Consider two different cloth – cutting processes. In the first one, n circular cloth pieces are cut from a square cloth piece of side a in the following steps : the original square of side a is divided into n smaller squares and a circle of max area is cut from each of those squares. In the second process, only one circle of maximum possible area is cut from the square of side ‘a’ and the process ends there. The cloth pieces remaining after cutting the circles are scrapped in both the processes. What is the ratio of the total area of scrap cloth generated in the former to that in the latter?
The correct option is D 1 : 1
The correct answer is option (a). Check the video for the approach.
