 1.  
What is the height of ΔPQR, if its area is 8 in.2 and the measure of QR is 4 in.?


a.
32 in.
b.
4 in.
c.
2 in.
d.
None of the above


Solution:

Area of triangle = 1 / 2 × base × height.
[Formula.]

8 = 1 / 2 × QR × PS
[Substitute the value of area of ΔPQR.]

QR × PS = 16
[Multiply each side by 2.]

4 × PS = 16
[Substitute QR = 4.]

PS = 4
[Divide each side by 4.]

So, height of the ΔPQR = 4 in.

 2.  
Find the perimeter of the equilateral triangle LMN.


a.
18 m
b.
28 m
c.
36 m
d.
16 m


Solution:

Perimeter of the triangle LMN = LM + MN + NL
[Sum of all three sides.]

LM = MN = LN = 6 m
[Since LMN is an equilateral triangle.]

Perimeter = 6 + 6 + 6 = 18
[Substitute the values and add.]

So, the perimeter of ΔLMN is 18 m.

 3.  
Find the perimeter of the triangle PQR.


a.
48 cm
b.
120 cm
c.
55 cm
d.
40 cm


Solution:

The perimeter of a triangle is the sum of all the lengths of the sides of the triangle.

From the figure, the lengths of the sides are 8 cm, 15 cm and 17 cm.

The perimeter of the triangle PQR = 8 + 15 + 17 = 40 cm


Correct answer : (4)
 4.  
Find the area of an equilateral triangle, if its perimeter and height are 30 cm and 53 cm respectively.
a.
18 cm2
b.
36 cm2
c.
503 cm2
d.
253 cm2


Solution:

The perimeter of an equilateral triangle = 3 × base of the triangle

Base of the triangle = 30 ÷ 3 = 10 cm

The area of a triangle = 12 × base × height

= 12 × 10 × 53 = 253

So, the area of the triangle is 253 cm2.


Correct answer : (4)
 5.  
What is the area of the triangle?

a.
64 cm2
b.
88 cm2
c.
84 cm2
d.
45 cm2


Solution:

Base of the triangle = 12 cm and its height = 14 cm

Area of a triangle = 1 / 2 × base × height

= 1 / 2 × 12 × 14

= 84

Area of the triangle is 84 cm2.


Correct answer : (3)
 6.  
What is the area of the triangle?


a.
40 in.2
b.
80 in.2
c.
24 in.2
d.
36 in.2


Solution:

Base of the triangle = 20 in. and its height = 8 in.

Area of a triangle = 1 / 2 × base × height

= 1 / 2 × 20 × 8

= 80

So, area of the triangle is 80 in.2.


Correct answer : (2)
 7.  
Find the area of a triangle whose base is 9 in. and height is 10 in.
a.
47 in.2
b.
45 in.2
c.
49 in.2
d.
44 in.2


Solution:

Area of a triangle = 1 / 2 × base × height

= 12 × 9 × 10
[Substitute base = 9 and height = 10.]

= 902 = 45
[Simplify.]

The area of the triangle is 45 in.2


Correct answer : (2)
 8.  
The area of a triangle is 12 in.2 and base of the triangle is 3 in. Find the height of the triangle.
a.
9 in.
b.
7 in.
c.
8 in.
d.
10 in.


Solution:

Area of triangle = 1 / 2 x base x height

12 = 12 x 3 x height
[Substitue the values of Area and Base.]

12 x 2 = 3 x height
[Multiply each side by 2.]

243 = height
[Divide each side by 3.]

8 = height

The height of the triangle is 8 in.


Correct answer : (3)
 9.  
Find the length (b) of the base of the triangle ABC in the figure, if area of the triangle ABC is 10 cm2.

a.
2 cm
b.
4 cm
c.
5 cm
d.
6 cm


Solution:

The area of the triangle ABC = 1 / 2 x BC x AD .

12 x BC x AD = 10
[Substitute the value of the area of the triangle.]

BC x AD = 20
[Multiply both sides by 2.]

BC x 4 = 20
[Substitute AD = 4 cm.]

BC = b = 5
[Divide each side by 4.]

The length of the base of the triangle ABC is 5 cm.


Correct answer : (3)
 10.  
Find the perimeter of the triangle ABC.

a.
12 cm
b.
10 cm
c.
14 cm
d.
20 cm


Solution:

The perimeter of a triangle is the sum of all the lengths of the sides of the triangle.

From the figure, the lengths of the sides are 4 cm, 5 cm and 3 cm.

The perimeter of the triangle ABC = 4 + 5 + 3 = 12 cm
[Add.]
