(B) 128 cm2

Solution

Area of square =a2 Diagonal of square = Diameter of circle

Diagonal of square =8 2 =16cm

Let the side of the square = a cm

Using Pythagoras theorem in ABC

(16)2=a2+a2

2a2=256

a2=128

Area of square ABCD= a2

=128 cm2

#### The area of the circle that can be inscribed in a square of side 6 cm is(A) 36 cm2               (B) 18 cm2               (C) 12 cm2               (D) 9 cm2

(D) 9  cm2

Solution Diameter of circle (d) = 6 cm

Area =            (area of circle = πr2)

Solution

Diameter of first circle (D) = 16 m

Area =

Diameter of second circle (d) = 12 m

Area =

Let radius of new park = R1

Area =

According to question

R = – 10 is not possible because Radius must be positive.

#### If the perimeter of a circle is equal to that of a square, then the ratio of their areas is(A) 22 : 7                    (B) 14 : 11                     (C) 7 : 22                    (D) 11: 14

Solution

According to question

(Because perimeter of circle = 2πr   Perimeter of square =4 side)

(here side of square =a)

(Using area of square = a2)

Hence ratio of their areas is 14: 11

(A)  square unit

Solution Base of triangle = diameter of triangle

= 2 x r

Height of triangle = r

#### If the circumference of a circle and the perimeter of a square are equal, then(A) Area of the circle = Area of the square(B) Area of the circle > Area of the square(C) Area of the circle < Area of the square(D) Nothing definite can be said about the relation between the areas of thecircle and square.

(B) Area of the circle > Area of the square

Solution

circumference of a circle=

Let the radius of the circle = r

perimeter of a square =

let the side of a square = a

According to question

circumference of a circle = perimeter of a square

And

Hence Area of the circle > Area of the square.

• Faculty Support #### If the sum of the circumferences of two circles with radii R1 and R2 is equal to the circumference of a circle of radius R, then(A) R1 +R2=R        (B) R1 +R2>R        (C) R1 +R2<R         (D) Nothing definite can be said about the relationamong R1, R2 and R.

(A) R1 + R2=R

Solution

circumference of first circle =2πR1

circumference of second circle =2πR2

Radius of third circle = R

circumference of third circle=2πR

According to question

2πR1 + 2πR2=2πR

2π(R1 + R2)=2πR

R1 + R2=R

Hence option A is correct.

#### If the sum of the areas of two circles with radii R1 and R2 is equal to the area of a circle of radius R, then(A) R1 + R2 =R   (B) R12 + R22=R2  (C) R1 + R2 <R (D)R12 + R22<R2

(B) R12 + R22=R2

Solution

Area of first circle =πR12

Area of second circle =πR22

Radius of third circle = R

Area of third circle=πR2

According to question

πR12 + πR22=πR2

π(R12 + R22)=πR2

R12 + R22=R2

Hence option B is correct.
