# Perimeter and Area Class 7 Notes: Chapter 11

### Perimeter

• Perimeter is the total length or total distance covered along the boundary of a closed shape.

### Area

• The area is the total amount of surface enclosed by a closed figure.

### The perimeter of Square and Rectangle

• Perimeter of a square = a + a + a + a = 4a, where a is the length of each side.
• Perimeter of a rectangle = l + l + b + b = 2(l + b), where l and b areÂ length and breadth, respectively.

### Area of Square & Rectangle

Area of square = 4a2

Here a is the length of each side

Area of rectangle = Length(l) Ã— Breadth(b) = lÃ—b

### Area of a Parallelogram

• Area of parallelogram ABCD =Â (baseÃ—height)

Area of parallelogram ABCD Â =Â (bÃ—h)

### Triangle as Part of Rectangle

• The rectangle can be consideredÂ as a combinationÂ of two congruent triangles.
• Consider a rectangle ABCD, it is divided into 2 triangles ACDÂ and ABD.
• Area of each triangle = 12 (Area of the rectangle).
=Â  12(10cmÃ—5cm)
=Â  25cm2

### Area of a Triangle

• Consider a parallelogram ABCD.
• Draw a diagonal BD to divide the parallelogram into two congruent triangles.
• Area of triangle ABD = 1/2Â (Area of parallelogram ABCD)

Area of triangle ABD Â = 1/2Â (bÃ—h)

### Conversion of Units

• Kilometres, metres, centimetres, millimetres areÂ units of length.
• 10 millimetres = 1Â centimetre
• 100 centimetres =Â 1 metre
• 1000 metres = 1 kilometre

### Terms Related to Circle

• A circle is a simple closed curve which is not a polygon.
• A circle isÂ a collectionÂ of points which are equidistant from a fixed point.

• The fixed point in the middle is called theÂ centre.
• The fixed distance is known asÂ radius.
• The perimeter of a circle is also called as theÂ circumference of the circle.

### Circumference of a Circle

• The circumference of a circle ( C )Â  is the total path or total distance covered by the circle. It is also called a perimeter of the circle.

CircumferenceÂ of a circle = 2Ã—Ï€Ã—r,

where rÂ is the radius of the circle.

## Visualising Area of a Circle

### Area of Circle

• Area of aÂ circle is the total region enclosed by the circle.

Area of a circle = Ï€Ã—r2, where r is the radius of the circle.

### Introduction and Value of Pi

• Pi (Ï€)Â Â is the constant which is defined as the ratio of a circleâ€™s circumferenceÂ (2Ï€r)Â to itsÂ diameter(2r).

Ï€= Circumference (2Ï€r)/Diameter (2r)

• The value of pi is approximately equal to 3.14159 or 22/7.

## Problem Solving

### Cost of Framing, Fencing

• Cost of framing or fencingÂ a land is calculated byÂ finding its perimeter.
• Example: A square-shaped land has lengthÂ of its side 10m.
Perimeter of the land = 4 Ã— 10 = 40m
Cost of fencing 1m = Rs 10
Cost of fencing the land = 40 m Ã— Rs 10Â = Rs 400

### Cost of Painting, Laminating

• Cost of painting a surface depends on the area of the surface.
• Example: A wall has dimensions 5mÃ—4m.
Area of the wall = 5mÃ—4m=20m2
Cost of painting 1m2 of area is RsÂ 20.
Cost of painting the wall =20m2Ã—RsÂ 20=RsÂ 400

### Area of Mixed Shapes

• Find the area ofÂ  the shaded portion using the given information.

Solution:Â Diameter of the semicircleÂ = 10cm
Area of the shaded portion = Area of rectangle ABCD – Area of semicircle
Area of the shaded portionÂ Â = (lÃ—b)Â âˆ’ (Ï€r2/2)
=Â 30Ã—10Â âˆ’ (Ï€Ã—52/2)
= 300Â âˆ’Â (Ï€Ã—25/2)
= (600 – 25Ï€)/2
= (600 – 78.5)/2

= 260.7Â cm2

## Frequently Asked Questions on CBSE Class 7 Maths Notes Chapter 1: Perimeter and Area

### What is value of â€˜piâ€™?

The value of â€˜piâ€™ is 3.14159.

### What is meant by area of a substance?

The amount of space taken up by any 2D shape is known to be the area covered by that substance.

### What is the purpose of Unit conversion?

Unit conversion helps in the expression of the same property in different units of measurement. For ex. time can be expressed in hours, minutes or seconds.
