30 = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) x QR x PS

= \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) × x × (x + 7)

⇒ 60 = x^{2} + 7x

⇒ x^{2} + 7x – 60 = 0

⇒ x^{2} + 12x – 5x – 60 = 0

⇒ x (x + 12) – 5 (x + 12) = 0

⇒ (x + 12)(x – 5) = 0

⇒ x = 5 or x = -12

⇒ x = -12 is not admissible

⇒ x = 5 cm

base (x) = 5 cm

and corresponding altitude = x + 7 = 5 + 7 = 12 cm.

Question 4.

The difference between the sides at right angles in (RBSESolutions.com) a right-angled triangle is 14 cm. The area of the triangle is 120 cm^{2}. Calculate the perimeter of the triangle.

Solution.

Suppose the sides containing right angle be x and (x – 14) cm

Area of right angled triangle = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) x base x altitude

= \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) × x (x – 14) cm^{2}

area = 120 cm^{2}

⇒ 120 = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) x (x^{2} – 14x)

⇒ x^{2} – 14x – 240 = 0

⇒ x^{2} – 24x + 10x – 240 = 0

⇒ x(x – 24) + 10(x – 24) = 0

⇒ (x – 24)(x + 10) = 0

either x – 24 = 0

⇒ x = 24

or x + 10 = 0

⇒ x = -10 (neglecting)

x = 24 cm (one side)

and another side = (x – 24) = (24 – 14) = 10 cm

Hypotenuse = √(24^{2} + 10^{2}) = √(576 + 100) = √676 = 26 cm

Perimeter of the triangle = 24 + 10 + 26 = 60 cm

Question 5.

A right triangle has the hypotenuse of length q cm and (RBSESolutions.com) one side of length p cm. If q – p = 2 cm, express the length of the third side of the right triangle in terms of q.

Solution.

Let length of the third side of the right triangle be x.

x^{2} + p^{2} = q^{2}

⇒ x^{2} = q2 – p^{2}

⇒ x^{2} = (q + p)(q – p) [∵ q – p = 2]

⇒ x^{2} = (q + q – 2) (2)

⇒ x^{2} = (2q – 2) x 2

⇒ x = √(4q – 4)

⇒ x = 2√(q – 1)

Hence, length of the third side of right triangle is 2√(q – 1)

**Long Answer Type Questions**

Question 1.

Find the area of (RBSESolutions.com) a quadrilateral ABCD in which AB = 3 cm, BC = 4 cm, CD = 4 cm, DA = 5 cm and AC = 5 cm.

Solution.

Here, we are given sides of a quadrilateral ABCD as

AB = 3 cm, BC = 4 cm, CD = 4 cm, DA = 5 cm and AC = 5 cm.

Here, we see that AB^{2} + BC^{2} = AC^{2}

i e. (3)^{2} + (4)^{2} = (5)^{2}

Hence, ∆ABC is right angled at B

= √(7 x 2 x 2 x 3)

= 2√21 cm^{2}

Hence, area of quadrilateral ABCD = ar (∆ABC) + ar (∆ACD) = (6 + 2√21) cm^{2}

Question 2.

A floral design on a floor is made up of 16 tiles which (RBSESolutions.com) are triangular, the sides of the triangle being 9 cm, 28 cm and 35 cm (see figure). Find the cost of polishing the tiles at a rate of 50 paise per cm^{2}.

Solution.

The sides of a triangular tile in floral design are 9 cm, 28 cm and 35 cm respectively.

Semi-perimeter of triangular tile (s) = \(\frac { 9+28+35 }{ 2 }\) = \(\frac { 72 }{ 2 }\) = 36 cm

Area of a triangular tile by using Heron’s formula

Total area of such 16 tiles (RBSESolutions.com) in a floral design

= 16 x 36√6

= 576√6

= 576 x 2.45 cm^{2} [√6 = 2.45 approximate]

= 1411.20 cm^{2} approximate

Cost of polishing the tile = 50 paise/cm^{2}

Cost of polishing the 1411.20 cm^{2} = ₹ 1411.20 x \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) = ₹ 705.60.

Question 3.

A field is in the shape of a trapezium whose parallel (RBSESolutions.com) sides are 25 m and 10 m. The non-parallel sides are 14 m and 13 m. Find the area of the field.

Solution.

PQRS is the given trapezium in which PQ || SR

Through R draw RM || SP

Now, PMRS become a parallelogram

PS = RM = 13 m

PM = SR = 10 m

⇒ MQ = PQ – PM = 25 m – 10 m = 15 m

Now for finding the area of the field which is trapezium in shape, we (RBSESolutions.com) first find the area of the ΔRMQ and then the height of the triangular field RMQ.

Semi-perimeter of ΔRMQ

Area of parallelogram PMRS = base x altitude = 10 m x 11.2 m = 112 m^{2}

Area of trapezium PQRS = area (||gm PMRS) + area (ΔRMQ) = 112 m^{2} + 84 m^{2} = 196 m^{2}

Since, the Rangoli design is made of four similar triangles (RBSESolutions.com) with sides 5 cm, 5 cm and 4 cm respectively.

Similarly, other triangular regions: green, yellow and pink are same in area i.e. = 2√21 cm^{2}.

Hence, total triangular areas used in the Rangoli = 4 x 2√21 cm^{2} = 8√21 cm^{2}.

Question 5.

Calculate the area of the shaded portion (RBSESolutions.com) of the triangle as shown in the figure.

Solution.

In right angled triangle ABD

AB^{2} = AD^{2} + BD^{2}

⇒ AB^{2} = (12)^{2} + (16)^{2}

⇒ AB^{2} = 144 + 256

⇒ AB^{2} = 400 cm^{2}

⇒ AB = √400 cm^{2}

⇒ AB = 20 cm

Now in ΔABC, a = 48 cm, b = 52 cm, c = 20 cm.

Thus, area of shaded portion (RBSESolutions.com) of the triangle = (480 – 96) cm^{2} = 384 cm^{2}
