1 MATHEMATICS (A) Main Concepts and Results UNIT 6 MENSURATION Perimeter of a closed figure is the distance covered in one round along the boundary of the figure. A closed figure in which all sides and angles are equal is called a regular polygon. Perimeter of a rectangle = 2 (length + breadth) Perimeter of a square = 4 length of its side Perimeter of an equilateral triangle = 3 length of a side The amount of region enclosed by a plane closed figure is called its area. Area of a rectangle = length breadth Area of a square = side side (B) Solved Examples Example 1: Choose the correct answer from the given four options: In Fig. 6.1, a square of side 1 cm is joined to a square of side 3 cm. The perimeter of the new figure is (A) 13cm (B) 14cm (C) 15cm (D) 16cm Solution: Correct answer is (B) Fig. 6.1

2 UNIT-6 Example 2: Which of the following statements are true or false? (a) Geeta wants to raise a boundary wall around her house. For this, she must find the area of the land of her house. (b) A person preparing a track to conduct sports must find the perimeter of the sports ground. Solution: (a) False Boundry wall is around her house, so she Example 3: (b) must know the perimeter of the land and not the area. True Track is prepared along the boundary of the sports ground. Fill in the blanks to make the statements true: (a) Solution: (a) 15.9cm. Example 4: Solution: Perimeter of a triangle with sides 4.5cm, 6.02cm and 5.38cm is. (b) Area of a square of side 5cm is. (b) 25sqcm. Bhavna runs 10 times around a square field of side 80m. Her sister Sushmita runs 8 times around a rectangular field with length 150m and breadth 60m. Who covers more distance? By how much? Distance covered by Bhavana in one round = Perimeter of the square field = 4 side of square field = 4 80m = 320m Distance covered in 10 rounds = (320 10)m = 3200m Distance covered by Sushmita in one round = Perimeter of the rectangular field = 2 (length + breadth) = 2 ( )m = = 420m Distance covered in 8 rounds = = 3360m Hence, Sushmita has covered 160m more than the distance coverd by Bhavna. 90 EXEMPLAR PROBLEMS

4 UNIT-6 Example 8: Solution: Side of the square tile = 20cm = sqcm = sqcm Area of the square tile = Side Side = 20 20sqcm = 400sqcm So, number of tiles required = Area of the floor Areaof one tile = = By splitting the figure into rectangles, find its area. (see Fig. 6.2) F G F D 3 1 G E D E B 2 C B 2 C Y W I U H I 4 H A 3 J A 3 J Fig. 6.2 Fig. 6.3 By splitting the figure into four rectangles, we get Fig. 6.3 Area of the figure = Area AJIY + Area YWCB + Area DWUE + Area FUHG. Area A J I Y = A J J I = 3 3 = 9 Now, B Y = A B Y A = 4 3 = 1 So, Area Y W C B = B Y B C = 1 2 = 2 Next, D W = D C + C W = = 3 Therefore, area D W U E = D W D E = 3 3 = 9 Similarly, U H = I H I U = 4 2 = 2 G H = F U and F U = E U + F E = D W + F E = 3 + 1= 4 Area F U H G = U H G H = 2 4 = 8 Therefore, the area of the figure = = 28sq units 92 EXEMPLAR PROBLEMS
