Q:

If each side of a square is increased by 25%, find the percentage change in its area?

A) 65.25 B) 56.25
C) 65 D) 56

Answer:   B) 56.25



Explanation:

let each side of the square be a , then area = a2 

As given that The side is increased by 25%, then 

New side = 125a/100 = 5a/4 

 

New area = 5a42  

 

Increased area= 25a216-a2 

 

Increase %=9a2/16a2*100  % = 56.25%

Q:

Find the area of the trapezium, whose parallel sides are 12 cm and 10 cm, and distance between the parallel sides is 14 cm?

A) 121 sq.com B) 154 sq.com
C) 186 sq.com D) 164 sq.com
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 154 sq.com

Explanation:

We know that, 

Area of trapezium = 1/2 x (Sum of parallel sides) x (Distance between Parallel sides)

= 1/2 x (12 + 10) x 14

= 22 x 14/2

= 22 x 7

= 154 sq. cm

Q:

The length and the breadth of rectangular field are in the ratio of 8 : 7. If charges of the painting the boundary of rectangle is at Rs. 10 per meter is Rs. 3000. What is the area of rectangular plot?

A) 5600 sq.m B) 1400 sq. m
C) 4400 sq.m D) 3600 sq.m
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 5600 sq.m

Explanation:

Perimeter of the rectangle is given by 3000/10 = 300 mts

But we know,

The Perimeter of the rectangle = 2(l + b)

Now,

2(8x + 7x) = 300

30x = 300

x = 10

Required, Area of rectangle = 8x x 7x = 56 x 100 = 5600 sq. mts.

Q:

The perimeter of a rectangle whose length is 6 m more than its breadth is 84 m. What will be the area of the rectangle?

A) 333 sq.mts B) 330 sq.mts
C) 362 sq.mts D) 432 sq.mts
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 432 sq.mts

Explanation:

Let the breadth of the rectangle = b mts

Then Length of the rectangle = b + 6 mts

Given perimeter = 84 mts

2(L + B) = 84 mts

2(b+6 + b) = 84

2(2b + 6) = 84

4b + 12 = 84

4b = 84 - 12

4b = 72

b = 18 mts

=> Length = b + 6 = 18 + 6 = 24 mts

 

Now, required Area of the rectangle = L x B = 24 x 18 = 432 sq. mts

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.
