**Question 1:** **The perimeter of a certain sector of a circle of radius 6.5 cm is 31 cm. Find the area of the sector.**

**Solution:**

**Given:**

Radius = 6.5 cm

Let O be the centre of the circle with radius 6.5 cm and OACBO be its sector with perimeter 31 cm.

Thus, we have:

OA + OB + arc AB = 31 cm

\(\Rightarrow\)

\(\Rightarrow\)

\(\Rightarrow\)

Now,

Area of the sector OACBO = \(\frac{1}{2}\times Radius\times Arc\)^{2}

**Question 2:** **The radius of a circle is 17.5 cm. Find the area of the sector enclosed by two radii and an arc 44 cm in length.**

**Solution:**

**Given:**

Radius = 17.5 cm

Length of the arc = 44 cm

Now,

Length of the arc = \(\frac{2\Pi r\Theta }{360}\)

\(\Rightarrow\)

\(\Rightarrow\)

\(\Rightarrow\)^{o}

Also,

Area of the sector = \(\frac{\Pi r^{2}\Theta }{360}\)^{2}

**Question 3:** **Two circular pieces of equal radii and maximum area, touching each other are cut out from a rectangular cardboard of dimensions 14 cm x 7 cm. Find the area of the remaining cardboard.**

**Solution:**

We know that we can cut two circular pieces of equal radii and maximum area from the rectangular cardboard whose diameter is equal to the width of the rectangular cardboard.

Therefore, Radii of two circular pieces = Half of the width of the rectangular cardboard = 3.5 cm

Now,

Area of remaining cardboard = Area of rectangular cardboard â€“ 2 x Area of circular piece having radius 3.5 cm

= 14 x 7 â€“ 2(\(\frac{22}{7}\)^{2}

Hence, the area of the remaining cardboard is 21 cm^{2}

**Question 4:** **In the given figure, ABCD is a square of side 4 cm. A quadrant of a circle of radius 1 cm is drawn at each vertex of the square and a circle of diameter 2 cm is also drawn. Find the area of the shaded region. [Use \(\Pi\) = 3.14]**

**Solution:**

Area of the square ABCD = (Side)^{2} = 4^{2} = 16 cm^{2}

Area of the circle = \(\Pi r^{2}\)

Radius = 1 cm

Area = 3.14 x (1)^{2} = 3.14 cm^{2}

Area of the quadrant of one circle = \(\frac{1}{4}\Pi r^{2}\)^{2}

Area of the quadrants of four circles = 0.785 x 4 = 3.14 cm^{2}

Area of the shaded region = Area of the square â€“ Area of the circle â€“ Area of the quadrants of four circles = 16 â€“ 3.14 â€“ 3.14 = 9.72 cm^{2}

**Question 5:** **From a rectangular sheet of paper ABCD with AB = 40 cm and AD = 28 cm, a semi-circular portion with BC as diameter is cut off. Find the area of the remaining paper.**

**Solution:**

We know that the opposite sides of triangle are equal

Therefore, AD = BC = 28 cm

Now, Radius of semicircle portion = \(\frac{1}{2}\)

Therefore, Area of remaining paper = Area of rectangular sheet â€“ Area of semicircular portion

= \(40\times 28-\frac{1}{2}\left ( \frac{22}{7}\times 14\times 14 \right )\)^{2}

Hence, the area of the remaining paper is 812 cm^{2}

**Question 6:** **In the given figure, OABC is a square of side 7 cm. If COPB is a quadrant of a circle with centre C. find the area of the shaded region.**

**Solution:**

Area of shaded region = Area of square OABC â€“ Area of quadrant COPB having radius OC

= (Side)^{2} â€“ \(\frac{1}{4}\)

= (7)^{2} â€“ \(\frac{1}{4}\)^{2}

Hence, the area of the shaded region is 10.5 cm^{2}

**Question 7:** **In the given figure, three sectors of a circle of radius 7 cm, making angles of 60 ^{o}, 80^{o} and 40^{o} at the centre are shaded. Find the area of the shaded region.**

**Solution:**

Area of the shaded region = Area of sector having central angle 60^{o} + Area of sector having central angle 80^{o} + Area of sector having central angle 40^{o}

= \(\left [ \frac{60^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}}\times \Pi (7)^{2} \right ]+\left [ \frac{80^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}}\times \Pi (7)^{2} \right ]+\left [ \frac{40^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}}\times \Pi (7)^{2} \right ]\)

= \(\Pi (7)^{2}\left ( \frac{60^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}}+\frac{80^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}}+\frac{40^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}} \right )\)

= \(\Pi (7)^{2}\left ( \frac{180^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}} \right )\)^{2}

Hence, the area of the shaded region is 77 cm^{2}.

