Multiple choice Questions

3) The difference between sides at right angles in a right angled triangle is 14 cm. The area of the triangle is 120. The perimeter of the triangle is

a) 80

b) 45

c) 60

d) 64

Solution (c)

Let y be one of the at right angle, then another side will be y-14

Now we know that

So other side is 10

From pythogrous theorem

Hypotenuse

So perimeter will be

4. Find the area of the equilateral triangle whose perimeter is 180 cm?

Which of the following is true?

a)

b)

c)

d) None of these

Solution

Area of equilateral

5) One diagonal and side of the rhombus are 24 and 13 cm respectively, find the Area and other diagonal size?

a)

b)

c)

d) None of the above

Solution (c)

Solution a

BC is the altitude between the two parallel sides AB and DC

So Area of trapezium will be given by

7) Find the area and perimeter of the right angle triangle whose hypotenuse is 5 cm and Base is

4cm

a)

b)

e)

d)

Solution (a)

By pythogrous theorem

Height

So Area

Perimeter

8) In an isosceles triangle AABC with AB = AC=13 cm. D is mid-point on BC. Also BC=10 cm which of the following is true?

a) Area of Triangle ABD and ADC are equal

b) Area of triangle ABD is

c) Area of triangle ABC is

d) All the above

Solution (d)

ABD an ADC are congruent triangle, So Area of Triangle ABD and ADC are equal

Also From pythogrous theorem, AD will be given as

AD

So Area of triangle ABC

9) A triangle and a parallelogram have the same base and the same area. The sides of the triangle are 26 cm and 30 cm and parallelogram stands on the base 28 cm. calculate the height of the parallelogram

a) 12 cm

b) 14 cm

c) 10 cm

d) 13 cm

Solution (a)

For triangle, all the sides are given, calculating the area using Heron formula

Now for parallelogram, Area is given by

Or H=12 cm

10) Find the percentage increase in size of the triangle if each side is doubled

a) 200%

b) 300%

c) 400%

d) None of the above

Solution (a)

**Match the column**

Perimeter of rectangle of length 24 cm and diagonal 26 cm | 22cm |

Perimeter of the square of side 10 cm | 17 cm |

Triangle of sides 4,5,6 cm respectively | 40 cm |

Perimeter of parallelogram of two sides 5 and 6 cm respectively | 68 cm |
