## Area Problems Solved Questions

• Area of a Rectangle = length * breadth

• Perimeter of a Rectangle = 2(Length + Breadth)
• Area of a Square = (side)2 = ½ ( Diagonal)2
• Area of four walls of a room = 2(length + breadth) * height
• Area of a triangle = ½ * base * height
• Area of a Triangle = (Heron’s formula)

where a,b,c are the sides of the triangle and s (semi-perimeter) = 1/2(a+b+c)

• Area of an equilateral triangle = (/4)* (side)2
• Area of a Parallelogram = (base * height)
• Area of Rhombus = 1/2 (product of diagonals)
• Area of Trapezium =1/2 * (sum of parallel sides)* (distance between them)
• Area of a Circle where r is the radius
• Circumference of a Circle = 2r
• Length of an arc = θ/360 * 2r
• Area of a Sector = θ/360 *
• Area of a Semicircle = /2

Let us under the concept of Areas with the help of some examples:

Eg: Length of one side of a rectangular field is 15m and length of one of its diagonal is 17m. Find the area of the field.

Sol: Applying Pythagoras here, Length of another side =  =  = 8m

So, Area of the field = 15 * 8 =120 sq. m

Eg: 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 breadth of the rectangle.

Sol: let length = 2x and breadth = x then

(2x-5) (x+5) – (2x*x)=75

5x-25 = 75 => x=20

So, breadth of the rectangle = 20 cm

Eg: A rectangular plot 110m * 65cm has a gravel path 5cm wide all round it on the inside of the rectangular plot. Find the cost of graveling the path at 80 paise per sq.mt.

Sol: Area of the plot = 110 * 65 = 7150 sq m

Area of the plot excluding the path = (110-5)* (65-5) = 6300 sq m

Area of the path = 7150- 6300 =850 sq m

Cost of graveling the path = 850 * 80/100 = 680 Rs

Eg: A room 5m 44cm long and 3m 74cm broad is to be paved with square tiles. Find the least number of square tiles that are required to cover the floor.

Sol: Area of the room = 544 * 374 sq cm

Size of largest square tile = H.C.F of 544cm and 374cm= 34cm

Area of 1 tile = 34*34 sq cm

No. of tiles required = (544*374) / (34 * 34) = 176
