      2. 7.14cm2
      3. 12.5cm2
      4. 19.64cm2

Answer: (C)12.5 cm2

Solution: Area of the shaded region = Area of semicircle-Area of segment of the sector BAC

Area of the semicircle with BC as diameter =CBSE Class 10 Maths Chapter 12 Areas related to Circles Question 1 Solution Image19.64cm2

Area of segment = Area of quadrant – Area of ΔABC

= 90/360 × 22/7 × 52– ½ × 5 × 5=19.64-12.5=7.14 cm2….. (ii)

Area of the shaded region = (i) – (ii) = 19.64 – 7.14 = 12.5 cm2

    1. Area of the shaded portion in the following figure is equal to area of.

Note: The point B in the diagram may not represent its actual position.

      1. 3.5cm
      2. 7cm
      3. 14cm
      4. 28cm

Answer: (B) 7cm

Solution: Given that the tangent at point B is parallel to the tangent at point A. The points A and B would be as follows

CBSE Class 10 Maths Chapter 12 Areas related to Circles Question 3 Solution Image

The tangents at A and B are parallel, so the radii through A and B should be parallel to each other since the radius is perpendicular to the tangent at the point of contact. Since the radius passes through the center of the circle, the radii through A and B must lie on the same straight line. The line AB will be the diameter of the circle.

Now A and B are on two ends of the diameter of the circle. The distance travelled along the circle from A to B will be half the circumference of the circle.

Now, Circumference

= 2πr=2×π×7/π=14cm

Distance

= 1/2×circumference=1/2×14cm=7cm

    1. A pendulum swings through on angle of 30∘ and describes an arc 8.8 cm in length. Find the length of pendulum in cm.
      1. 16.8
      2. 17.3
      3. 15.1
      4. 14.5

Answer: (A) 16.8

Solution:

CBSE Class 10 Maths Chapter 12 Areas related to Circles Question 4 Solution Image

Let r be the length of the pendulum

Length of arc = 8.8 cm

∠AOB = 30 

Length of an arc of a sector of an angle θ = (θ/360) × 2πr

Length of arc = (θ/360) ×2πr

8.8= (30/360) × 2 × (22/7) × r

r= (8.8×21)/11=16.8 cm

    1. Given below is a combination figure of square ABCD of side 26cm and four circles. Find the area of the shaded region.

CBSE Class 10 Maths Chapter 12 Areas related to Circles Question 7 Image

      1. 530.64 cm2
      2. 402.83cm2
      3. 360cm2
      4. 480.53cm2

Answer: (A) 530.64 cm2

Solution: The given figure forms four sectors:

Area of a sector of angle Θ= Θ/360 × πr2

Area of one sector APS = (90/360) × π ×132= 132.66 cm2

Total area of shaded region = Area of four sectors=4 × 132.66 cm= 530.64cm2

    1. In the given figure, a circle is inscribed in a trapezium of height 14 cm and lengths of parallel sides are equal to 25 cm and 40 cm. What is the area of the shaded region?

CBSE Class 10 Maths Chapter 12 Areas related to Circles Question 8 Image

      1. 455 sq cm
      2. 154 sq cm
      3. 509 sq cm
      4. 301 sq cm

Answer: (D) 301 sq cm

Solution: Area of the shaded region = Area of the trapezium – Area of the circle

Area of trapezium =1/2 × height × sum of parallel sides

=1/2×14× (25+40) =455 sq cm

Area of the circle = π×r2= (22/7) ×7×7=154 sq cm

Hence, area of the shaded region = 455 – 154 = 301 sq cm

    1. Radius of the outer circle is 18 cm and the radius of the inner circle is 7 cm. What is the area of the region between the outer and the inner circles?
      1. 361 πcm2
      2. 133 cm2
      3. 192.5 cm2
      4. 275 πcm2

Answer: (D) 275 πcm2

Solution:

CBSE Class 10 Maths Chapter 12 Areas related to Circles Question 9 Solution Image

Area of the region in between outer and inner circle = Area of outer circle – Area of inner circle

Area of the outer circle = π (18)2 = 324 πcm2

Area of the inner circle = π (7)= 49 πcm2

So, area of the required region = 324 π – 49π = 275 πcm2

    1. A stadium is in circular shape. Within the stadium some areas have been allotted for a hockey court and a javelin range, as given in the figure. Assume the shape of the hockey court and the javelin range to be square and triangle, resp. The curators would like to accommodate a few more sports in the stadium. Help them by measuring the unallocated region within the stadium. (the radius of the stadium is 200 mts.)

