### Mensuration Exercise 20A – Selina Concise Mathematics Class 7 ICSE Solutions

**Question 1.**

**The length and the breadth of a rectangular plot are 135 m and 65 m. Find, its perimeter and the cost of fencing it at the rate of ₹60 per m.**

**Solution:**

Given :

Length (l) = 135 m

Breadth (b) = 65 m

Perimeter = 2 (l + b)

= 2(135 + 65)

= 2(200) = 400 m

∴Perimeter of rectangular plot is = 400 m

Cost of fencing per m = ₹60

∴Cost of fencing 400 m = ₹60 x 400 m = ₹24000

**Question 2.**

**The length and breadth of a rectangular field are in the ratio 7 : 4. If its perimeter is 440 m, find its length and breadth. Also, find the cost of fencing it @ ₹150 per m.**

**Solution:**

Given : Perimeter = 440 m

Let the length of rectangular field = lx and breadth = 4x

2(l + b) = Perimeter

2(7x + 4x) = 440 m

2(11x) = 440 m

22x = 440 m

x =

x = 11 m

∴Length = 7x = 7 x 11 = 77 m

Breadth = Ax = 4 x 11 = 44 m

Cost of fencing per m = ₹150

Cost of fencing 440 m = ₹150 x 440 = ₹66,000

**Question 3.**

**The length of a rectangular field is 30 m and its diagonal is 34 m. Find the breadth of the field and its perimeter.**

**Solution:**

**Question 4.**

**The diagonal of a square is 12 cm. Find its perimeter.**

**Solution:**

Diagonal of square = Its side x

Side =

i.e. side = 12 cm

Perimeter of a square = 4 x Side

= 4 x 12 = 48 cm

**Question 5.**

**Find the perimeter of a rectangle whose length = 22.5 m and breadth = 16 dm.**

**Solution:**

Length = 22.5 m

Breadth = 16 dm = 1.6 m

Perimeter of rectangle = 2(l + b)

– 2(22.5 + 1.6)

– 2(24.1) = 48.2 m

**Question 6.**

**Find the perimeter of a rectangle with length = 24 cm and diagonal = 25 cm**

**Solution:**

Length of a rectangle (l) = 24 cm Diagonal = 25 cm

Let breadth of the rectangle = b m

Applying Pythagoras Theorem in triangle ABC,

We get, (AC)^{2} = (AB)^{2} + (BC)^{2}

(25)^{2 }= (24)^{2} + (b)^{2}

625 = 576 + (b)^{2}

625 – 576 = b^{2}

49 = A2

=b

∴b = 7 cm

Now, perimeter of the rectangle

= 2(1 + b)

= 2(24 + 7)

= 2(31)

= 62 cm

**Question 7.**

**The length and breadth of rectangular piece of land are in the ratio of 5 : 3. If the total cost of fencing it at the rate of ₹48 per metre is ₹19,200, find its length and breadth.**

**Solution:**

Ratio in length and breadth of a rectangular piece of land = 5:3

Cost of fencing =₹ 19,200

and rate = ₹48 per m

∴Perimeter = = 400 m 48

Let length = 5x.

Then breadth = 3x

∴Perimeter = 2(l + b)

400 = 2(5x + 3x)

400 = 2 x 8x= 16x

∴16x = 400

⇒ x = = 25

∴Length of the land = 5x= 5 x 25 = 125 m and breadth = 3x = 3 x 25 = 75 m

**Question 8.**

**A wire is in the shape of square of side 20 cm. If the wire is bent into a rectangle of length 24 cm, find its breadth.**

**Solution:**

Side of square = 20 cm

Perimeter of square = 4 x 20 = 80 cm

Or perimeter of rectangle = 80 cm

Length of a rectangle = 24 cm

∴ Perimeter of a rectangle = 2(l + b)

b = – 24

b = 40 – 24 = 16 m

**Question 9.**

**If P = perimeter of a rectangle, l= its length and b = its breadth find :**

**(i) P, if l = 38 cm and b = 27 cm**

**(ii) b, if P = 88 cm and l = 24 cm**

**(iii) l, if P = 96 m and b = 28 m**

**Solution:**

**Question 10.**

**The cost of fencing a square field at the rate of**

**Cost of fencing 440 m = ₹150 x 440 = ₹75 per meter is**

**Cost of fencing 440 m = ₹150 x 440 = ₹67,500. Find the perimeter and the side of the square field.**

**Solution:**

**Question 11.**

**The length and the breadth of a rectangle are 36 cm and 28 cm. If its perimeter is equal to the perimeter of a square, find the side of the square.**

**Solution:**

**Solution:**

**Question 17.**

**The perimeter of a square and the circumference of a circle are equal. If the length of each side of the square is 22 cm, find:**

**(i) perimeter of the square.**

**(ii) circumference of the circle.**

**(iii) radius of the circle.**

**Solution:**

**Question 18.**

**Find the radius of the circle whose circumference is equal to the sum of the circumferences of the circles having radii 15 cm and 8 cm.**

**Solution:**

**Question 19.**

**Find the diameter of a circle whose circumference is equal to the sum of circumference of circles with radii 10 cm, 12 cm and 18 cm.**

**Solution:**

**Solution:**

**Question 21.**

**The radii of two circles are in the ratio 3 : 5, find the ratio between their circumferences.**

**Solution:**

**The perimeters of two squares are in the ratio 8:15, find the ratio between the lengths of their sides.**

**Solution:**

**Question 24.**

**The lengths of the sides of two squares are in the ratio 8:15, find the ratio between their perimeters.**

**Solution:**

Let the side of first square = 8x

∴Perimeter of first square = 4 x Side = 4 x 8x = 32 x

and the side of second squares = 15x

∴Perimeter of second square = 4 x Side = 4 x 15s = 60s

Now, the ratio between their perimeter = 32x: 60x= 8: 15

**Question 25.**

**Each side of a square is 44 cm. Find its perimeter. If this perimeter is equal to the circumference of a circle, find the radius of the circle.**
