**Perimeter and Area Exercise 20.1 Solution :**

**Question no – (1) **

**Solution : **

The area of rectangular park = 240 m²

Its breadth = 15 m

**∴** length = 240/15 m

= 16 m

As we know that,

Perimeter of rectangle = 2 (length + breadth)

**∴** Perimeter,

= 2 (16 + 15)

= 2 × 31 m

= 62 m

Therefore, the perimeter of the park will be 62 m,

**Question no – (2) **

**Solution : **

Square shaped garden side = 13 ft.

Cost of fencing = Rs 100 per foot.

**∴** 1st perimeter of garden,

= (13 × 4) …..(Perimeter of square = (4 × side)

= 52 ft.

**∴** Now total cost of fencing,

= (52 × 100)

= 5200 Rs.

Therefore, the cost of fencing the garden will be 5200 Rs.

**Question no – (3) **

**Solution : **

Area of shaded region,

= (12)² – (6)²

= 144 – 36

= 108 cm²

Therefore, the area of shaded region will be 108 cm².

**Question no – (4)**

**Solution : **

The area of the rectangle is = 22.5 cm²

Length of the rectangle is = 7.5 cm

Breadth of the rectangle is,

= 22.5/7.5 cm

= 3 cm.

**∴** Perimeter of the figure,

= 2 (7.5 + 3) …..2 (length + breadth)

= 2 × 10.5

= 21 cm

Therefore, the perimeter of the given figure will be 21 cm.

**Question no – (5) **

**Solution : **

Area of field = 1200 cm²

**∴** 1/2 × x × 3x/2 = 1200

= 3x²/4 = 1200

= 3x² = 4800

= x² = 4800/3

= x = 1600

= x = 40 cm

**∴ **Base = 40 cm

**Perimeter and Area Exercise 20.2 Solution :**

**Question no – (1) **

**Solution : **

**(a) Perimeter, = 2 (length + Breadth)**

= 2 (7 + 4)

= (2 × 11)

= 22 m

Therefore, the perimeter of the given figure will be 22 m.

**(b)** Perimeter, = (4 × sides)

= (4 × 9)

= 36 cm.

Hence, the perimeter of the given figure will be 36 cm.

**(c)** Perimeter, = 2 (length + breadth)

= 2 (14 + 4)

= 2 × 21

= 42 cm

Thus, the perimeter of the given figure will be 42 cm.

**(d)** Perimeter, = (4 × sides)

= (4 × 11) m

= 44 m

Therefore, the perimeter of the given figure will be 44 m.

**Question no – (2) **

**Solution : **

As we know that,

Perimeter of triangle = Side + Side + Side (Sum of 3 sides)

**(a)** Perimeter,

= (5 + 6 4 cm

= 15 cm.

So, the perimeter of the given figure will be 15 cm.

**(b)** Perimeter,

= (3 × 5) cm ∵ (three sides are same)

= 15 cm.

Thus, the perimeter of the given figure will be 15 cm.

**(c)** Perimeter,

= (2 × 30 + 60) ∵ (two sides are same)

= (60 + 60)

= 120 mm

Hence, the perimeter of the given figure will be 120 mm.

**Question no – (3) **

**Solution : **

**(a)** Parallelogram,

Length = 15 cm

Breadth = 6 cm

**∴ **Perimeter,

= (2 × 15 + 2 × 6)

= (30 + 12) cm

= 42 cm.

Therefore, the perimeter will be 42 cm.

**(b)** Rhombus,

Length = 7 cm.

**∴** Perimeter,

= (4 × 7)

= 28 cm

Therefore, the perimeter will be 28 cm.

**Question no – (4) **

**Solution : **

**(a)** Perimeter = 85 cm

Side length = 18 cm and 36 cm

**∴** Missing side length,

= 85 – (36 +18) cm

= 85 – 54 cm

= 31 cm.

Therefore, the length of the missing side will be 31 cm.

**(b)** Perimeter = 76 cm

One side length = 46 cm

**∴** Missing both side length,

= (76 – 46) / 2

= 30/2

= 15 cm

Therefore, the length of the both missing side will be 15 cm.

**Question no – (5) **

**Solution : **

Kennel base dimensions = 10 m by 4 m

**∴** Perimeter,

= 2( 10 + 4) m

= (2 × 14) m

= 28 m

Therefore, Julie will required 28 metre fencing.

**Question no – (6) **

**Solution : **

1st we need to find the perimeter of the park,

(Perimeter of square = 4 × side)

Perimeter of the square park,

= (4 × 600)

= 2400 m

In 2 round distance cover,

= (2 × 2400) m

= 4800 m

= 4.8 km.

