### Solutions for Mensuration Questions SSC CGL Set 3

Ques:1 Ans-C
Circumference of circle = 2Πr
=> 572 = 2 x 22/7 x r
=> r =(572 x7)/2 x 22 = 91
=>Length of the floor = 91 + 6 = 97 m
=>2(l+b) =356 ; 2 (97 + b) = 356
=> 97 + b = 178
=> B = 178 – 97 = 81 m
=> Area of the floor = 97 x 81 = 7857 sq. m
=> Required cost = 12 x 7857 = ₹944284

Ques:2 Ans – B
Side of a square = √Area
= √324 = 18 cm
Length of the rectangle = 20 cm and breadth = 18 – 5 = 13 cm
Area of rectangle = Length x breadth = 20 x 13 = 260 sq. cm

Ques:3 Ans –B
3x = 6y ; x = side of triangle and y = side of regular hexagon
=> x = 2y ; Area of triangle = √3/4 x2
=> Area of hexagon = 6 X √3/4y2
=> 6 X √3/4 X x2/4 = 3 √3/82
=> Required ratio = √3/4x2 : 3 √3/8 2 = 2 : 3

Ques:4 Ans – D
BC= BX + XC = 3x+ 2x = 5x cm
CD = CY + YD = 2y + y = 3y cm
5x X 3y =120; BC = 20 cm and CD = 6 cm ; BX = 3/5 x 20 = 12cm
YD = 1/3 x 6 = 2 cm
ZD = ¼ x 20 = 5 cm
Area of the shaded region = 120 – tri ABC – tri ZYD = 120 – ½ x 12 x 6 – ½ x 2 x 5 = 79 sq. cm

Ques:5 Ans – A
Side of the square = x units and the side of regular hexagon = y units
4x = 6y => x = 3/2 y;Area of the square = 9/4y2
Area of the hexagon = 3√3/2 x y2
= 3√3/2 x y2 : 9/4y2 = 2√3:3

Ques:6 Ans-A
Time take by A to complete one revolution = 750/ (6.75 x 5)/18 sec = (750×18)/(6.75×5)sec.
Time taken by B = (750 x 18)/(4.75 x 5) sec
Time required = LCM of numerators / HCF of denominators = 750 x 1800 / 125 = 1800 x 6 seconds
= (1800 x 6)/3600 = 3 hours

Ques:7 Ans-A
Area of the floor = 20 x 10 = 200 sq. ft.
Area covered by black tiles = 2(20 + 20 + 6 + 6) = 104 sq. ft
Remaining in Space = 200 – 104 = 96 sq. ft.
Area covered by white tiles = 1/3 x 96 = 32 sq. ft.
Area covered by blue tiles = 96 – 32 = 64 sq. ft.
Area of 1 tile = (2)2 = 4sq. ft.
No. of blue tile = 64/4 = 16

Ques:8 Ans – D
Let the length and breadth be x and y
Area =xy sq m
x X 120/100 X y X 80/100 = 192
=> x X 120/100 X y X 80/100 = 192
=> x X 1.2 X y X 0.8 = 192
=> xy = 192/1.2 X 0.8 = 200 square metre

Ques:9 Ans – C
Sin 15° = sin (45° – 30°) = sin 45° x cos 30° – cos 45° x sin 30°
=1/√2 x √3/2 – 1/√2 x 1/2 = √3/2√2 – 1/2√2 = (√3-1)/2√2
cos 15° = cos (45° – 30°) = cos 45°. cos 30° + sin 45°. sin 30° = 1/√2 x √3/2 + 1/√2 x ½
=√3/2√2 + 1/2√2 = (√3+1)/2√2; AB = AC sin 15°
= (√3 – 1)/2√2 m
BC =AC cos 15° = (√3+1)/2√2 m
Area of ABC = 1/2 x AB x BC = (1/2 x (√3-1)/2√2 x (√3+1)/2√2) sq m
(3-1)/16 sq m
1/8 sq m = 10000/8 = 1250 sq m
