Miscellaneous Practice Problems

Question 1.

Two gates are fitted at the entrance of a library. To open the gates easily, a wheel is fixed at 6 feet istance from the wall ito which the gate is fixed. If one of the gates is opened to 90°, find the distance moved by the wheel (π = 3.14).

Solution:

Let A be the position of the wall AC be the gate in initial position and AB be position when it is moved 90°.

Now the arc length BC gives the distance moved by the wheel.

Length of the arc

= \(\frac{\theta}{360^{\circ}}\) × 2πr units

= \(\frac{90^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}}\) × 2 × 3.14 × 6 feets

= 3.14 × 3 feets

= 9.42 feets

∴ Distance moved by the wheel = 9.42 feets.

Question 2.

With his usual speed, if a person covers a circular track of radius 150 ra in 9 minutes, find the distance that he covers in 3 minutes (π = 3.14).

Solution:

Radius of the circular track = 150m

Distance covers in 9 minutes = Perimeter of the circle = 2 × π × r units

Distance covered in 9 min = 2 × 3.14 × 150 m

Distance he covers in 3 min = 314 m

Question 3.

Find the area of the house drawing given in the figure.

Solution:

Area of the house = Area of a square of side 6 cm + Area of a rectangle with l = 8cm, h = 6 cm + Area of a ∆ with b = 6 cm and h = 4 cm + Area of a parallelogram with b = 8 cm, h = 4 cm

= (side × side) + (l × b) + (\(\frac{1}{2}\) × b × h) + 6h cm^{2}

= (6 × 6) + (8 × 6) + (\(\frac{1}{2}\) × 6 × 4) + (8 × 4) cm^{2}

= 36 + 48 + 12+ 32 cm^{2}

Required Area = 128 cm^{2}

Question 4.

Challenging Problems

Question 6.

Guna has fixed a single door of 3 feet wide in his room whereas Nathan has fixed a double door, each 1 \(\frac{1}{2}\) feet wide in his room. From the closed state, if each of the single and double doors can open up to 120°, whose door requires a minimum area?

Solution:

(a) Width of the door that Guna fixed = 3 feet.

When the door is open the radius of the sector = 3 feet

Angle covered = 120°

∴ Area required to open the door = \(\frac{120^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}}\) × πr^{2} = \(\frac{120^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}}\) × π × 3 × 3 = 37π feet^{2}

(b) Width of the double doors that Nathan fixed = 1\(\frac{1}{2}\) feet.

Angle described to open = 120°

Area required to open = 2 × Area of the sector

= 2 × \(\frac{120^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}} \times \pi \times \frac{3}{2} \times \frac{3}{2} \text { feets }^{2}=\frac{3 \pi}{2}\) feet^{2}

= \(\frac{1}{2}\) (3π) feet^{2}

∴ The double door requires the minimum area.

Question 7.

In a rectangular field which measures 15 m × 8m, cows are tied with a rope of length 3m at four corners of the field and also at the centre. Find the area of the field where none of the cow can graze. (π = 3.14).

Solution:

Area of the field where none of the cow can graze = Area of the rectangle – [Area of 4 quadrant circles] – Area of a circle

Area of the rectangle = l × b units^{2}

= 15 × 8 m^{2} = 120 m^{2}

Area of 4 quadrant circles = 4 × \(\frac{1}{4}\) πr^{2} units

Radius of the circle = 3 m

Area of 4 quadrant circles = 4 × \(\frac{1}{4}\) × 3.14 × 3 × 3 = 28.26m^{2}

Area of the circle at the middle = πr^{2} units

= 3.14 × 3 × 3m^{2} = 28.26m^{2}

∴ Area where none of the cows can graze

= [120 – 28.26 – 28.26]m^{2} = 120 – 56.52 m^{2} = 63.48m^{2}

Question 8.

Three identical coins, each of diameter 6 cm are placed as shown. Find the area of the shaded region between the coins, (π = 3.14) ( \(\sqrt{3}\) = 1.732)

Solution:

Given diameter of the coins = 6 cm

∴ Radius of the coins = \(\frac{6}{2}\) = 3 cm

Area of the shaded region = Area of equilateral triangle – Area of 3 sectors of angle 60°

Area of the equilateral triangle

∴ Area of the shaded region = 15.588 – 14.13 cm^{2} = 1.458 cm^{2}

Required area 1.458 cm^{2} (approximately)

Question 9.

Using graph sheet, draw the net for the cuboid whose length is 5cm, breadth is 4cm and height is 3cm and also find its area.

Solution:

Net for the cuboid is:

One of the possible nets for a cuboid of length = 5 cm, breadth = 4 cm, height = 3 cm is given above

Area of the cuboid

= 20 cm^{2} + 15 cm^{2} + 20 cm^{2} + 15 cm^{2} + 12 cm^{2} + 12 cm^{2} = 94 cm^{2}

Using formula,

Surface area of a cuboid

= 2 (lb + bh + lh) unit^{2}

= 2(5 × 4 + 4 × 3 + 5 × 3) cm^{2}

= 2(20 + 12 + 15) cm^{2}

= 94 cm^{2}

Question 10.

Using Euler’s formula, find the unknowns.

Solution:

Euler’s formula is given by F + V- E = 2

(i) V = 6, E = 14

By Euler’s formula

= F + 6 – 14 = 2

F = 2 + 14 – 6

F = 10

(ii) F = 8, E = 10

By Euler’s formula

= 8 + V – 10 = 2

V = 2 – 8 + 10

V = 4

(iii) F = 20, V = 10

By Euler’s formula

= 20 + 10 – E = 2

30 – E = 2

E = 30 – 2

E = 28