Therefore, Vivek will cover 4.8 km.

**Question no – (7)**

**Solution : **

Given, Perimeter is = 17.28 m

Let, side = a

**∴** 3a = 17.28

= 17.28/3

= a = 5.76 m

Therefore, length of the each side will be 5.76 m.

**Question no – (8) **

**Solution : **

Given, Parallelogram,

Length = 14 m

Breadth = 7 m

**∴ **Perimeter of parallelogram,

= (2 × length + 2 × breadth)

= (2 × 14 + 2 × 7)

= (28 + 14) m

= 42 m

Therefore, the perimeter of the parallelogram will be 42 m.

**Perimeter and Area Exercise 20.3 Solution :**

**Question no – (1) **

**Solution : **

**(a)** Given, Base = 25ft

Height = 16.25 ft.

**∴** Area of the parallelogram,

= (25 × 16.25) ft²

= 406.25 ft²

Therefore, the area will be 406.25 ft²

**(b)** Given, Base = 20 cm

Height = 0.75 m

**∴** Area of the parallelogram,

= (20 × 75) cm²

= 1500 cm²

Therefore, the are will be 1500 cm².

**Question no – (2) **

**Solution : **

Given, Perimeter of a rectangular garden = 326 sq. ft

Its length is = 101 ft.

**∴** Breadth of the garden,

= 2 (length + breadth) = 326

= length + breadth = 326/2

= 163

Breadth = 163 – l

= (163 – 101) ft

= 62 ft.

Therefore, the breadth of the garden will be 62 ft.

**Question no – (3) **

**Solution : **

1st, we need to find perimeter,

Perimeter = 252/4.50

= 56 m

**∴** 4 × side = 56

= Side = 56/4

= 14 m

Now, area,

= (14)² m²

= 196 m²

Therefore, the length will be 14 m and area will be 196m².

**Question no – (4) **

**Solution : **

Given, Cost of flooring = 3500

The length of the hall = 40 m

Rate of the flooring is = 3.50 Rs.

Now, Area,

= 3500/3.50

= 1000 sq. m

**∴** (length × breadth) = 1000

= (40 × b) = 1000

= 40 × b = 1000

= b = 1000 ÷ 40

= 25 m

Therefore, the breadth of the hall will be 25m and area will be 1000 sq. m.

**Question no – (5) **

**Solution : **

Square area = 625 sq. m

**∴** a² = 625

= a = √625

= a = 25 m

**∴** Side of square = 25 m.

**∴** Perimeter of square = 4 × 25

= 100 m

Now, breadth of square,

= 2 (32 + b) = 100

= 32 + b = 50

= b = 50 – 32

= b = 18 m

Therefore, the area of the square will be 25 m, and breadth will be 18 m.

**Question no – (6) **

**Solution : **

As we know that,

Area of triangle = (1/2 × b × h) × 3

**∴** Area of triangle,

= (1/2 × 3 × 4) × 3

= 18 cm²

Now, Area of rectangle,

= (18 × 7) cm² ∵ (Area of rectangle = Length × Breadth)

= 126 cm²

Now, Area of shaded region,

= (126 – 18) cm²

= 108 cm²

**Question no – (7) **

**Solution : **

Area of triangle ABC = 1/2 × 3 × 7.5

= 52.5 = 7.5 b/2

= b = 52.5 × 2/7.5

= b = 14 cm

**∴** h = 7.5 cm

Now, New, triangle of DBC

= 1/2 × (14 × 4.5)

= 31.5 cm²

Therefore, the area of triangle DBC will be 31.5 cm².

**Question no – (9)**

**Solution : **

Let, one side = a

And another = 2.5 a

**∴** Perimeter = 70

= 2 (2.5 a + 1a) = 70

= 7a = 70

= a = 70/7

= a = 10 m

Another side = (2.5 × 10) m²

= 25 m²

Now, Area,

= (25 × 10) m²

= 250 m²

Therefore, its area will be 250 m² and measure of all its sides will be 25 m².

**Question no – (10) **

**Solution : **

The area of right angled triangle is = 84 sq. m

Its base is = 24 cm

And, its hypotenuse is = 25 cm.

**∴** 1/2 × length × 24 = 84

= 24 length = 84 × 2

= length = 84 × 2/24

= 7 cm

Now, the perimeter,

= (7 + 24 + 25) cm

= 56 cm.

Therefore, the perimeter of the right angled triangle will be 56 cm.