CBSE Class 10 Maths Chapter 12 Areas related to Circles Question 10 Image

      1. 40000π m2
      2. 40000(π−1) m2
      3. 20000(π−1) m2
      4. 20000π m2

Answer: (B) 40000(π−1) m2

Solution: We need to find the unallocated area within the stadium.

The unallocated area should be = The total circular area of the stadium – Area of the hockey court – Area of the Javelin Range.

The area of circular stadium = π×r2

= π×2002

= 40000π

The area of hockey court (square), we know that the radius of the stadium forms the diagonal of the hockey court.

Therefore the sides of the hockey court will be \(a=\frac{r}{\sqrt{2}}\) , (applying Pythagoras Theorem in a square)

Then, the area of the square =a2

\(=(\frac{r}{\sqrt{2}})^{2}\)

= r2/ 2

= 2002/2

20000 m2

Javelin Range is a right angled triangle

area of the right triangle = ½ × r × r

= ½ × 200 × 200

= 20000 m2

Therefore the unallocated area in the stadium =Total area of stadium – Area of the hockey court – Area of the Javelin Range

=40000π−20000−20000

=40000(π−1) m2

The unallocated area within the stadium is 40000(π−1) m2.

Areas of sector and Segments related to circles

    1. There is a circle of diameter 10 cm. A chord of length 6 cm is drawn inside the circle. What is the distance between the centre and this chord in cm?
      1. 1.5
      2. 2
      3. 4
      4. 3

Answer: (C) 4

Solution:

CBSE Class 10 Maths Chapter 12 Areas related to Circles Question 11 Solution Image

Radius = 1/2 of diameter = 5 cm

OS is drawn from O and is perpendicular to chord PQ and bisects it.

Hence SQ = 3 cm

Hence length of OS is distance between O and PQ.

OQ2= OS2 + SQ2

52 = OS2+ 32

⇒ OS = 4 cm.

Hence distance between centre and chord is 4 cm.

    1. Find the area of the shaded region

CBSE Class 10 Maths Chapter 12 Areas related to Circles Question 12 Image

      1. 24 cm2
      2. 25cm2
      3. 28cm2
      4. 21cm2

Answer: (C) 28cm2

Solution: Area of square ABCD = 7×7 =49cm2

Area of AMCDA = ¼ × π× 72 = 1/4×22/7×72 = 38.5cm2

Area of ADCNA = Area of AMCDA = 38.5cm2

Area of shaded region = Area of ADCNA + Area of AMCDA – Area of square ABCD

→2× Area of ADCNA – Area of square ABCD

= 2×38.5 – 49 =28cm2

    1. Find the area of the shaded region

      3. 43cm2
      4. 62cm2

Answer: (C) 43cm2

Solution: Divide the square ABCD into equal four parts

CBSE Class 10 Maths Chapter 12 Areas related to Circles Question 13 Solution Image 1

and take one part which is given by

CBSE Class 10 Maths Chapter 12 Areas related to Circles Question 13 Solution Image 2

Area of shaded region in this part = Area of square DPOS – Area of the unshaded region

and area of PDMO = 52 – ¼ × π×r2 = 25− ¼ ×3.14×25 = 5.375cm2

Therefore area of the shaded region in square DPOS = 5.375×2 = 10.75 cm2

As DPOS is a quarter of square ABCD,

Total area of the shaded region = 4×10.75=  43cm2

Let us consider the radius of the circle is ‘r’ and the side length of the triangle is ‘a’.

