### Exercise 15.1 Solutions

1. Find the circumference and area of a circle of radius 4.2 cm.

Solution

Radius of a circle = 4.2 cm 2. Find the circumference of a circle whose area is 301.84 cm2.

Solution

Area of a circle = 301.84 cm2
Let r be the radius, then πr2 = 301.84 3. Find the area of a circle whose circum­ference is 44 cm.

Solution

Circumference of a circle = 44 cm
then 2πr = circumference 4. The circumference of a circle exceeds the diameter by 16.8 cm. Find the circum­ference of the circle.

Solution

Let r be the radius of the circle
∴ Circumference = 2r + 16.8 cm
⇒ 2πr = 2r + 16.8
⇒ 2πr – 2r = 16.8 Circumference = 2r + 16.8
= 2×3.92 + 16.8 cm
= 7.84 + 16.8 cm
= 24.64 cm

5. A horse is tied to a pole with 28 m long string. Find the area where the horse can graze. (Take π = 22/7)

Solution

Radius of the circle (r) = Length of the rope = 28 m.
Area of the place where the horse can graze be 6. A steel wire when bent in the form of a square encloses an area of 121 cm2. If the same wire is bent in the form of a circle, find the area of the circle.

Solution

Area of square formed by a wire =121 cm2
∴ Side of square (a) = √Area = √121 = 11 cm
Perimeter of the square = 4×side = 4×11 = 44 cm
∴ Circumference of the circle formed by the wire = 44cm 7. The circumference of two circles are in the ratio 2 : 3. Find the ratio of their areas.

Solution

Let R and r be the radii of two circles and their ratio between them circumference = 2 : 3 8. The sum of radii of two circles is 140 cm and the difference of their circum­ferences is 88 cm. Find the diameters of the circles.

Solution

Let R and r be the radii of two circles Then R + r = 140 cm …(i)
and difference of their circumferences ∴ First diameter = 2R = 2×77 = 154 cm
∴ Second diameter = 2r = 2×63 = 126 cm

9. Find the radius of a circle whose circumference is equal to the sum of the circumferences of two circles of radii 15 cm and 18 cm.

Solution

Let the radius of a circle be r.
Circumference of a circle = 2πr
Let the radii of two circles are r1 and r2 whose
values are 15 cm and 18 cm respectively.
i.e., r1 = 15 cm and r2 = 18 cm
Now, by given condition,
Circumference of circle = Circumference of first circle + Circumference of second circle
⇒ 2πr = 2π r1 + 2πr2
⇒ r = r1 + r2
⇒ r = 15 + 18
∴ r = 33 cm
Hence, required radius of a circle is 33 cm.

10. The radii of two circles are 8 cm and 6 cm respectively. Find the radius of the circle having its area equal to the sum of the areas of the two circles.

Solution

Radius of first circle (r1) = 8 cm
and radius of second circle (r2) = 6 cm Let R be the circles whose area is the sum of given two circles.
Then, area = πR2
πR2 = 100π
⇒ R2 = 100 = 102
⇒ R = 10 cm
∴ Radius of the required circle = 10 cm

11. The radii of two circles are 19 cm and 9 cm respectively. Find the radius and area of the circle which has its circumference equal to the sum of the circumferences of the two circles.

Solution

Radius of the first circle (r1) = 19 cm
and radius of the second circle (r2) = 9 cm S
um of their circumferences = 2πr1 + 2πr2
= 2π (r+ r2) = 2π (19 + 9) cm
= 2π × 28 = 56π cm
Let R be the radius of the circle whose circumference is the sum of the circum­ferences of given two circles, then 12. The area of a circular playground is 22176 m2. Find the cost of fencing this ground at the rate of ₹50 per metre.

Solution

Given, area of a circular playground = 22176 m2
r2 = 22176 [area of circle r2] ∴ Cost of fencing this ground = 528 50 = 26400

13. The side of a square is 10 cm. Find the area of circumscribed and inscribed circles.

Solution

ABCD is a square whose each side is 10 cm
∴ AB = BC = CD = DA = 10 cm
AC and BD are its diagonals 14. If a square is inscribed in a circle, find the ratio of the areas of the circle and the square.

Solution

Let r be the radius of the circle a be the side of the square
