Question Detail
The percentage increase in the area of a rectangle, if each of its sides is increased by 20% is:
 32%
 34%
 42%
 44%
Answer: Option D
Explanation:
Let original length = x metres and original breadth = y metres.
\begin{aligned}
\text{Original area } = \text{xy } m^2 \\
\text{New Length }= \frac{120}{100}x = \frac{6}{5}x \\
\text{New Breadth }= \frac{120}{100}y = \frac{6}{5}y \\
=>\text{New Area }= \frac{6}{5}x * \frac{6}{5}y \\
=>\text{New Area }= \frac{36}{25}xy \\
\text{Area Difference} = \frac{36}{25}xy  xy \\
= \frac{11}{25}xy \\
Increase \% = \frac{Differnce}{Actual}*100 \\
= \frac{11xy}{25}*\frac{1}{xy}*100 = 44\%
\end{aligned}
1. The length of a rectangle is three times of its width. If the length of the diagonal is \begin{aligned}8\sqrt{10}\end{aligned}, then find the perimeter of the rectangle.
 60 cm
 62 cm
 64 cm
 66 cm
Answer: Option C
Explanation:
Let Breadth = x cm,
then, Length = 3x cm
\begin{aligned}
x^2+{(3x)}^2 = {(8\sqrt{10})}^2 \\
=> 10x^2 = 640 \\
=> x = 8 \\
\end{aligned}
So, length = 24 cm and breadth = 8 cm
Perimeter = 2(l+b)
= 2(24+8) = 64 cm
2. If the circumference of a circle increases from 4pi to 8 pi, what change occurs in the area ?
 Area is quadrupled
 Area is tripled
 Area is doubles
 Area become half
Answer: Option A
Explanation:
\begin{aligned}
2\pi R1 = 4 \pi \\
=> R1 = 2 \\
2\pi R2 = 8 \pi \\
=> R2 = 4 \\
\text{Original Area =} 4\pi * 2^2 \\
= 16 \pi \\
\text{New Area =} 4\pi * 4^2 \\
= 64 \pi
\end{aligned}
So the area quadruples.
3. The ratio between the length and the breadth of a rectangular park is 3 : 2. If a man cycling along the boundary of the park at the speed of 12 km/hr completes one round in 8 minutes, then the area of the park (in sq. m) is:
 \begin{aligned} 152600 m^2\end{aligned}
 \begin{aligned} 153500 m^2\end{aligned}
 \begin{aligned} 153600 m^2\end{aligned}
 \begin{aligned} 153800 m^2\end{aligned}
Answer: Option C
Explanation:
Question seems to be typical, but trust me it is too easy to solve, before solving this, lets analyse how we can solve this.
We are having speed and time so we can calculate the distance or perimeter in this question.
Then by applying the formula of perimeter of rectangle we can get value of length and breadth, So finally can get the area. Lets solve it:
Perimeter = Distance travelled in 8 minutes,
=> Perimeter = 12000/60 * 8 = 1600 meter. [because Distance = Speed * Time]
As per question length is 3x and width is 2x
We know perimeter of rectangle is 2(L+B)
So, 2(3x+2x) = 1600
=> x = 160
So Length = 160*3 = 480 meter
and Width = 160*2 = 320 meter
Finally, Area = length * breadth
= 480 * 320 = 153600
4. One side of rectangular field is 15 meter and one of its diagonals is 17 meter. Then find the area of the field.
 \begin{aligned} 120m^2 \end{aligned}
 \begin{aligned} 130m^2 \end{aligned}
 \begin{aligned} 140m^2 \end{aligned}
 \begin{aligned} 150m^2 \end{aligned}
Answer: Option A
Explanation:
\begin{aligned}
\text{We know }h^2 = b^2+h^2 \\
=>\text{Other side }= \sqrt{(17)^2(15)^2} \\
= \sqrt{289225} = \sqrt{64} \\
= 8 meter \\
Area = Length \times Breadth \\
= 15\times8 m^2 = 120 m^2
\end{aligned}
5. If the area of a square with the side a is equal to the area of a triangle with base a, then the altitude of the triangle is.
 a
 a/2
 2a
 None of above
Answer: Option C
Explanation:
\begin{aligned}
\text{We know area of square =}a^2 \\
\text{Area of triangle =}\frac{1}{2}*a*h \\
=> \frac{1}{2}*a*h = a^2 \\
=> h = 2a
\end{aligned}
