Perimeter and Area Solution6





In this page perimeter and area solution6 we are going to see solution of some practice questions.

Question 6 :

A diagonal of a quadrilateral is 25 cm, and perpendicular on it from the opposite vertices are 5 cm and 7 cm. Find the area of the quadrilateral.

Solution:

Length of diagonal = 25 cm

Length of perpendiculars h₁ = 5 cm

                                    h₂ = 7 cm

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

                              = (1/2) x (25) x (5 + 7)

                              = (1/2) x (25) x (12)

                              = (25) x (6)

                              = 150 cm²
