### Solved Questions on Area Related to Circles

1. The area of a minor sector of a circle with a radius of 8 cm and a central angle of 45° is:

a) 42 cm2
b) 12 cm2
c) 85 cm2
d) 27 cm2

Answer: b) 25.12 cm²

Explanation: The formula to calculate the area of a minor sector is

A = (θ/360) x π x r2, where θ is the central angle and r is the radius of the circle. Substituting the given values, we get (45/360) x π x 82 = (1/8) x π x 64 = 8π = 25.12 cm2 (approx.).

2. The area of a major sector of a circle with a radius of 10 cm and a central angle of 300° is:

a) 131.42 cm2
b) 162.83 cm2
c) 252.36 cm2
d) 261.66 cm2

Answer: d) 261.66 cm²

Explanation: The formula to calculate the area of a major sector is A = (θ/360) x π x r2, where θ is the central angle and r is the radius of the circle. Plugging in the values, we get (300/360) x π x 102 = (5/6) x 3.14 x 100 = 261.66 cm2.

3. The length of an arc in a circle with a radius of 30 cm and a central angle of 120° is:

a) 10π cm
b) 20π cm
c) 30π cm
d) 40π cm

Answer: b) 20π cm.

Explanation: Using the same formula as above, we have

C = (120/360) x 2π x 30 = (1/3) x 2π x 30 = 20π cm.

4. What is the area of the major segment of a circle with a radius of 8 cm and a central angle of 60°?

a) 181.059 cm2
b) 184.457 cm2
c)195.112 cm2
d) 206.458 cm2

Answer: c) 195.112 cm2

Explanation: The formula to calculate the area of the major segment is (θ1/360) x π x r2 + (1/2) x r2 x sin(θ2), where θ1 is the angle of the major sector and θ2 is the central angle of the triangle and r is the radius of the circle. So, θ1 = 300°, θ2 = 60° and r = 8 cm. Plugging in the values, we get (300/360) x π x 82 + (1/2) x 82 x sin (60°) = (5/6) x π x 64 + (1/2) x 64 x (√3/2) = 195.112 cm2.

5. What is the area of a ring in a circle with an outer radius of 10 cm and an inner radius of 6 cm?

a) 12π cm2
b) 36π cm2
c) 50π cm2
d) 64π cm2

Answer: d) 64 cm²

Explanation: The formula to calculate the area of a ring is π (R2 - r2), where R is the outer radius and r is the inner radius. Plugging in the values, we get π x (102 - 62) = π x (100 - 36) = π x 64 = 64π cm2.
