Question 1.
In the given figure, ABDE is a parallelogram, find the area of the trapezium ACDE. Solution:
In the given figure,
ABDE is a parallelogram and ACDE is a trapezium
whose bases are 13 m and height = 6.5 m
Area = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ (Sum of parallel sides) × Height
= $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ (13 + 7) × 6.5 m2
= $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ × 20 × 6.5 = 65 m2

Question 2.
In the given figure, the length of the rectangle is 28 cm. Find the area of the shaded region. Solution:
In the given figure,
Length of rectangle = 28 cm
Then diameter of each circle = $$\frac { 28 }{ 2 }$$ = 14 cm
and radius = $$\frac { 14 }{ 2 }$$ = 7 cm
Breadth of rectangle = 14 cm Question 3.
In the given figure, ABCD is a square of side 14 cm. A, B, C, and D are centers of circular arcs of equal radius. Find the perimeter and the area of the shaded region. Solution:
In the given figure, ABCD is a square of side 14 cm
Area of square = (Side)2 = (14)2 = 196 cm2
Now radius of each quadrant = $$\frac { 14 }{ 2 }$$ = 7 cm
Area of 4 quadrants = 7 × $$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$ × πr2
= $$\frac { 22 }{ 7 }$$ × 7 × 7 = 154 cm2
Area of shaded portion = Area of square – Area of 4 quadrant
= 196 – 154 = 42 cm2
and perimeter = 4 × $$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$ × 2πr
= 2πr = 2 × $$\frac { 22 }{ 7 }$$ × 7 = 44 cm
