## Question

**The length of the minute hand of a clock is 14c. Find the area swept by the minute hand in 5 minutes.**

### Solution

Ans. Angle covered by minute hand in 60 minutes

Angle covered in 1 minute

Angle covered in 5 minutes

We know that area swept by the minute hand during this period

Area of sector with sector angle

We know that area swept by the minute hand during this period

=Area of sector with sector angle

## Question

**In figure AB and CD are two diameters of a circle (with centre O) perpendicular to each other and OD ¡s the diameter of the smaller circle. If OA=7cm find the area of the shaded region.**

### Solution

Area of shaded region= Area of circle +Area of semicircle ACB- Area of

## Question

### Solution

Here r= 25cm and

The total area cleaned at each sweep of the blades

## Question

**The length of the minute hand of a clock 14 m. Find the area swept by the minute hand in 5 minutes**

### Solution

Here r=14 cm and

r=2 units

## Question

(A) 2units

(B) units

(C) 4 units

(D) 7 units

### Solution

Ans: (a) Circumference =Area

## Question

**The radii of two circles are 8cm and 6 cm respectively. Find the radius of the circle having area equal (o the sum of the areas of the two circles,**

### Solution

Ans. Let R be the radius of the circle which has area equal to the sum of areas of the two circles then

According to the question

## Question

**In figure. ABCD is a square of side 14cm. Semi-circles are drawn with each side of square as diameter. Find the area of the shaded region.**

### Solution

Area of the square ABCD

Area of semicircle

Similarly, area of semicircle

Hence, the area of shaded region (Part W and Part Y) = Area of square -Area of two semicircles AOB and COD

Therefore, area of four shaded parts (i.e. X, Y, W, Z)

## Question

**In figure, find the area of the shaded region**

### Solution

Shaded area — area of square ABCD — area of square PORS — area of 4 semicircles

## Question

**In figure, 0 is the centre of a circle such that diameter AB = 13 cm and AC = 12 cm. BC is joined. Find the area of the shaded region.**

### Solution

Here,

Area of shaded region = Area of semicircle - Area of right triangle ABC

## Question

**In Figure, ABCD is a trapezium with** **and the distance between AB and DC is 14 cm. IF Ares of equal radii 7 cm have been drawn, with centres A, B, C and D, then find the area of the shaded region.**

### Solution

Area of the trapezium

Area of the four sectors

Area of shaded part

## Question

**The long and short hand of a clock are 6cm and 4 cm long respectively, find the sum of the distance travelled by their tips in 24hrs.**

### Solution

Distance covered by the tip of long hand in one hour

= circumference of the circle with radius 6 cm

Distance travelled by long hand in 24 hours

Distance travelled by tip of short hand in 12 hrs.

= circumference of the circle with radius 4 cm

Distance travelled by short hand in 24 hours

Total distance travelled
