Two concentric circles form a ring. The inner and outer circumference of the ring are 352/7 m and 528/7m respectively. Find the width of the ring. Solution: Formula of circumference = 2 Pi * radius 2 * 22/7 * radius = 352/7 radius = 8 Formula of circumference = 2 Pi * radius 2 * 22/7 * radius = 528/7 radius = 12 thus width of ring = 12-8 = 4 answer
Four circular cardboard pieces, each of radius 7cm are placed in such a way that each piece touches two other pieces. The area of the space encosed by the four pieces is Solution : area of one circle = (22/7) * 7 * 7 =154 square of on one circle = 14*14 = 196 difference of area : 42 one side 42/4 =10.5 we have 4 cirlces, each has 10.5 cm of space enclosed, so total space enclosed is 42 sq. cm. Answer
A semicircular shaped window has diameter of 63cm. Its perimeter equals Circumference of circle = diameter * 22/7 = 63 * 22/7 = 198 it is semicircle so divide by 2 = 99 add diameter also – to denote one side : 99+63 = 162 cm answer

A rectangular plot measuring 90 meters by 50 meters is to be enclosed by wire fencing. If the poles of the fence are kept 5 meters apart. How many poles will be needed? The total boundary = 2(90+50)= 280 280/5 = 56 so we will need 56 poles
The length of a rectangular plot is 20 meters more than its breadth. If the cost of fencing the plot @ 26.50 per meter is Rs. 5300. What is the length of the plot in meter? Total fencing = 5300/26.5 = 200 2(L+B) = 200 2(B+20+B) = 200 2B+20=100 or B=40 and L=60 so length is 60 meters answer
A rectangular field is to be fenced on three sides leaving a side of 20 feet uncovered. If the area of the field is 680 sq feet, how many feet of fencing will be required? Length = X bredth = 20 20X =680, or X = 34 boundary =2(34+20)=108 but we will not cover one side =108-20=88 feet. Answer
A rectangular paper when folded into two congruent parts had a perimeter of 34cm for each part folded along one set of sides and the same is 38cm. When folded along the other set of sides. What is the area of the paper? When we fold from mid of length = L+2B=34 When we fold from mid of width = 2L+B=38 add them = 3L+3B=72 L+B=24, where L =14, B=10 so area of paper =14*10 =140 answer
A took 15 seconds to cross a rectangular field diagonally walking at the rate of 52 m/min and B took the same time to cross the same field along its sides walking at the rate of 68m/min. The area of the field is? Diagonal = 52*15/60=13 ½ of perimeter=68*15/60=17 X+Y=17 -- 1 st X^2+Y^2 =169 -- 2 nd square of 1 st equation:X^2+Y^2+2XY=289 2XY=120 or XY =60 thus area of field is 60 sq.meter.
The cost of fencing a square field @ Rs. 20 per metre is Rs.10.080.How much will it cost to lay a three meter wide pavement along the fencing inside the field @ Rs. 50 per sq m Boundary = 10.08/.20 = 50.4 one side is 12.6 area : 158.76 area without pavement : (12.6-6)^2= 43.56 pavement = 115.2 cost = 115.2*.5 = Rs. 57.6 answer
Aman walked diagonally across a square plot. Approximately what was the percent saved by not walking along the edges? Let us assume that the side of square is 1. had he walked along edges, he would have travelled 2. he walked on diagonal so he walked sqrt(2) = 1.41 thus he has saved (2-1.41) =.59 or we can say that he has saved 29.5% answer
.A man walking at the speed of 4 km p.h. crosses a square field diagonally in 30 minutes. The area of the field is The diagonal is 2 km or 2000 meters side of square is : 2000/sqrt(2) =1414 area of field =2000000 sq. m. Or 200 hectares
An error of 2% in excess is made while measuring the side of a square. The percentage of error in the calculated area of the square is Instead of 100, we have taken 102 new area : 102*102 = 10404 so error in calculated area is : (10404-10000) = 404 / 10000 * 100 or 4.04% answer
The base of a triangle of 15cm and height is 12cm. The height of another triangle of double the area having the base 20cm is Area of first triangle = ½ 12*15 =90 Area of 2 nd triangle = 180 1/2*20*x=180 X = 18 Height of another traingle is 18 cm.
The sides of a triangle are in the ratio of ½:1/3:1/4. If the perimeter is 52cm, then the length of the smallest side is ½ : 1/3 : ¼ can also be written as : 6:4:3 or the length of longest side is : 6/13*52 = 24 the other two sides are : 16 and 12 cm respectively. Answer
If a square and a rhombus stand on the same base, then the ratio of the areas of the square and the rhombus is: They are of same size. Answer
The area of a circle of radius 5 is numerically what percent its circumference? Circumference of circle =2pi*r =2*22/7*5 =31.43 area = 22/7*5*5 = 78.57 thus area is 250% of the circumference.
One side of a rectangular field is 15m and one of its diagonal is 17m. Find the area of field? The other side of the rectangle is : sqrt(17^2 – 15^2 ) = (289-225) = 64 square root of 64 = 8 so width is 8 area = L * B = 15 * 8=120 sq. m
A lawn is in the form of a rectangle having its sides in the ratio 2:3 The area of the lawn is 1/6 hectares. Find the length and breadth of the lawn. Area of the lawn = 10000/6 sq. Meter 2x*3x = 10000/6 6x^2 = 10000/6 X^2 = 10000 or X =100 length = 200, and bredth = 300 m. Answer