**Question 8:** **In the given figure, PQ and AB are respectively the arcs of two concentric circles of radii 7 cm and 3.5 cm with centre O. If \(\angle\)POQ = 30 ^{o}, find the area of the shaded region.**

**Solution:**

Area of the shaded portion = Area of sector OPQ â€“ Area of sector OAB

= \(\frac{30^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}}\times \Pi (7)^{2}-\frac{30^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}}\times \Pi (3.5)^{2}\)

= \(\frac{22}{7}\times \frac{1}{12}\left [ (7)^{2}-(3.5)^{2} \right ]\)

= \(\frac{22}{7}\times \frac{1}{12}\left [ (7)^{2}-\left ( \frac{7}{2} \right )^{2} \right ]\)

= \(\frac{22}{7}\times \frac{1}{12}\times \frac{147}{4}\)^{2}

Hence, the area of the shaded portion is \(\frac{77}{8}\)^{2}.

**Question 9:** **In the given figure, find the area of the shaded region, if ABCD is a square of side 14 cm and APD and BPC are semi-circles.**

**Solution:**

Area of the shaded region = Area of Square ABCD â€“ (Area of semicircle APD + Area of semicircle BPC)

= (14)^{2} â€“ \(\left [ \frac{1}{2}\Pi \left ( \frac{14}{2} \right )^{2}+\frac{1}{2}\Pi \left ( \frac{14}{2} \right )^{2} \right ]\)^{2} â€“ \(\frac{22}{7}(7)^{2}\)^{2}

Hence, the area of the shaded region is 42 cm^{2}.

**Question 10:** **In the given figure, the shape of the top of a table is that of a sector of a circle with centre O and \(\angle\)AOB = 90 ^{o}. If AO = OB = 42 cm, then find the perimeter of the top of the table.**

**Solution:**

We have r = 42 cm and \(\Theta\)^{o} â€“ 90^{o} = 270^{o}

Perimeter of the top of the table = Length of the major arc AB + Length of OA + Length of OB

= \(\frac{\Theta }{360^{\circ}}\times 2\Pi r+42+42\)

= \(\frac{270^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}}\times 2\times \frac{22}{7}\times 42+84\)

Hence, the perimeter of the top of the table is 282 cm.

**Question 11:** **In the given figure, ABCD is a square of side 7 cm, DPBA and DQBC are quadrants of circles each of the radius 7 cm. find the area of the shaded region.**

**Solution:**

Area of the shaded portion = (Area of quadrant DPBA + Area of quadrant DQBC) â€“ Area of Square ABCD

= \(\left [ \frac{1}{4}\Pi (7)^{2}+\frac{1}{4}\Pi (7)^{2} \right ]-(7)^2\)^{2}

Hence, the area of the shaded portion is 28 cm^{2}.

**Question 12:** **In the given figure, OABC is a quadrant of a circle with centre O and radius 3.5 cm. If OD = 2 cm, find the area of the shaded region.**

**Solution:**

Area of the right-angled \(\Delta\)^{2}

Area of the sector AOC = \(\frac{\Theta }{360}\)^{2}

= \(\frac{90}{360}\)^{2} = 9.625 cm^{2}

Area of the shaded region = Area of the \(\Delta\)^{2}

**Question 13:** **Find the perimeter of the shaded region in the figure, if ABCD is a square of side 14 cm and APB and CPD are semicircles.**

**Solution:**

Perimeter of shaded region = Length of the arc APB + Length of the arc CPD + Length of AD + Length of BC

= \(\frac{1}{2}\times 2\Pi r+\frac{1}{2}\times 2\Pi r+14+14\)

= \(2\Pi r\)

Hence, the perimeter of the shaded region is 72 cm.

