*     Circumference and area of a Circle                  


The boundary of the circle is called circumference.                

Circumference of a circle \[=2\pi r.\]  




Find the circumference of a circle whose diameter is 4.2 cm.                

(a) 11.1 cm                                         

(b) 112.2cm                

(c) 13.3cm                                          

(d) 13.2cm                

(e) None of these                


Answer: (d)                


Diametre of circle = 4.2 cm                

\[\therefore \]Radius of circle = 2.1 cm                

Circumference \[=2\pi r=2\times \frac{22}{7}\times 2.1=2\times 22\times 0.3=13.2cm\]                

Thus the circumference of this circle = 13.2 cm.  





Find the radius of circle whose circumference is 88 m.                

(a) 14m                                                

(b) 15m                

(c) 120m                                              

(d) 25m                

(e) None of these                


Answer: (a)                


Circumference (c) = 88 m                

\[C=27\pi r=88\Rightarrow 2\times \frac{22}{7}\times r=88\]                

Or \[r\frac{7\times 88}{2\times 22}=7\times 2=14\,m\]                

Thus the radius of this circle = 14 m  





Find the area of a rhombus shaped field, whose each of the sides is 14 cm and the altitude is 1.6 dm.                

(a) \[224c{{m}^{2}}\]                                      

(b)  \[214c{{m}^{3}}\]                

(c) \[224{{m}^{2}}\]                                        

(d) \[224c{{m}^{6}}\]                

(e) None of these                                


Answer: (a)                


Base of rhombus = 14 cm                

Altitude = 1.6 dm = 16 cm                

Area of rhombus = Base \[\times \] Altitude                

\[=14\times 16=224c{{m}^{2}}\]                



  How many tiles \[20cm\times 20cm\] each will be required to pave a footpath 1 m wide carried round the outside of a plot \[28\text{ }m\times 18m\]?

(b) 5, 2000                        

(c) 9,900                                              

(d) 5, 250                

(e) None of these                                                                                   


Answer: (a)                                                        


Area of the outer rectangle                

\[=(2,800+2\times 100)\times (1,800+\text{2}\times 100)=3,000\times 2,000\text{ }c{{m}^{2}}\]                


Area of the inner rectangle \[=2,800\times 1,800\,c{{m}^{2}}\]                

Area of the Footpath                

\[=3,000\times 2,000-2,800\times 1,800\text{ }9,60,000\text{ }c{{m}^{2}}\]                

Required number of tiles                

\[=\frac{area\,of\,footpath}{area\,of\,a\,tile}=\frac{9,60,000}{20\times 20}=2,400\]

(b) \[600\text{ }\sqrt{15}\text{ }c{{m}^{2}}\]                

(c) \[650\sqrt{51\,}c{{m}^{2}}\]                                

(d) \[500\text{ }\sqrt{51\,}c{{m}^{2}}\]                

(e) None of these                                


Answer: (b)                



  A wire, when bent in the form of a square, encloses an area of \[484\text{ }c{{m}^{2}}.\] If the same wire is bent in the form of a circle then find the area enclosed by it.                

(a) \[161c{{m}^{2~}}\]                                   

(b) \[616c{{m}^{2}}\]                

(c) \[616\,c{{m}^{2~}}\]                                                

(d) \[916\,c{{m}^{2}}\]                

(e) None of these                


Answer: (c)                


Area of square\[~=484\text{ }c{{m}^{2}}\]                

Side of square \[\sqrt{484}=22cm\]                

Perimeter of square \[=4\times 22\text{ }cm=88\text{ }cm\]                

Let r be the radius of the circle.                

Same wire is bent in the form of a square and circle.                

Therefore, circumference of the circle = perimeter of the square.                

or 2\[2\pi r=88\]                

\[2\frac{22}{7}\times r=88\Rightarrow r=\frac{88\times 7}{2\times 22}=14\,cm\]                

Thus area of circle \[=\pi {{r}^{2}}=\frac{22}{7}\times 14\times 14=616\,c{{m}^{2}}\]                



Semicircular lawns are attached to the edges of a rectangular field measuring \[42\text{ }m\text{ }\times 35m.\] Find the area of the total field. 

(a) \[3895.6{{m}^{2}}~~\]                                             

(b) \[3818.5{{m}^{2}}\]                   

(c) \[3735.6{{m}^{2}}\]                                                  

(d) \[3899.9{{m}^{2}}\]                

(e) None of these                                


Answer: (b)                



Area of lawn = Area of rectangle \[ABCD\text{ }+2\times \]Area of semicircle with diameter \[AB+2\times \]Area of semicircle with diametre BC                

\[=\text{ }Length\times breadth+2\left( \frac{\pi {{R}^{2}}}{2} \right)+2\left( \frac{\pi {{r}^{2}}}{2} \right)\]                

Where R = radius of bigger semicircle                


r = radius of smaller semicircle \[=\frac{35}{2}\,m\]                

Now area of lawn                

\[=42\times 35+\frac{22}{7}\times 21\times 21+\frac{22}{7}\times \frac{35}{2}\times \frac{35}{2}\]

  • Among the mathematician of ancient Indus Valley and ancient Babylonia there were some surprisingly sophisticated principles that was discovered which is hard to derive some of them without the use of calculus by a modern mathematician.
  • Both the Egyptians and the Babylonians were aware of versions of the Pythagorean theorem about 1500 years before Pythagoras; the Egyptians had a correct formula for the volume of a frustum of a square pyramid; the Babylonians had a trigonometry table.
