Perimeter and Area Solution8





In this page perimeter and area solution8 we are going to see solution of some practice questions.

Question 8 :

A plot of land is in the form of a quadrilateral, where one of its diagonals is 250 m long. The two vertices on either side of the diagonal are 70 m and 80m away. What is the area of the plot of the land?

Solution:

Length of diagonal = 250

Length of perpendiculars h₁ = 70 cm

                                    h₂ = 80 cm

Area of quadrilateral = (1/2) x d x (h₁+h₂)

                              = (1/2) x (250) x (70 + 80)

                              =  (125) x (150)

                              =  (125) x (150)

                              = 18750 m²