**Question 14:** **In a circle of radius 7 cm, a square ABCD is inscribed. Find the areas of the circle which is outside the square.**

**Solution:**

Let the diagonal of the square be d.

We know that if a circle circumscribes a square, then the diameter of the circle is equal to the diagonal of the square.

Therefore, d = 2 x 7 = 14 cm

Now,

Area of required region = Area of circle â€“ Area of square

= \(\Pi r^{2}-\frac{1}{2}d^{2}\)^{2}

Hence, the required area is 56 cm^{2}.

**Question 15:** **In the given figure, APB and CQD are semicircles of diameter 7 cm each, while ARC BSD are semicircles of diameter 14 cm each. Find the (i) perimeter, (ii) area of the shaded region.**

**Solution:**

**(i)** Perimeter of shaded region = Length of the arc APB + Length of the arc ARC + Length of the arc BSD + Length of the arc CQD

= \( \frac{1}{2}\times 2\Pi r_{1}+\frac{1}{2}\times 2\Pi r_{2}+\frac{1}{2}\times 2\Pi r_{3}+\frac{1}{2}\times 2\Pi r_{4}\)

= \( \frac{1}{2}\times 2\Pi \left ( \frac{7}{2} \right )+\frac{1}{2}\times 2\Pi (7)+\frac{1}{2}\times 2\Pi (7)+\frac{1}{2}\times 2\Pi \left ( \frac{7}{2} \right )\)

= \( 2\Pi \left ( \frac{7}{2} \right )+2\Pi (7)\)

= \( 2\Pi \left ( \frac{7}{2}+7 \right )\)

**(ii)** Area of shaded region = Area of the arc ARC + Area of the arc BSD â€“ (Area of the arc APB + Area of the arc CQD)

= \( \frac{1}{2}\times \Pi (r_{1})^{2}+\frac{1}{2}\times \Pi (r_{2})^{2}-\left [ \frac{1}{2}\times \Pi (r_{3})^{2}+\frac{1}{2}\times \Pi (r_{4})^{2} \right ]\)

= \( \frac{1}{2}\times \Pi (7)^{2}+\frac{1}{2}\times \Pi (7)^{2}-\left [ \frac{1}{2}\times \Pi \left ( \frac{7}{2} \right )^{2}+\frac{1}{2}\times \Pi \left ( \frac{7}{2} \right )^{2} \right ]\)

= \( \Pi (7)^{2}-\Pi \left ( \frac{7}{2} \right )^{2}\)

= \( \Pi \left ( 49-\frac{49}{4} \right )\)^{2}

**Question 16:** **In the given figure, PSR, RTQ and PAQ are three semicircles of diameter 10 cm, 3 cm and 7 cm respectively. Find the perimeter of the shaded region. [Use \(\Pi\) = 3.14]**

**Solution:**

Perimeter of shaded region = Length of the arc PAQ + Length of the arc PSR + Length of the arc RTQ

= \(\frac{1}{2}\times 2\Pi r_{1}+\frac{1}{2}\times 2\Pi r_{2}+\frac{1}{2}\times 2\Pi r_{3}\)

= \( \frac{1}{2}\times 2\Pi \left ( \frac{7}{2} \right )+\frac{1}{2}\times 2\Pi \left ( \frac{10}{2} \right )+\frac{1}{2}\times 2\Pi \left ( \frac{3}{2} \right )\)

= \( \frac{7}{2}\Pi +\frac{3}{2}\Pi +5\Pi\)

Hence, the perimeter of shaded region is 31.4 cm.

**Question 17:** **In the given figure, a square OABC is inscribed in a quadrant OPBQ of a circle. If OA = 20 cm, find the area of the shaded region. [Use \(\Pi\) = 3.14]**

**Solution:**

Construction: Join OB

In right triangle AOB

OB^{2} = OA^{2} + AB^{2} = 20^{2} + 20^{2} = 400 + 400 = 800

Therefore, OB^{2} = 800

Area of the shaded region = Area of quadrant OPBQ â€“ Area of Square OABC

= \(\frac{1}{4}\Pi (OB)^2-(OA)^2\)

= \(\frac{1}{4}\times 3.14\times 800-400\)^{2}

Hence, the area of the shaded region is 228 cm^{2}.
