**Q1. Find the area of the quadrilateral ABCD in which AB = 3 cm, BC = 4 cm, CD = 4 cm, DA = 5 cm and AC = 5 cm.**

**Solution:**

For triangle ABC

AC^{2} = BC^{2}+AB^{2}

25 = 9 + 16

So, triangle ABC is a right angle triangle right angled at point R

Area of triangle ABC =

= 6 cm^{2}

From triangle CAD

Perimeter = 2s = AC + CD + DA

2s = 5 cm+ 4 cm+ 5 cm

2s = 14 cm

s = 7 cm

By using Heronâ€™s Formula

Area of the triangle CAD

= 9.16cm2

Area of ABCD = Area of ABC + Area of CAD

= (6+9.16) cm^{2}

= 15.16cm^{2}

**Q2. The sides of a quadrilateral field, taken in order are 26 m, 27 m, 7 m, 24 m respectively. The angle contained by the last two sides is a right angle. Find its area.**

**Solution:**

Here the length of the sides of the quadrilateral is given as

AB = 26 m, BC = 27 m, CD = 7 m, DA = 24 m

Diagonal AC is joined.

Now, in triangle ADC

By applying Pythagoras theorem

AC^{2} = AD^{2}+CD^{2}

AC^{2} = 142+72

AC = 25 m

Now area of triangle ABC

Perimeter = 2s = AB + BC + CA

2s = 26 m + 27 m + 25 m

s = 39 m

By using Heronâ€™s Formula

The area of a triangle

= 291.84m^{2}

Thus, the area of a triangle is 291.84m^{2}

Now for area of triangle ADC

Perimeter = 2s = AD + CD + AC

= 25 m + 24 m + 7 m

s = 28 m

By using Heronâ€™s Formula

The area of a triangle

= 84m^{2}

Thus, the area of a triangle is 84m^{2}

Therefore, Area of rectangular field ABCD

= Area of triangle ABC + Area of triangle ADC

= 291.84 + 84

= 375.8 m^{2}

**Q3. The sides of a quadrilateral, taken in order as 5 m, 12 m, 14 m, 15 m respectively, and the angle contained by first two sides is a right angle. Find its area.**

**Solution:**

Given that the sides of the quadrilateral are

AB = 5 m, BC = 12 m, CD =14 m and DA = 15 m

Join AC

Now area of triangle ABC

= 30 m^{2}

In triangle ABC, By applying Pythagoras theorem

AC = 13 m

Now in triangle ADC,

Perimeter = 2s = AD + DC + AC

2s = 15 m +14 m +13 m

s = 21 m

By using Heronâ€™s Formula,

Area of the triangle PSR =

= 84m^{2}

Area of quadrilateral ABCD = Area of triangle ABC + Area of triangle ADC

= (30 + 84) m^{2}

= 114m^{2}

*Q4. A park in the shape of a quadrilateral ABCD, has angle C = 90 ^{0}, AB = 9 m, BC = 12 m, CD = 5 m, AD = 8 m. How much area does it occupy?*

**Solution:**

Given sides of a quadrilateral are AB = 9 m, BC = 12 m, CD = 5 m, DA = 8 m.

Let us join BD

In triangle BCD , apply Pythagoras theorem

BD^{2} = BC^{2}+CD^{2}

BD^{2} = 12^{2}+5^{2}

BD = 13 m

Area of triangle BCD =

= 30 m^{2}

Now, in triangle ABD

Perimeter = 2s = 9 m + 8m + 13m

s = 15 m

By using Heronâ€™s Formula,

Area of the triangle ABD =

= 35.49m^{2}

Area of quadrilateral ABCD = Area of triangle ABD + Area of triangle BCD

= (35.496 + 30) m^{2}

= 65.5m^{2}.

**Q5. Two parallel sides of a trapezium are 60 m and 77 m and the other sides are 25 m and 26 m. Find the area of the trapezium?**

**Solution:**

Given,

Two parallel sides of trapezium are AB = 77 m and CD = 60 m

The other two parallel sides of trapezium are BC = 26 m, AD = 25m

Join AE and CF

DE is perpendicular to AB and also, CF is perpendicular to AB

Therefore, DC = EF = 60 m

Let AE = x

So, BF = 77 â€“ 60 â€“ x

BF = 17 â€“ x

In triangle ADE,

By using Pythagoras theorem,

DE^{2} = AD2âˆ’AE^{2}

DE2 = 25^{2}âˆ’x^{2}

In triangle BCF,

By using Pythagoras theorem,

CF^{2} = BC^{2}âˆ’BF^{2}

CF^{2} = 26^{2}âˆ’(17âˆ’x)^{2}

Here, DE = CF

So, DE^{2} = CF^{2}

25^{2}âˆ’x^{2} = 26^{2}âˆ’(17âˆ’x)^{2}

252âˆ’x^{2} = 26^{2}âˆ’(17^{2}âˆ’34x+x^{2})

25^{2}âˆ’x^{2} = 26^{2}âˆ’17^{2}+34x+x^{2}

25^{2} = 26^{2}âˆ’17^{2}+34x

x = 7

DE = 24 m

Area of trapezium

Area of trapezium = 1644m^{2}

**Q6. Find the area of a rhombus whose perimeter is 80 m and one of whose diagonal is 24 m.**

**Solution:**

Given,

Perimeter of a rhombus = 80 m

As we know,

Perimeter of a rhombus = 4Ã—side = 4Ã—a

4Ã—a = 80 m

a = 20 m

Let AC = 24 m

Therefore OA

OA = 12 m

In triangle AOB

OB^{2} = AB^{2}âˆ’OA^{2}

OB^{2} = 20^{2}âˆ’12^{2}

OB = 16 m

Also, OB = OD because diagonal of rhombus bisect each other at 90^{âˆ˜}

Therefore, BD = 2 OB = 2 x 16 = 32 m

Area of rhombus

Area of rhombus

Area of rhombus = 384 m^{2}

**Q7. A rhombus sheet, whose perimeter is 32 m and whose diagonal is 10 m long, is painted on both the sides at the rate of Rs 5 per meter square. Find the cost of painting.**

**Solution:**

Given that,

Perimeter of a rhombus = 32 m

We know that,

Perimeter of a rhombus = 4Ã—side

4Ã—side = 32 m

4Ã—a = 32 m

a = 8 m

Let AC = 10 m

By using Pythagoras theorem

OB2 = AB^{2}â€“OA^{2}

OB^{2} = 8^{2}â€“5^{2}

Area of the sheet

Area of the sheet

Therefore, cost of printing on both sides at the rate of Rs. 5 per m^{2}

= Rs. 625
