Q-8 A floral design on a floor is made up of 16 tiles which are triangular, the sides of the triangle being (see Fig) . Find the cost of polishing the tiles at the rate of

Solution:

- Semi perimeter of each of the triangular shapes
- Therefore, area of each of the triangular tiles
- Therefore, total area of
- Cost of polishing tiles =
- Therefore, total cost of polishing tiles

Q-9 A field is in the shape of a trapezium whose parallel sides are 25 m and 10 m. The non-parallel sides are 14 m and 13 m. find the area of the field.

Solution:

Given,

- SBQP be the trapezium with parallel sides and the non-parallel sides

Construction,

- Draw
- Draw , therefore QPSR is now a parallelogram

In ,

- and
- .
- Therefore, semi perimeter of the

Therefore, by Herons formula, area of the

Area of the parallelogram

Therefore, area of the trapezium
