### Examples with Solution

Example1: What will be the area and perimeter of triangular plot whose sides are 17 m, 8m and 15m long?
Solution: Firstly, we will check which kind of triangle it is. Since, $$8^{2} + 15^{2} = 17^{2}....... (H^{2} = P^{2} + B^{2}) 64 + 225 = 289 = 289$$

Therefore, given triangle is a right angle triangle with: Hypotenuse $$= 17^{2}$$ Base or Perpendicular $$= 8$$ or 15 Next thing we need is: Formula of Area and perimeter Area of triangle $$= 1/2$$ Basetimes perpendicular $$\Rightarrow 1/2 8 \times 15 \Rightarrow 60 m^{2}$$
Also, Perimeter $$= 8 +15 + 17 = 40 m$$
Example2: What will be the area of equilateral triangle whose side is 4 cm.
Solution: Very simple question. You just need formula of area of equilateral triangle ( Equilateral triangle whose sides are equal) Area of equilateral triangle $$= \sqrt{3}/4 \times (side)^{2} \Rightarrow \sqrt{3}/4 \times {4}^{2} \Rightarrow 4 \sqrt{3} cm^{2}$$
Example3: The radius of a circle is 6cm. What is radius of another circle whose area is 36 times that of first?
Solution: We know that, Area is directly proportional to square of radius $$\Rightarrow (\text{Area of 2nd})/ (\text{Area of 1st}) = (\text{Radius of 2nd})^{2}/ (\text{Radius of 1st})^{2} \Rightarrow 36/1 = (\text{Radius of 2nd})^{2}/ 36 \Rightarrow \text{Radius} = 36 m$$
Example4: One brick measures $$30cm \times 20cm \times 15cm$$ How many bricks will be required for a wall 30m times 2m times 1.5m?
Solution: Obviously, Number of bricks = (Total  volume  of  wall) / (volume  of  1  brick)
Note: Units should be same
Number of bricks $$= (30 \times 2 \times 1.5 \times 100 \times 100 \times 100) (30 \times 20 \times 15) \Rightarrow 10000$$ bricks.
Example5: Surface area of cube is $$150cm^{2}$$. Find its volume and diagonal.
Solution: Surface area of cube $$= 6 a^{2} = 150 \Rightarrow a = 5cm$$ Now, Volume of cube $$= a^{3} = 5^{3} = 125cm^{3}$$ Diagonal $$= a \sqrt{3} = 5 \times \sqrt{3} \Rightarrow 8.66cm$$
