### A rectangular paper when folded into two congruent parts had a perimeter of 34cm foer each part folded along one set of sides and the same is 38cm. When folded along the other set of sides. What is the area of the paper?

 A) 140 B) 150 C) 160 D) 170

Explanation:

we have 2(l/2 +b) = 34 or l+2b = 34...........(1)
when folded along the length, we have 2(l+b/2)=38 or 2l+b =38.....(2)
from 1 &2 we get l=14 and b=10
Area of the paper = 14*10 = 140 sq cm

### A took 15 seconds to cross a rectangular field diagonally walking at the rate of 52 m/min and B took the same time to cross the same field along its sides walking at the rate of 68m/min. The area of the field is?

 A) 50 B) 60 C) 70 D) 80

Explanation:

length of the diagonal = 52*(15/60) =13m

sum of length and breadth = 68*(15/60) = 17m

$\inline&space;{\color{Black}\sqrt{l^{2}+b^{2}}=13&space;\;&space;or\;&space;l+b=17&space;}$

area =lb = 1/2[(2lb)] = 1/2[(l+b)² - (l²+b²)] = 1/2[17² -169]
=1/2*120 = 60 sq meter

### A room is half as long again as it is broad. The cost of carpeting the at Rs. 5 per sq.m is Rs. 270 and the cost of papering the four walls at Rs. 10 per m2 is Rs. 1720. If a door and 2 windows occupy 8 sq. m, find the dimensions of the room.

 A) b=6;l=18;H=6 B) b=5;l=6;H=18 C) l=6;b=18;H=15 D) l=5;b=18;H=18

Explanation:

Let breadth = x metres, length = 3x metres, height = H metres.

Area of the floor=(Total cost of carpeting)/(Rate) = (270/5)$\inline m^{2}$= 54$\inline m^{2}$

$\inline x\times \frac{3x}{2}=54\; \; \Rightarrow x^{2}=\frac{54\times 2}\; \; \Rightarrow x=6$

So, breadth = 6 m and length =$\inline \frac{3(6)}{2}$ = 9 m.

Now, papered area = (1720/10) $\inline m^{2}$=  172$\inline m^{2}$

Area of 1 door and 2 windows = 8$\inline m^{2}$

Total area of 4 walls = (172 + 8) $\inline m^{2}$ = 180 $\inline m^{2}$

$\inline 2\times (9+6)H=180\; \; \Rightarrow H=6m$

### The ratios of areas of two squares, one having its diagonal double than the other is

 A) 2:1 B) 2:3 C) 3:1 D) 4:1

Explanation:

${\color{Black}ratio=\frac{\frac{1}{2}(2d)^{2}}{\frac{1}{2}d^{2}}&space;=4:1&space;}$
