## Tamilnadu Samacheer Kalvi 7th Maths Solutions Term 1 Chapter 2 Measurements Ex 2.2

Question 1.

Find the area of rhombus PQRS shown in the following figures.

Solution:

(i) Given the diagonals d_{1} = 16 cm ; d_{2} = 8 cm

Area of the rhombus = \(\frac{1}{2}\)(d_{1} × d_{2}) sq. units

= \(\frac{1}{2}\) × 16 × 8 cm^{2} = 64 cm^{2}

Area of the rhombus = 64 cm^{2}

(ii) Given base b = 15 cm ; Height h = 11 cm

Area of the rhombus = (base × height) sq. units

= 15 × 11 cm^{2} = 165 cm^{2}

Area of the rhombus = 165 cm^{2}

Question 2.

Find the area of a rhombus whose base is 14 cm and height is 9 cm.

Solution:

Given base b = 14 cm ; Height h = 9 cm

Area of the rhombus = b × h sq. units

= 14 × 9 cm^{2} = 126 cm^{2}

Question 3.

Find the missing value.

Solution:

(i) Given diagonal d_{1} = 19 cm ; d_{2} = 16 cm

Area of the rhombus = \(\frac{1}{2}\)(d_{1} × d_{2}) sq. units = \(\frac{1}{2}\) × 19 × 16

= 152 cm^{2}

(ii) Given diagonal d_{1} = 26 m ; Area of the rhombus = 468 sq. m

= \(\frac{1}{2}\)(d_{1} × d_{2}) = 468 ; (26 × d_{2}) = 468 × 2

d_{2} = \(\frac{468 \times 2}{26}\) = d_{2} = 36 m

(iii) Given diagonal d_{2} = 12 mm; Area of the rhombus = 180 sq. m

\(\frac{1}{2}\)(d_{1} × d_{2}) = 180

\(\frac{1}{2}\)(d_{1} × 12) = 180

d_{1} × 12 = 180 × 2

d_{1} = \(\frac{180 \times 2}{12}\)

d_{1} = 30 mm

Diagonal d_{1} = 30 mm

Tabulating the results we have

Question 4.

The area of a rhombus is 100 sq. cm and length of one of its diagonals is 8 cm. Find the length of the other diagonal.

Solution:

Given the length of one diagonal d_{1} = 8 cm ; Area of the rhombus = 100 sq. cm

\(\frac{1}{2}\)(d_{1} × d_{2}) = 100

\(\frac{1}{2}\) × 8 × d_{2} = 100

8 × d_{2} = 100 × 2

d_{2} = \(\frac{100 \times 2}{8}\) = 25 cm

Length of the other diagonal d_{2} = 25 cm

Question 5.

A sweet is in the shape of rhombus whose diagonals are given as 4 cm and 5 cm. The surface of the sweet should be covered by an aluminum foil. Find the cost of aluminum foil used for 400 such sweets at the rate of ₹ 7 per 100 sq. cm.

Solution:

Diagonals d_{1} = 4 cm and d_{2} = 5 cm

Area of one rhombus shaped sweet = \(\frac{1}{2}\)(d_{1} × d_{2}) sq. units = \(\frac{1}{2}\) × 4× 5 cm^{2} = 10 cm^{2}

Aluminum foil used to cover 1 sweet = 10 cm^{2}

∴ Aluminum foil used to cover 400 sweets = 400 × 10 = 4000 cm^{2}

Cost of aluminum foil for 100 cm^{2} = ₹ 7

∴ Cost of aluminum foil for 4000 cm^{2} = \(\frac{4000}{100}\) × 7 = ₹ 280

∴ Cost of aluminum foil used = ₹ 280.

Objective Type Questions

Question 6.

The area of the rhombus with side 4 cm and height 3 cm is

(i) 7 sq. cm

(ii) 24 sq. cm

(iii) 12 sq. cm

(iv) 10 sq. cm

Solution:

(iii) 12 sq. cm

Hint:

Area = Base × Height = 4 × 3 = 12 cm^{2}

Question 7.

The area of the rhombus when both diagonals measuring 8 cm is

(i) 64 sq. cm

(ii) 32 sq. cm

(iii) 30 sq. cm

(iv) 16 sq. cm

Solution:

(ii) 32 sq. cm

Hint:

Area = \(\frac{1}{2}\)(d_{1} × d_{2}) = \(\frac{1}{2}\) × 8 × 8 = 32

Question 8.

The area of the rhombus is 128 sq. cm. and the length of one diagonal is 32 cm. The length of the other diagonal is

(i) 12 cm

(ii) 8 cm

(iii) 4 cm

(iv) 20 cm

Solution:

(ii) 8 cm

Hint:

\(\frac{1}{2}\) × d_{1} × d_{2} = 128 ⇒ d_{2} = \(\frac{128 \times 2}{32}\) = 8cm
