Exercise 29(A)

1. Use the figure given below to fill in the blanks:

(i) R is the â€¦â€¦.. of the circle.

(ii) Diameter of a circle is â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦

(iii) Tangent to a circle is â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦

(iv) EF is a â€¦â€¦.. of the circle

(v) â€¦â€¦â€¦. is a chord of the circle.

(vi) Diameter = 2 Ã—â€¦â€¦â€¦.

(vii) â€¦â€¦ is a radius of the circle.

(viii) If the length of RS is 5 cm, the length of PQ = â€¦â€¦â€¦

(ix) If PQ is 8 cm long, the length of RS = â€¦â€¦â€¦.

(x) AB is a â€¦â€¦ of the circle

Solution:

(i) R is the centre of the circle

(ii) Diameter of a circle is PQ

(iii) Tangent to a circle is AB

(iv) EF is a secant of the circle

(v) CD is a chord of the circle

(vi) Diameter = 2 Ã— radius

(vii) RS is a radius of the circle

(viii) If the length of RS is 5 cm, the length of PQ = 10 cm

(ix) If PQ is 8 cm long, the length of RS = 4 cm

(x) AB is a tangent of the circle

2. Draw a circle of radius 4.2 cm. Mark its centre as O. Take a point A on the circumference of the circle. Join AO and extend it till it meets point B on the circumference of the circle,

(i) Measure the length of AB.

(ii) Assign a special name to AB.

Solution:

(i) By measurement the length of AB = 8.4 cm

(ii) AB is diameter of the circle

3. Draw circle with diameter:

(i) 6 cm

(ii) 8.4 cm

In each case, measure the length of the radius of the circle drawn.

Solution:

(i) AB is the diameter of circle

AB = 6 cm and

OA is the radius of the circle

The radius of the circle is,

1 / 2 Ã— 6 = 3 cm

Therefore, OA = OB = 3 cm

(ii) AB is the diameter of circle

AB = 8.4 cm

OA is the radius of circle

1 / 2 Ã— 8.4 = 4.2 cm

Therefore, OA = OB = 4.2 cm

4. Draw a circle of radius 6 cm. In the circle, draw a chord AB = 6 cm.

(i) If O is the centre of the circle, join OA and OB.

(ii) Assign a special name to â–³AOB

(iii) Write the measure of angle AOB.

Solution:

(ii) â–³AOB is an equilateral triangle

(iii) Since, â–³AOB is equilateral triangle

Hence, âˆ AOB = 600

5. Draw a circle of radius 4.8 cm and mark its centre as P.

(i) Draw radii PA and PB such that âˆ APB = 450

(ii) Shade the major sector of the circle

Solution:

(i) PA is the radius of circle

PA = 4.8 cm

(ii) âˆ APB = 450. P is the centre of the circle and PA and PB are radii of circle

(iii) Major sector of circle is shaded in the given figure

6. Draw a circle of radius 3.6 cm. In the circle, draw a chord AB = 5 cm. Now shade the minor segment of the circle.

Solution:

(i) OP is the radius of the circle i.e OP = 3.6 cm

AB is the chord of the circle i.e AB = 5 cm

(ii) Minor segment of the circle is shaded in the given circle

7. Mark two points A and B, 4 cm a part. Draw a circle passing through B and with A as a centre

Solution:

In the given figure A is the centre of the circle and

AB is the radius of the circle i.e AB = 4 cm

8. Draw a line AB = 8.4 cm. Now draw a circle with AB as diameter. Mark a point C on the circumference of the circle. Measure angle ACB.

Solution:

By measurement we get,

âˆ ACB = 900
