**Exercise 11.3**

**Short Answer Type Questions (Q. No. 1-8)**

**Question. 1 **Find the radius of a circle whose circumference is equal to the sum of the circumference of two circles

of radii 15cm and 18cm.

**Solution.**

According to the question,

Circumference of bigger circle = Circumference of first circle + Circumference of second circle

Hence, required radius of circle is 33cm.

**Question. 2 **In figure, a square of diagonal 8 cm is inscribed in a circle. Find the area of the shaded region.

**Solution.** To find the area of shaded region first we have to find the area of the circle and the inscribed square.

and the radius of circle be ‘*r*’.

Let the side of the square be *a* cm.

Given that, length of diagonal of square, *AC* = 8cm

Thus, radius of circle, *r* = 8/2 = 4 cm

Here ∠*ABC* = 90^{o}

By applying Pythagoras theorem in right angled Δ*ABC*, we get:

Thus, area of shaded region = 18.28 cm

**Question. 3 **Find the area of a sector of a circle of radius 28cm and central angle 45°.

**Solution. **

Given, radius of a circle, *r = *28cm

And central angle, *θ* = 45°

**Question. 4 **The wheel of a motor cycle is of radius 35cm. How many revolutions per minute must the wheel make,

so as to keep a speed of 66 km/h?

**Solution.**

**Question. 5 **A cow is tied with a rope of length 14m at the corner of a rectangular field of dimensions 20m ´ 16m.

Find the area of the field in which the cow can graze.

**Solution.**

The area covered by cow for grazing is in the form of a sector with radius 14m (= length of the rope).

**Question. 6 **Find the area of the flower bed (with semi-circular ends) shown in figure.

**Solution.**

The flower bed is a combination of a rectangle and two semicircles as shown in the figure given below:

**Question. 7 **In figure, *AB *is a diameter of the circle, *AC = *6cm and *BC = *8cm. Find the area of the shaded region, (use *π *= 3.14)

**Solution.**

Given figure is a combination of a circle and a Δ*ACB.*

Since, angle in a semi circle is equal to 90°.

∴ ∠C = 90°

Thus, applying Pythagoras theorem in right angled Δ*ACB, *

**Solution. **Given shaded region is a combination of a rectangle and a semi circle as shown below:
