Q:

A parallelogram has sides 30m and 14m and one of its diagonals is 40m long. Then its area is

A) 136 B) 236
C) 336 D) 436
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 336

Explanation:

let ABCD be the given parallelogram 

area of parallelogram ABCD = 2 x (area of triangle ABC) 

now a = 30m, b = 14m and c = 40m

 s=1/2 x (30+14+40) = 42 

 

Area of triangle ABC = ss-as-bs-c  

 

= 4212282= 168sq m 

area of parallelogram ABCD = 2 x 168 = 336 sq m

At what time between 5 and 6 o' clock are the hands of a 3 minutes apart ?

A) 24min B) 12min
C) 13min D) 14min
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 24min

Explanation:

In this type of problems the formuae is
(5*x+ or - t)*12/11
Here x is replaced by the first interval of given time. Here x is 5.
t is spaces apart

  Case 1 : (5*x + t) * 12/11

 (5*5 + 3) * 12/11

 28 * 12/11 = 336/11= 31511 min

therefore the hands will be 3 min apart at 31 5/11 min past 5.

Case 2 : (5*x - t) * 12/11

(5*5 -3 ) * 12/11

 22 *12/11 = 24 min 

 therefore the hands will be 3 min apart at 24 min past 5
