**Exercise 2.1**

**1. Find the area and
perimeter of the following parallelograms:**

Given base *b* = 11 *cm*

Height *h* = 3 *cm*

Area of the Parallelogram =*
b × h sq.units*

= 11 × 3 = 33 *sq.cm*

Perimeter of the Parallelogram = Sum of the length of the four
sides

= (11+ 4+11+ 4) *cm*

** = 30 cm**

Given base *b* = 7 *cm*

Height* h* = 10* cm*

Area of the Parallelogram = *b
× h sq.units*

= 7 *×*
10 = 70 *sq.cm*

Perimeter of the Parallelogram = Sum of the length of the four
sides

= (13 + 7+ 13 + 7) *cm*

** = 40 cm**

**2.
Find the missing values.**

**Answer: **

**3.
Suresh won a parallelogram-shaped trophy
in a state level Chess tournament. He knows that the area of the trophy is 735 ***sq.
cm*** and its base is 21 ***cm***. What is the
height of that trophy?**

**Answer: **

Area of the parallelogram Trophy = 735 *sq.cm*

base *b* = 21 *cm*

We know that,

Area of the parallelogram = *b
× h* = 735 *sq.cm*

21 × *h* = 735

* h* = 735 / 21= 35 cm

**The height of that
trophy = 35 cm**

**4. Janaki has a piece of fabric in the shape of
a parallelogram. Its height is 12 ***m*** and its base is 18 ***m.*** She cuts the
fabric into four equal parallelograms by cutting the parallel sides through its
mid-points. Find the area of each new parallelogram.**

Height of the parallelogram *h*
= 12 *m*

base *b*
= 18 *m*

Area of the parallelogram = *b*
× * h sq.inits*

= 18 × 12 *sq.m*

= 216 *sq.
m*

Area of 4 parallelogram = 216 *sq. m*

Area of 1 parallelogram = 216 ÷ 4 *sq. m* = 54 *sq. m*

**Area of each new
parallelogram = 54 sq.m**

** **

**5.
A ground is in the shape of parallelogram. The height of the parallelogram is
14 metres and the corresponding base is 8 metres longer than its height. Find
the cost of eveling the ground at the rate of ****₹**** 15 per ***sq. m***.**

Height of the parallelogram *h*
= 14 *m*

base *b*
= 8*m* longer than its height

= (8+ 14) *m*
= 22 *m*

Area of the parallelogram = *b
* × *h sq. units*

= 22 × 14 *sq.
m*

= 308 *sq.
m*

Cost of levelling 1 sq.m = ₹ 15

Cost of levelling 308
sq.m = ₹ 308 × 15

= ₹ 4620

**Cost of levelling
the ground = ₹ 4620**
