##### Question 1:

The radii of two circles are 19 cm and 9 cm respectively. Find the radius of the circle which has circumference equal to the sum of the circumferences of the two circles. Radius of first circle (r1) = 19 cm
Radius of second circle (r2) = 9 cm
Let radius of third circle be R cm.
According to question,
Circumference of first circle
+ Circumference of second circle
= Circumference of third circle
2$\mathrm{\pi }$r1 + 2$\mathrm{\pi }$r2 = 2$\mathrm{\pi }$R
2$\mathrm{\pi }$ [r1 + r2] = 2$\mathrm{\pi }$R
19 + 9 = R
∴ R = 28
∴ Radius of third circle (R) = 28 cm

##### Question 2:

The radii of two circles are 8 cm and 6 cm respectively. Find the radius of the circle having area equal to the sum of the areas of two circles.

Radius of first circle (r1) = 8 cm
Radius of second circle (r2) = 6 cm
Let radius of third circle be R cm.
According to question,
Area of third circle = Area of first circle
+ Area of second circle ##### Question 3:

The diameter of the region representing Gold score is 21 cm and each of the other bands is 10.5 cm wide. Find the area of each of the five scoring regions.  ∴ Area of Red region = 1039.5 cm2
[Area of Blue scoring region] = [Combined area of Red, Blue and Gold region] − [Combined area of Gold and Red region]  ##### Question 4:

The wheels of a car are of diameter 80 cm each. How many complete revolutions does each wheel make in 10 minutes when the car is travelling at a speed of 66 km per hour?  ##### Question 5:

(i) 2 units

##### Question 6:

Find the area of a sector of a circle with radius 6 cm, if angle of the sector is 60$°$. ##### Question 7:

Find the area of a quadrant of a circle whose circumference is 22 cm. ##### Question 8:

The length of the minute hand of a clock is 14 cm. Find the area swept by the minute hand in 5 minutes. ##### Question 9:

A chord of a circle of radius 10 cm subtends a right angle at the centre. Find the area of the corresponding: (i) minor segment (ii) major sector. (Use $\mathrm{\pi }$ = 3.14)  ##### Question 10:

In a circle of radius 21 cm, an arc subtends an angle of 60$°$ at the centre. Find : (i) the length of the arc (ii) area of the sector formed by the arc (iii) area of the segment formed by the corresponding chord.

Radius of circle (R) = 21 cm  ##### Question 11: Radius of circle = (R) = 15 cm
Central angle ($\mathrm{\theta }$) = 60$°$ In ΔOAB, central angle $\mathrm{\theta }$ = 60$°$
OA = OB = 15 cm
$\angle$A = $\angle$B
Now, $\angle$A + $\angle$B + $\angle$O = 180$°$
2$\angle$A + 60$°$ = 180$°$
$\angle$A = 60$°$
$\angle$A = $\angle$B = 60$°$
∴ ΔOAB is equilateral triangle. ##### Question 12: Radius of circle (R) = 12 cm
Central angle ($\mathrm{\theta }$) = 120$°$  = 150.72 – 36 × 1.73
= (150.72 – 62.28) cm2 = 88.44 cm2
∴ Area of the segment = 88.44 cm2.
