In this page perimeter and area solution4 we are going to see solution of some practice questions.
Question 4 :
Which has larger area? A right triangle with the length of the sides containing the right angle being 80 cm and 60 cm or a square of length 50 cm.
Breadth of right triangle = 80 cm
Height of right triangle = 60 cm
Length of each side of square = 50 cm
To find which area is larger we have to find areas of both plots separately.
Area of right angle triangle = (1/2) x b x h
= (1/2) x 80 x 60
= 80 x 30
= 2400 m²
Area of square field = a ²
= 80 x 80
= 6400 m²
From this we come to know that area of square field is more than the right triangle field.
