m = 210000 m2
Area of the park excluding the roads
= 210000 m2 – 9900 m2
= 200100 m2 = 20.01 ha

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 of the rate of Rs. 110 per m2.
Solution:

Length of the road along the length of the field = 90 m
Breadth = 3 m
∴ Area of this road = l × b
= 90 m × 3 m = 270 m2
Similarly, the area of the road parallel to the breadth of the field = l × b
= 60 m × 3 m = 180 m2 Area of the common portion
= 3m × 3m = 9m2
(i) Area of the two roads
= 270 m2 + 180 m2 – 9 m2
= 450 m2 – 9 m2 = 441 m2
(ii) Cost of constructing the roads
= Rs. 110 × 441 = Rs. 48,510

Question 8.
Pragya wrapped a card around a circular pipe of radius 4 cm 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)

Solution:
Length of the cord = Circumference of the circular pipe
= 2πr = 2 × 3.14 × 4 = 25.12 cm
Perimeter of the square box
= 4 × side = 4 × 4 cm = 16 cm
Length of the cord left
= 25.12 cm – 16 cm = 9.12 cm
Yes, 9.12 cm cord is left.

Question 9.
The given 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.

Solution:
(i) Length of the lawn = 10 m
Breadth of the lawn = 5 m
Area of the lawn = l × b
= 10 m × 5 m = 50 m2
(ii) Area of the circular flower bed = πr2
22/7 x 2 x 2 = 88/7 m

= 12.57 m2
(iii) Area of the lawn excluding the area of the flower bed

Question 10.
In the following figures, find the area of the shaded portion.

Solution:
(i) Area of the rectangle = l × b
= 18 cm × (6 cm + 4 cm)
= 18 cm × 10 cm = 180 cm2
Area of right triangle

=12×b×h=12×6×10=30 cm2
Area of right ∆BCE = 12 × b × h
= 12 × 8 × 10 =40 cm2
Area of the two right triangles
= 30 cm2 + 40 cm2 = 70 cm2
Area of the shaded portion
= 180 cm2 – 70 cm2 = 110 cm2
(ii) Area of the square PQRS = (Side)2
= (20)2 = 400 cm2

Area of the three triangles
= 50 cm2 + 100 cm2 + 100 cm2 = 250 cm2
Area of the shaded portion
= 400 cm2 – 250 cm2 = 150 cm2

Question 11.
Find the area of the quadrilateral ABCD. Here, AC = 22 cm, BM = 3 cm, DN = 3 cm, and BM ⊥ AC, DN ⊥ AC.

Area of the quadrilateral ABCD
= Area of ∆ABC + Area of ∆ADC
= 33 cm2 + 33 cm2 = 66 cm2
Hence, the required area = 66 cm2