The length of a rectangle is twice its breadth if its length is decreased by 5cm and breadth is increased by 5cm, the area of the rectangle is increased by 75 sq cm. Find the length of the rectangle. (2x*x) - ( ( 2x-5)*(x+5) ) = -75 2x^2 -(2x^2-25+5x) =-75 -5x=100 or X=20 length = 40, width = 20 answer
In measuring the sides of a rectangle, one side is taken 5% in excess and the other 4% in deficit. Find the error percent in the area, calculate from the those measurements. Let us assume length = 200, width = 100 total area : 20000 measurement = 210*96 = 20160 thus there is 160/20000 *100 = .8% variation (increase)
If each side of a square is increased by 25%, find the percentage change in its area? Let us assume present area = 100 * 100 = 10000 new area : 125*125 = 15625 so change in area : 5625 or 56.25%
Find the ratio of the areas of the incircle and circumcircle of a square. The ratio of diameter of incircle and circumcircle is 1:sqrt(2) thus the area (which is in square of radius) will be in ratio : 1 : 2 answer.
If the radius of a circle is decreased by 50% , find the percentage decrease in its area. The area will decrease to square of .5 = .25 so the resulting area will be .75 of the old area or there is 75% decrease in the area. Answer

A rectangular grassy plot 110cm by 65cm has a gravel path .5cm (half cm) wide all round it on the inside. Find the cost of gravelling the path at 80 paise per sq.mt Plot =110*65 = 7150 net of gravel : (109*64)=6976 cost : (7150-6976)*.8=139.2 answer
The perimeters of two squares are 40cm and 32 cm. Find the perimeter of a third square whose area is equal to the difference of the areas of the two squares. Solution : side of 1 st square : 40/4 = 10 , so, Area of first square = 100, of 2 nd square = 64 difference = 36, one side = 6 so perimeter of 3 rd square = 4*6 = 24 cm answer
A room 5m 44cm long and 3m 74cm broad is to be paved with squre tiles. Find the least number of squre tiles required to cover the floor Find HCF of 544 and 374 first. Divide 544 by 374, remainder is : 170, divide 374 by 170, we get 34, 170 is divisible by 34, so HCF = 34 one side of tile is 34. number of tiles required = (544*374)/(34*34) =176 tiles. Answer

The sum of all possible two digit numbers formed from three different one digit natural numbers when divided by 9 / sum of digits? Let us take 1,2,3 for each digit of the two digits, we have 3 options, so total we have 3*3 =9 options. 9/3 = 3 times – so each digit is repeated 3 times. Thus as a rule it will be 11 * 3 * (1+2+3) = 198 here. Thus divided by 9 gives 22 and divided by 6 gives 33. answer
