Q:

If the radius of a circle is decreased by 50%, find the percentage decrease in its area.

A) 55% B) 65%
C) 75% D) 85%

Answer:   C) 75%



Explanation:

Let original radius = R. 

 

New radius = 50100R50100R 

 

Original area =R2  and new area = πR2

 

3πR24*1πR2*100 

 

Decrease in area = πR22=πR24 = 75%

Q:

Find the area of the square whose side is equal to the diagonal of a rectangle of length 3 cm and breadth 4 cm. 

A) 25 sq.cm B) 16 sq.cm
C) 9 sq.cm D) 4 sq.cm
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 25 sq.cm

Explanation:

Given length of the rectangle = 3 cm

Breadth of the rectangle = 4 cm

Then, the diagonal of the rectangle D = 32 + 42 = 25 = 5

Then, it implies side of square = 5 cm

We know that Area of square = S x S = 5 x 5 = 25 sq.cm.

Q:

The length of a class room floor exceeds its breadth by 25 m. The area of the floor remains unchanged when the length is decreased by 10 m but the breadth is increased by 8 m. The area of the floor is 

A) 5100 sq.m B) 4870 sq.m
C) 4987 sq.m D) 4442 sq.m
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 5100 sq.m

Explanation:

Let the breadth of floor be 'b' m.

Then, length of the floor is 'l = (b + 25)'

Area of the rectangular floor = l x b = (b + 25) × b

According to the question,

(b + 15) (b + 8) = (b + 25) × b

b2 + 8b + 15b + 120 = b2 + 25b

2b = 120

b = 60 m.

l = b + 25 = 60 + 25 = 85 m.

 

Area of the floor = 85 × 60 = 5100 sq.m.

Q:

A circular piece of thin wire is converted into a rhombus of side 11 cm. Find the diameter of the circular piece?

A) 28 cm B) 3.5 cm
C) 7 cm D) 14 cm
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 14 cm

Explanation:

Circular piece is 4 x 11 = 44 cm long,

Then Circumference of circle is given by,

44 = pi x D, where D is the diameter

D = 44 / pi

Take pi = 22 / 7, then

D = 44 / (22/7) = (44 x 7) / 22

D = 14 cm.

Q:

The area of a square is equal to the area of a rectangle. The length of the rectangle is 5 cm more than a side of the square and its breadth is 3 cm less than the side of the square. What is the perimeter of the rectangle ? 

A) 15 cm B) 18 cm
C) 34 cm D) 26 cm
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 34 cm

Explanation:

Let the side of the square be 's' cm

 

length of rectangle = (s+5) cm

 

breadth of rectangle = (s-3)cm

 

(s+5) (s-3) = 

 

s2 - 5s - 3s - 15 = s2 

 

2s = 15

 

Perimeter of rectangle = 2(L+B) = 2(s+5 + s–3) = 2(2s + 2)

 

= 2(15 + 2) = 34 cm

Q:

Area of a square and a rectangle are equal. If side of the square is 40 cm and length of the rectangle is 64 cm, what is the perimeter of the rectangle ?

A) 187 cm B) 178 cm
C) 149 cm D) 194 cm
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 178 cm

Explanation:

Area of square = 40 x 40

= 1600 sq.cm

Given that the areas of Square and Rectangle are equal

=> Area of rectangle = 1600 Sq.cm

We know that, Area of rectangle = L x B

Given L = 64 cm

Breadth of rectangle = 1600/64 = 25 cm

Perimeter of the rectangle = 2(L + B) = 2(64+25) = 178 cm.
