## NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Mensuration

**Class –VIII Mathematics (Ex. 11.1)**

**NCERT SOLUTION**

**1. A square and a rectangular field with measurements as given in the figure have the same perimeter. **

**Which field has a larger area?**

**Ans.** Given: The side of a square = 60 m

And the length of rectangular field = 80 m

According to question,

Perimeter of rectangular field

= Perimeter of square field

= 4 side

m

Now Area of Square field

=

= = 3600 m^{2}

And Area of Rectangular field

= length breadth = 80 40

= 3200

Hence, area of square field is larger.

**2. Mrs. Kaushik has a square plot with the measurement as shown in the figure. She wants to construct a house in the middle of the plot. A garden is developed around the house. Find the total cost of developing a garden around the house at the rate of ` 55 **

**per m ^{2}.**

**Ans.** Side of a square plot = 25 m

Area of square plot =

= = 625 m^{2}

Length of the house = 20 m and

Breadth of the house = 15 m

Area of the house = length breadth

= 20 15 = 300 m^{2}

Area of garden = Area of square plot

– Area of house

= 625 – 300 = 325 m^{2}

Cost of developing the garden per sq. m = ` 55

Cost of developing the garden 325 sq. m = ` 55 325

= ` 17,875

Hence total cost of developing a garden around is ` 17,875.

**3. The shape of a garden is rectangular in the middle and semi-circular at the ends as shown in the diagram. Find the area and the perimeter of this garden [Length of rectangle is 20 – (3.5 + 3.5 meters]**

**Ans.** Given: Total length = 20 m

Diameter of semi circle = 7 m

Radius of semi circle = = 3.5 m

Length of rectangular field

= 20 – (3.5 + 3.5) = 20 – 7 = 13 m

Breadth of the rectangular field = 7 m

Area of rectangular field =

= 13 7 = 91

Area of two semi circles =

= = 38.5 m^{2}

Area of garden = 91 + 38.5 = 129.5 m^{2}

Now Perimeter of two semi circles = = 22 m

And Perimeter of garden

= 22 + 13 + 13

= 48 m

**4. A flooring tile has the shape of a parallelogram whose base is 24 cm and the corresponding height is 10 cm. How many such tiles are required to cover a floor of area 1080? [If required you can split the tiles in whatever way you want to fill up the corners]**

**Ans.** Given: Base of flooring tile = 24 cm

= 0.24 m

Corresponding height of a flooring tile

= 10 cm = 0.10 m

Now Area of flooring tile

= Base Altitude

= 0.24 0.10

= 0.024 m^{2}

Number of tiles required to cover the floor

=

=

= 45000 tiles

Hence 45000 tiles are required to cover the floor.

**5. An ant is moving around a few food pieces of different shapes scattered on the floor. For which food-piece would the ant have to take a longer round? Remember, circumference of a circle can be obtained by using the expression ****where is the radius of the circle.**

**Ans.** **(a)** Radius =

= 1.4 cm

Circumference of semi circle =

= = 4.4 cm

Total distance covered by the ant

= Circumference of semi circle + Diameter

= 4.4 + 2.8 = 7.2 cm

**(b)** Diameter of semi circle = 2.8 cm

Radius = = 1.4 cm

Circumference of semi circle =

= = 4.4 cm

Total distance covered by the ant

= 1.5 + 2.8 + 1.5 + 4.4 = 10.2 cm

**(c)** Diameter of semi circle = 2.8 cm

Radius =

= 1.4 cm

Circumference of semi circle =

= = 4.4 cm

Total distance covered by the ant

= 2 + 2 + 4.4 = 8.4 cm

Hence for figure (b) food piece, the ant would take a longer round.
