Question 28:
If each side of a rhombus is doubled, how much will its area increase?
(a) 1.5 times                                                (b) 2 times
(c) 3 times                                                   (d) 4 times
Solution:
(b) Let b be the side and h be the height of a rhombus.
∴  Area of rhombus = b x h                 [∵ area of rhombus = base x corresponding height]
If each side of rhombus is doubled, then side of rhombus = 2b
Now, area of rhombus = 2b x h = 2(b x h) = 2 times of original
Hence, the area of rhombus will be increased by 2 times.

Question 29:
If the sides of a parallelogram are increased to twice its original lengths, how much will the perimeter of the new parallelogram increase?
(a) 1.5 times                                                (b) 2 times
(c) 3 times                                                   (d) 4 times
Solution:
(b) Let the length and breadth of the parallelogram be l and b, respectively.
Then, perimeter = 2(1 + b) [∵ perimeter of parallelogram = 2 x (length + breadth)]
If both sides are increased twice, then new length and breadth will be 21 and 2b, respectively.
Now, new perimeter = 2(21 + 2b) = 2 x 2(l + b) = 2 times of original perimeter.
Hence, the perimeter of parallelogram will be increased 2 times.

Question 30:
If radius of a circle is increased to twice its original length, how much will the area of the circle increase?
(a) 1.4 times              (b) 2 times                 (c) 3 times                 (d) 4 times
Solution:
(d) Let r be the radius of the circle.
∴ Area of circle = π2
If radius is increased to twice its original length, then radius will be 2r.
Now, area of new circle = π(2r)2 = 4π2 = 4 times of original area
Hence, the area of circle will be increased by 4 times.

Question 31:

(a) Let r be the radius of a circle.
∴ Area of circle = πr2
If radius is tripled, then new radius will be 3r.
∴ Area of new circle = π(3r)2 = 9π2 = 9 times of original
Hence, the area of a cirlce becomes 9 times to the original area.

Question 57:
In the given figure, perimeter of (ii) is greater than that of (i), but its area is smaller than that of (i).
ncert-exemplar-problems-class-7-maths-perimeter-and-area-57
Solution :
True
Perimeter is the sum of sides of any polygon and area is space that the polygon required. So, by observing the figures we can say that, perimeter of (ii) is greater than (i) and area is less than that of (i).

Question 58:

Question 67:
Triangles having the same base have equal area.
Solution :
False
∵ Area of triangle = 1/2 x Base x Height
So, area of triangle does not only depend on base, it also depends on height. Hence, if triangles have equal base and equal height, then only their areas are equal.

Question 68:
Ratio of circumference of a circle to its radius is always Zπ : 1.

True

Question 73:
A hedge boundary needs to be planted around a rectangular lawn of size 72 m x 18 m. If 3 shrubs can be planted in a metre of hedge, how many shrubs will be planted in all?
Solution :
Here, length of rectangular lawn = 72 m and breadth of rectangular lawn = 18 m
∵ Perimeter of rectangle =2 x (Length + Breadth)
∴ Perimeter of rectangular lawn = 2 (72 + 18) = 2 (90) = 180 m
If 3 shrubs can be planted in a metre of hedge.
Then, number of shrubs = 3 x Perimeter of rectangular lawn = 3 x 180 = 540

Question 74:
People of Khejadli village take good care of plants, trees and animals. They say that plants and animals can survive without us, but we cannot survive without them. Inspired by her elders Amrita marked some land for her pets (camel and ox) and plants. Find the ratio of the areas kept for animals and plants to the living area. What value depicted here?

Solution :
We know that,
Area of rectangle =l x b and area of circle = πr2
From the given figure,
Area of total rectangular land = 15 m x 10 m=150 m2
Area of land covered by plants = 9 m x 1 m = 9 m2
Area of land covered by camel = 5 m x 3 m = 15 m2
∴ Region of land covered by ox is circular area.
So, diameter, d = 2.8 m

Question 76:
A wall of a room is of dimensions 5 m x 4 m. It has a window of dimensions 1.5 m x 1 m and a door of dimensions 2.25 m x 1 m. Find the area of the wall, which is to be painted.
Solution :
Given,a wall of a room is of dimensions 5 m x m.
∴ Length of the room = 5 m and breadth of the room = 4 m
∴ Area of the room = l x b=5 x 4 = 20 m2
Also, length of the window = 1.5 m and breadth of the window = 1 m                              [given]
∴ Area of the window = l x b = 1.5 x 1 = 1.5 m2
Now, length of the door = 2.25 m and breadth of the door = 1 m
∴ Area of the door = l x b = 2.25 x 1 = 2.25 m2
Now, area of the wall to be painted = Area of the room – (Area of the window + Area of the door)
= 20 – (1.5 + 2.25) = 20 – 3.75 = 16.25 m2