CBSE Class 10 Maths Chapter 12 Areas related to Circles Question 15 Solution Image1

Construction: Join OA. Draw OD perpendicular to AB. Since OD is perpendicular to AB it bisects the chord. Therefore, AD = 1/2×AB

In the triangle AOD,

∠AOD=1/2∠AOB                      (triangle AOB is isosceles triangle)

Because, angle subtended by a chord A the centre O is double the angle subtended by the chord at any point on the circumference.

∠AOB=2×∠ACB         ∠ACB is internal angle of the equilateral triangle)

= 2×60

=120   ​

Therefore,      ∠AOD=12×120   ​

∠AOD=60

∠ADO=90∘                   (OD perpendicular to AB)

Applying trigonometric properties in rt triangle AOD,

AD/AO = sin 60

AD = AO Sin 60

      1. 65.5 cm2
      2. 66.5 cm2
      3. 67.5 cm2
      4. 68.5 cm2

Answer: (B) 66.5 cm2

Solution: Radius of larger circle, R = 7 cm

Radius of smaller circle, r=7/2cm

Height of ΔBCA=OC=7 cm

Base of ΔBCA=AB=14 cm

Area of ΔBCA=1/2×AB×OC=1/2×7×14=49 cm2

Area of larger circle =π×R2=22/7×72=154cm2

Area of larger semicircle =154/2cm2=77 cm2

Area of smaller circle =π × R2=22/7×7/2×7/2=77/2cm2

Area of the shaded region = Area of larger circle – Area of triangle – Area of larger semicircle + Area of smaller circle

Area of the shaded region =(154−49−77+77/2)cm2

=133/2cm2=66.5 cm2

Arc length

    1. A wire is bent to form a circle of radius 7 cm. From the resulting shape, a chunk of the wire is cut off, and the wire cut off measures 4 cm in length. The length of the remaining wire is
      1. 45cm
      2. 50cm
      3. 40cm
      4. 42cm

Answer: (C) 40cm

Solution: The length of the wire = circumference of the circle with radius 7cm

=2×π×r=2×22/7×7=44 cm.

When a wire of length 4 cm is cut off, the length of the wire remaining = circumference – length of arc cut off = 44 – 4 = 40 cm.

Perimeter and areas related to circles

    1. If the perimeter and the area of a circle are numerically equal, then the radius of the circle is
      1. 3 units
      2. 4 units
      3. π units
      4. 2 units

Answer: (D) 2 units

Solution: Let the radius of the circle be r.

∴ Perimeter of the circle = Circumference of the circle =2πr

∴ Area of the circle =πr2

Given: Area = Perimeter

⇒2πr=πr2

⇒2=r

Thus, the radius of the circle is 2 units.

    1. In the given figure below, OACB is a quadrant of a circle. The radius OA = 3.5 cm, OD = 2 cm. Calculate the area of the shaded region.

CBSE Class 10 Maths Chapter 12 Areas related to Circles Question 19 Image

      1. 5.125cm2
      2. 6.5cm2
      3. 7cm2
      4. 6.125cm2

Answer: (D) 6.125cm2

Solution: Area of a quadrant of a circle = 1/4× area of the circle.

∴ Area of the shaded region = 1/4× Area of the circle – Area of the triangle.

⟹ Area of the shaded region = 1/4×πr2   −1/2base×height

⟹ Area of the shaded region = 1/4×22/7×3.5×3.5 −1/2×3.5×2

⟹ Area of the shaded region = 9.625 – 3.5 = 6.125 cm2

      1. 35 cm
      2. 32 cm
      3. 17.5cm
      4. 16.5cm

Answer: (C) 17.5cm

Solution:

CBSE Class 10 Maths Chapter 12 Areas related to Circles Question 20 Solutions Image

Let the radii of inner circle and outer circle be r and R respectively.

Then, 2 × 22/7 × r=88

∴ r = 14 cm.

Area of the inner circle = 22/7 × 14 × 14cm2=616cm2

∴ Area of the outer circle = (616 + 346) cm2 = 962.5 cm2

Then, 22/7×R2=962.5

⟹R2=962.5×7/22=6.25×7×7

⟹R=2.5×7 = 17.5 cm
