### Chapter 11 Perimeter and Area Exercise 11.1

**Question 1.**

The length and the breadth of a rectangular piece of land are 500 m and 300 m respectively. Find

**(i)** its area

**(ii)** the cost of the land if 1 m^{2} of the land costs ₹ 10,000.

**Solution:
**

**(i)**For a rectangular piece of land,

Length = 500 m

Breadth = 300 m

∴ Area of the rectangular piece of land = Length × Breadth , = 500 × 300 m

^{2}= 150,000 m

^{2}

**(ii)** 1 m^{2} of the land costs = ₹ 10,000

∵ 150,000 m^{2} of the land costs = ₹ 10,000 × 150,000 = ₹ 1,500,000,000.

**Question 2.**

Find the area of a square park whose perimeter is 320 m.

**Solution:**

We have, perimeter of a square park = 320 m

∴ Side of the square park = ([late×]\frac { 320 }{ 4 } [/late×]) m = 80 m

∴ Area of square park = (Side)^{2 }= (80)^{2} m^{2} = 6400 m^{2}

From a circular sheet of radius 4 cm, a circle of radius 3 cm is removed. Find the area of the remaining sheet. (Take π = 3.14)

**Solution:**

Here, Outer radius, r = 4 cm

Inner radius, r = 3 cm

Area of the remaining sheet = Outer area – Inner area

= π (R^{2} – r^{2}) = 3.14 (4^{2} – 3^{2}) cm^{2}

= 3.14 (16 – 9) cm^{2}

= 3.14 × 7 cm^{2} = 21.98 cm^{2}

**Question 11.**

A circle of radius 2 cm is cut out from a square piece of an aluminium sheet of side 6 cm. What is the area of the left over aluminium sheet? (Take π = 3.14)

**Solution:**

Area of the square aluminium sheet = (6)^{2} cm^{2} = 36 cm^{2}

Area of the circle cut out from the sheet = (3.14 × 2 × 2) cm^{2} = 12.56 cm^{2}

Area of the sheet left over = (36 – 12.56) cm^{2} = 23.44 cm^{2}

**Question 14.**

A circular flower garden has an area of 314 m^{2}. A sprinkler at the centre of the garden can cover an area that has a radius of 12 m. Will the sprinkler water the entire garden? (Take π = 3.14)

**Solution:**

Circular area of the sprinkler = πr^{2}

= 3.14 × 12 × 12

=3.14 × 144 = 452.16 m^{2}

Area of the circular flower garden = 314 m^{2}

Since, area of the circular flower garden is smaller than by sprinkler. Therefore, the sprinkler will water the entire garden.
