Question 1.
(a) Match the following figures with their respective areas in the box :

(b) Write the perimeter of each shape.
Solution:

(b) (i) Perimter of parallelogram = 2(a + b) = 2(14 + b)
(ii) Perimeter of semicircle = $$\frac{2 \pi r}{2}$$ = πr = $$\frac{22}{7}$$ × 7 = 2 cm.
(iii) Perimeter of triangle = 14 + 11 + 9 = 34 cm.
(iv) Perimeter of square = 4 × side = 4 × 7 = 28 cm.
(v) Perimeter of rectangle = 2(l + b) = 2(14 + 7) = 2 × 21 = 42 cm.

Question 1.
Nazma’s sister also has a trapezium shaped plot. Divide it into three parts as shown (Fig. 11.6). Show that the area of trapezium WXYZ = h $$\frac{(a+b)}{2}$$
Solution:

Area of trapezium = Area of △(l) + Area of rectangle + Area of △(2)

Hence, area of trapezium = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ h (a + b).
Hence verified

Question 2.
If h = 10 cm, c = 6 cm, 6 = 12 cm, d = 4 cm, find the values of each of its parts separately and add to find the area WXYZ. Verify it by putting the values of h, a and b in the expression $$\frac{h(a+b)}{2}$$
Solution:
∵ Area of trapezium
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$h(a + b) = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × h(c + d + 2b)
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 10(6 + 4 + 2 × 12)
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 10(10 + 24)
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 10 × 34 = 170 cm2

= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ h (a + b)= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 3 (9 + 7)
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 3 × 16 = 24 cm3.

(ii) Area of trapezium= $$\frac{1}{2}$$h(a + b)
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 6 × (10 + 5)
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 6 × 15
= 45 cm3

Question 1.
We know that parallelogram is also a quadrilateral. Let us also split such a quadrilateral into two triangles, find their areas and hence that of the parallelogram. Does this agree with the formula that you know already ? (Fig. 11.8)

Solution: Area of parallelogram= a × h
L.H.S. = Area of parallelogram
= Area 6f triangle (l) + Area of triangle (2)
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × b ×h + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × b × h
= $$\frac{b h+b h}{2}$$ = $$\frac{2(b h)}{2}$$
= b × h
= R.H.S.
Hence verified.

= 9 + 15 = 24 cm2

(ii) Area of rhombus
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × d1 × d2 = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 7 × 6
= 21 cm2

Area of polygon ABCDE = Area of DAFB + …..
Area of △AFB = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × AF × BF
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 3 × 2 = …

Area of trapezium FBCH
= FH × $$\frac{(\mathrm{BF}+\mathrm{CH})}{2}$$

[FH = AH – AF]
Area of △CHD = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × HD × CH = ………..

= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ FI × h1 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ GI × h2 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ FI × h3.

(b)
Area of polygon MNOPQR
= Area of △NOQ + Area of △OQP + Area of △MRQ + Area of △MNQ
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ NQ × h1 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ OQ × h2 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ MQ × h3 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ NQ × h4

(ii) Area of polygon ABODE = Area of △AFB + Area of trapezium FBCH + Area of △CHD + Area of △ADE
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × AF × BF + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ (BF + CH) × FH + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × HD × CH + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × AD × EG
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 3 × 2 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$(2 + 3) × 3 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 2 × 3 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 8 × 2.5
[where, FH = AH – FH = 6-3 = 3 cm, HD = AD – AH = 8 – 6 = 2 cm]
= 3 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ + 3 + 10.0
= $$\frac{16}{1}$$ + $$\frac{15}{2}$$ = $$\frac{32+15}{2}$$
= $$\frac{47}{2}$$ = 23.5 cm2.

(iii) Area of polygon MNOPQR
= ar △AMN + ar trapezium ANOC + ar △COP + ar △MBR + ar, trapezium BDQR + ar △DPQ

= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 2 × 2.5 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ (2.5 + 3) × 4 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 3 × 3 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 4 × 2.5 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × (2.5 + 2) × 3 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 2 × 2
where, AC = MC – MA
= 6 – 2 = 4 cm
CP = MP – MC
= 9 – 6 = 3 cm
BD = MD – MB
= 7 – 4 = 3 cm
DP = MP – MD
= 9 – 7 = 2 cm
∴ Area of polygon MNOPQR
= 2.5 + 11 + $$\frac{9}{2}$$ + 5 + $$\frac{13.5}{2}$$ + 2
= 2.5 + 11 + 4.5 + 5 + 6.25 + 2
= 31.25 cm2.
