Exercise 2.2

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

(i) d1 = 8 cm, d2 = 16 cm

Area of the rhombus = 1/2 [ d1 × d2 ] sq.units

= 1/2 × 8 × 16 sq.cm

= 64 sq.cm

(ii)

Base b = 15 cm

height h = 11 cm

Area of the rhombus = b ×  h sq. units

= 15 × 11 sq.cm

= 165 sq.cm

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

Base b = 14 cm

height h = 9 cm

Area of the rhombus = b × h sq.units

= 14 × 9 sq.cm

= 126 sq.cm

3. Find the missing value.

(i) 1/2 × 19 × 16 = 152 sq.cm

(ii) 1/2 × 26 × d2 = 468 sq m.

d2 = 468 /13 = 36 m

(iii) 1/2 × d1 × 12 = 180 sq.mm

d1 = 18/6 = 30 mm

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.

The area of the rhombus = 100 sq.cm

The length of one diagonal d1 = 8 cm

The length of other diagonal = d2

Area of the rhombus = 1/2 × d1 × d2 = 100

= 1/2 × 8 × d2 = 100

d2 = 100/4 = 25 cm

The length of the other diagonal = 25 cm

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.

d1 = 4 cm

d2 = 5 cm

Area of the rhombus = 1/2 × d1 × d2 sq.units

Area of the rhombus = 1/2 × 4 × 5 = 10 sq.cm

Area of 1 sweet = 10 sq.cm

Area of 400 sweets = 10 × 400 = 4000 sq.cm

Cost of 100 sq.cm aluminum foil = ₹ 7

Cost of 4000 sq.cm aluminum foil = ₹ 7 × 4000 / 100

= ₹ 280

The cost of a aluminum foil used for 400 sweets = ₹ 280
