(D) Short Answer Questions Sample Question 1: Find the diameter of the circle whose area is equal to the sum of the areas of the two circles of diameters 20 cm and 48 cm. 20Solution : Here, radius r1 of first circle = cm = 10 cm and radius r2 of the248 second circle = cm = 24 cm222 22Therefore, sum of their areas = π r 1 + πr2 = π(10) + π(24) = π × 676 (1) Let the radius of the new circle be r cm. Its area = π r2 (2) Therefore, from (1) and (2), π r2 = π × 676 or r2 = 676 i.e., r = 26 Thus, radius of the new circle = 26 cm Hence, diameter of the new circle = 2×26 cm = 52 cm Sample Question 2 : Find the area of a sector of circle of radius 21 cm and central angle 120°. θ π 2Solution : Area of the sector = × r 360 120 22 2 2= ×× (21) cm 360 7 = 22 ×21 cm 2 = 462 cm 2 Sample Question 3 : In Fig 11.4, a circle of radius 7.5 cm is inscribed in a square.

(E) Long Answer Questions Sample Question 1 : A chord of a circle of radius 20 cm subtends an angle of 90° at the centre. Find the area of the corresponding major segment of the circle. (Use π = 3.14). Solution : Let A B be the chord of a circle of radius 10 cm, with O as the centre of the circle (see Fig. 11.14). Here, ∠A O B = 90° and we have to find the area of the major segment (which is shaded). As ∠AOB= 90°, therefore angle of the major sector = 360° – 90° = 270° So, area of the major sector = 270 × π × (10)2 cm2 3603 = 4× 3.14 × 100 cm2 = 75 × 3.14 cm2 = 235.5 cm2 Now, to find the area of Δ OAB, draw OM ⊥ AB. 11So, AM= A B and ∠AOM = × 90° = 45°.22AM 1 Now, = sin 45° =OA2 1 cm. So, AM = 10 × 1 Therefore, A B = 10 2 cm and OM = OA cos 45° = 10× cm= 5 2 cm2 1So, area of Δ OAB = base × height21 = 10 2 × 5 cm2 = 50 cm222Therefore, the area of the required major segment = 235.5 cm2 + 50 cm2 = 285.5 cm2 Another method for the area of Δ OAB As, ∠AOB = 90°, 1Therefore, area of Δ OAB= OA × OB21 = 10 × 10 cm2 = 50 cm2 2Sample Question 2 : With the vertices A, B and C of a triangle ABC as centres, arcs are drawn with radii 5 cm each as shown in Fig. 11.15. IfAB = 14 cm, BC = 48 cm and CA = 50 cm, then find the area of the shaded region. (Use π = 3.14). Solution : Area of the sector with angle A ∠A ∠A2 22 = ×πr = ×π× (5) cm 360° 360° Area of the sector with angle B ∠B2 ∠B 22 = ×πr = ×π× (5) cm 360° 360° and the area of the sector with angle C = ∠C ×π× (5) 2 cm 2 360° Therefore, sum of the areas (in cm2) of the three sectors ∠A2 ∠B ∠C = ×π× (5) + ×π× (5) 2 + ×π× (5) 2 360° 360 ° 360 ° ∠A +∠ B+∠C × 25 π= 360° 180° 2 = × 25 πcm (Because ∠A +∠B + ∠C = 180°)360° π = 25 × cm2 = 25 × 1.57 cm2 = 39.25 cm2 2 Now, to find area of Δ ABC, we find + +abc48 + 50 + 14 s = = cm = 56 cm 22By Heron’s Formula, ar (ABC) = s(s– a) (s– b) (s– c) = 336 cm2 So, area of the shaded region = area of the Δ ABC – area of the three sectors = (336 – 39.25) cm2 = 296.75 cm2 Alternate Method for ar (ABC) Here, AB2 + BC2 = (14)2 + (48)2 = 2500 = (50)2 = (CA)2 So, ∠B = 90° (By converse of Pythagoras Theorem) Therefore, ar (ABC) =1 AB × BC = 1× 14 × 48 cm2 = 336 cm2 22 Sample Question 3 : A calf is tied with a rope of length 6 m at the corner of a square grassy lawn of side 20 m. If the length of the rope is increased by 5.5m, find the increase in area of the grassy lawn in which the calf can graze. Solution : Let the calf be tied at the corner A of the square lawn (see Fig. 11.16) Then, the increase in area = Difference of the two sectors of central angle 90° each and radii 11.5 m (6 m + 5.5 m) and 6 m, which is the shaded region in the figure.
