2. Prove that the length of the altitude of an equilateral triangle of side ‘a’ is √3/2a

3. The sides of a triangular field are 120m, 160m & 200m. Find the cost of ploughing it at the cost of 25 paise per square m.

4. The length of sides of a right angled triangle forming the right angle are 5x cm and (3x – 1) cm. If the area of the triangle is 60 cm2, find its all sides.

5. Find the perimeter of an isosceles right angled triangle having area 200 cm2.

6. Find the area of a quadrilateral ABCD in which AB = 3cm, BC = 4 cm, CD = 4 cm, DA = 5 cm and AC = 5cm.

7. A triangle and a parallelogram have the same base and the same area. If the sides of the triangle are 26cm, 28cm and 30cm, and parallelogram stands on the base 28cm, find the height of the parallelogram.

4. Mark the point(5,3), (-5,3) & (2,-6) and join them in order and name the figure.

5. Mark the coordinates on graph paper (-4,0), (2,0), (4,3) & (-2,3) and find area of specific figure formed.

6. Mark the points A(2,0), B(2,2), C(0,2) on graph paper. Join OB, BC and OC. Name the figure and find its area.


  1. Very informative post indeed.. being enrolled in:
    I was looking for such articles online to assist me and also your post helped me a lot.:)

  2. Find the area of quadrilateral ABCD whose sides are 9m,40m.28m and 15m is.................
    Let AB =9 m, BC=40m, CD= 28m and DA = 15m
    In quad. ABCD, join diagonal AC
    Take a look at the lengths of the sides given closely. You will see that 92 + 402 = 412. (Pythgorean triplets) So in trainagle ABC, AB and BC are two sides of a right triangle with Angle ABC =90 deg with its diagonal being AC. Apply pythagoras theorem for triangle ABC to get AC = 41cm.
    Now we find two triangles ABC and ACD with sides already known. Apply Heron 's formula to get the areas of the two triangles. (Alternately, area of triangle ABC can be found more easily since BC is the height and AB is the base.)
    Area of ABC = 180 cm2. Area of ACD = 126 cm2.
    Simply sum the two areas to get the total area to be 306 cm2.
