Q1. Shankar wants a lawn to be developed in a corner of his square plot. He gave following three options to the lawndeveloper:
The lawn developing rate is Rs 150 per sq. m and the lawn under optionIII was developed, however, Shankar paid for the option having largest area. The lawndeveloper realized the mistake and refunded the balance back to Shankar.
(a) Find the area in each of the above three options.
(b) What amount was refunded back to Shankar by the lawndeveloper?
(c) Which mathematical concept is used in above problem?
(d) Refunding the difference, which value is depicted by the lawndeveloper?
Sol. (a) Area of lawn in optionI = 1/4 (πr^{2})
Area of lawn in optionII = 7 × 7 m^{2} = 49 m^{2}
Area of lawn in optionIII =
(b) ∵ Largest area of the lawn = 49 m2
Cost of lawndeveloping in optionII = Rs 150 × 49 = Rs 7350
∵ Area of lawn in optionIII = 24.5 m2
∴ Cost of lawndeveloping in optionIII
⇒ Amount refunded back by the lawndeveloper = Rs 7350 – Rs 3675 = Rs 3675
(c) Areas related to plane surfaces.
(d) Honesty
Q2. Shivram has a piece of land in the form of sector OBPQ adjoining to a temple. He donates a part of it to the temple such that a square plot OABC is left with him.
If OA = 20 m. Then,
(a) Find the area of the shaded region (donated to the temple). [use π = 3.14]
(b) Which mathematical concept is used in above problem?
(c) By donating land to a temple by Shivram, which value is depicted?
Sol. (a) ∵ OABC is a square and OA = 20 m
∴ Diagonal OB of the square OABC
⇒ Radius of the quadrant OPBQ =
⇒ Area of the quadrant OPBQ
Also, area of square OABC = 20 × 20 m^{2} = 400 m^{2}
∴ Area of the shaded region = [Area of the quadrant OPBQ] – [Area of the square OABC]
= 628 m^{2} – 400 m^{2} = 228 m^{2}
Thus, area of the land donated to the temple = 228 m^{2}
(b) Related to circles
(c) Charity.
Q3. Rajat has a piece of land in the shape of a rectangle with two semicircles on its smaller sides, as diameters, added to its outside. The sides of the rectangle are 36 m and 21 m. He lets out the two semicircular parts at the rate of Rs 100 per sq. metre and donates the proceeds to an orphanage.
(a) Find the total area of his land. [use π = 22/7]
(b) What amount does he donate to orphanage?
(c) Which mathematical concept is used in the above problem?
(d) By donating the rent proceeds to an orphanage which value is depicted by Rajat?
Sol. (a) Area of the rectangular part = 36 × 24.5 m^{2}
Area of both the semicircular parts =
∴ Area of Rajat’s total land = 882 m^{2} + 1386 m^{2} = 2268 m^{2}
(b) ∴ Rent rate = Rs 100 per m^{2}
∴ Total rent = Rs 1386 × 100 = Rs 1,38,600
⇒ Amount donated to orphanage by Rajat = Rs 1,38,600
(c) Areas related to circles
Q4. Rajesh has a circular plot of radius 105m. He donates a 7m wide track along its boundary for communitytrack.
(a) Find the area of the track. [use π = 22/7]
(b) Which mathematical concept is used in the above problem?
(c) By donating a communitytrack, which value is depicted by Rajesh?
Sol. (a) Radius of the total circular plot = 105 m
∴ Area of the total circular plot = π (105)^{2} sq. m
∴ Width of the track = 7 m
∴ Radius of the circular plot excluding the track
= 105 m – 7 m = 98 m
⇒ Area of the inner circular plot = π (98)^{2} sq. m.
Now, area of the track = [Area of total circular plot] – [Area of inner circular plot]
= π (105)^{2} – π (98)^{2} sq. m
= π [105^{2} – 98^{2}] sq. m
= π [(105 – 98) (105 + 98)] sq. m
[using a^{2} – b^{2} = (a–b) (a+b)]
= π [7 × 203] sq. m
= 22 × 203 sq. m
= 4466 sq. m
(b) Areas related to circles
(c) Community service
