**

**i. Its area**

**ii. The cost of the land, if 1 m**

^{2}of the land costs Rs. 10,000.

**Solution:**

**i.** Length = 500 m

Breadth = 300 m

Area of rectangular piece of land = length × breadth

= 500 × 300

= 150000 m^{2}

**ii.** Cost of 1 m^{2} of land = Rs. 10,000

Cost of 150000 m^{2} of land = Rs. 10,000 × 150000

= Rs. 1500000000

**2. Find the area of a square park whose perimeter is 320 m.**

**Solution:**

Let the side of the square be s

Perimeter of the square = 320 m

4s = 320 m

s = 80 m

Area of the square = (side)^{2} = s^{2
}= 80^{2
}= 6400 m^{2}

**3. Find the breadth of a rectangular plot of land, if its area is 440 m ^{2} and the length is 22 m. Also find its perimeter.**

**Solution:**

Let the breadth of the rectangle be b

Length of the rectangle = 22 m

Area of the rectangle = 440 m^{2
}Length × Breadth = 440 m^{2
}22 × b = 440

b = 20 m

Perimeter of rectangle = 2 × (Length + Breadth)

= 2 × (22 + 20)

= 2 × 42

= 84 m^{2}

**4. The perimeter of a rectangular sheet is 100 cm. If the length is 35 cm, find its breadth. Also find the area.**

**Solution:**

Let the breadth of the rectangle be b

Length of the rectangle = 35 cm

Perimeter of the rectangle = 100 cm

2 × (Length + Breadth) = 100 cm

2 × (35 + b) = 100

35 + b = 50

b = 15 cm

Area of the rectangle = Length × Breadth

= 35 × 15

= 525 cm^{2}

**5. The area of a square park is the same as of a rectangular park. If the side of the square park is 60 m and the length of the rectangular park is 90 m, find the breadth of the rectangular park.**

**Solution:**

Let the breadth of the rectangular park be b

Length of the rectangle = 90 m

Side of the square = 60 m

Area of square = (side)^{2} = 60^{2} = 3600 m^{2
}Area of rectangle = Length × Breadth = 90 × b

According to the question,

Area of square = Area of rectangle

3600 = 90 × b

b = = 40 m

**6. A wire is in the shape of a rectangle. Its length is 40 cm and breadth is 22 cm. If the same wire is rebent in the shape of a square, what will be the measure of each side. Also find which shape encloses more area?**

**Solution:**

Length of rectangle = 40 cm

Breadth of rectangle = 22 cm

Let the side of the square be s

Perimeter of rectangle = 2 × (Length + Breadth) = 2 × (40 + 22) = 2 × (62) = 124 cm

Perimeter of square = 4 × (side) = 4s

Since the same wire is rebent from a rectangle to a square

Therefore, perimeter of square = perimeter of rectangle = length of the wire

4s = 124

s = 31 cm

Area of rectangle = Length × Breadth = 40 × 22 = 880 cm^{2
}Area of square = (Side)^{2} = 31^{2} = 961 cm^{2}

Hence, the side of the square is 31 cm and square encloses more area than the rectangle.

**7. The perimeter of a rectangle is 130 cm. If the breadth of the rectangle is 30 cm, find its length. Also find the area of the rectangle.**

**Solution:**

Let the length of rectangle be l

Breadth of rectangle = 30 cm

Perimeter of rectangle = 2 × (Length + Breadth) = 130 cm

2 × (l + 30) = 130

l + 30 = 65

l = 35 cm

Area of the rectangle = Length × Breadth = 35 × 30 = 1050 cm^{2 }

**8. A door of length 2 m and breadth 1m is fitted in a wall. The length of the wall is 4.5 m and the breadth is 3.6 m. Find the cost of white washing the wall, if the rate of white washing the wall is Rs. 20 per m ^{2}.**

**Solution:**

Length of door = 2 m

Breadth of door = 1 m

Length of wall = 4.5 m

Breadth of wall = 3.6 m

Area of wall = (Length of wall × Breadth of wall) – (Length of door × Breadth of door)

= (4.5 × 3.6) – (2 × 1)

= 16.2 – 2

= 14.2 m^{2}

Cost of white washing 1 m^{2} of wall = Rs. 20

Cost of white washing 14.2 m^{2} of wall = Rs. 20 × 14.2 = Rs. 284

r = = 7 cm

Area enclosed by circle = πr^{2} = × 7^{2} = 154 cm^{2}

Let the length of the side of the square be s

Perimeter of square = 4s

Since the same wire is rebent from a circle to square

Perimeter of square = Length of the wire

4s = 44

s = 11 cm

Area enclosed by square = s^{2} = 11^{2} = 121 cm^{2}

Therefore, the circle encloses more area.

}Radius of area covered by sprinkler (r) = 12 m

Area of garden covered by the sprinkler = πr^{2} = 3.14 × 12^{2} = 452.16 m^{2
}Since the area covered by the sprinkler is greater than the area of the garden

Hence, the sprinkler will water the entire garden.

**15. Find the circumference of the inner and the outer circles, shown in the adjoining figure? (Take π = 3.14)**

**Solution:**

Radius of outer circle (R) = 19 cm

Radius of inner circle (r) = 19 – 10 = 9 cm
