Q:

If the diagonal of a rectangle is 17cm long and its perimeter is 46 cm. Find the area of the rectangle.

 A) 110 B) 120 C) 130 D) 140

Explanation:

let length = x and breadth = y then

2(x+y) = 46         =>   x+y = 23

x²+y² = 17² = 289

now (x+y)² = 23²

=> x²+y²+2xy= 529

=> 289+ 2xy = 529

=> xy = 120

area = xy = 120 sq.cm

Answer & Explanation Answer: B) Dispersion of light

Explanation:

A clear cloudless day-time sky is blue because molecules in the air dissipate blue light from the sun more than they dissipate red light. When we look towards the sun at sunset, we see red and orange hues on the grounds because the blue light has been scattered out and away from the line of sight.

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%

Explanation:

Let original radius = R.

New radius = $50100R$$50100R$

Original area =$R2$  and new area = $πR2$

$3πR24*1πR2*100$

Decrease in area = $πR22=πR24$ = 75%
