__Area of plane surfaces - Important Formulas, shortcuts and Tricks__:

**1. Rectangle:**

A rectangle is any quadrilateral with four right angles. It can also be defined as an equiangular quadrilateral, since equiangular means that all of its angles are equal (360°/4 = 90°). It can also be defined as a parallelogram containing a right angle.

(A) Area of a rectangle = (Length × Breadth)

∴Length = (Area/Breadth) and Breadth = (Area/Length).

(B) Perimeter of a rectangle = 2(Length + Breadth)

(C) Diagonal of a rectangle = √(Length² + Breadth²) = √(

*l² + b²)*
(D) Area of 4 walls of a room = 2 (Length + Breadth) × Height

**2. Square:**

A square is any quadrilateral with four right angles and all of its sides are of equal length.

(A) Diagonal of a square = √2 × a

(B) Area of a square = (side)² = ½ (diagonal)²

(C) Perimeter of a square = 4a, where a is each side

**2. Triangle:**

A triangle is a polygon with three edges and three vertices. It is one of the basic shapes in geometry. A triangle with vertices A, B, and C is denoted by Î”ABC

(A) Area of a triangle = ½ × Base × Height

Where a, b, c are the sides of triangle and s = ½ (a + b + c)

(C) Area of an equilateral triangle = √3/4

*× (side)²*
(D) Height of a equilateral triangle = √3/2

*× a*
(E) Radius of incircle of an equilateral triangle of side a = a/2√3

(F) Radius of circumcircle of an equilateral triangle of side a = a/√3

(G) Radius of in-circle of a triangle of area Î” and semi-perimeter s = Î”/s

**3. Parallelogram:**

A parallelogram is a (non self-intersecting) quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides. The opposite or facing sides of a parallelogram are of equal length and the opposite angles of a parallelogram are of equal measure.

(A) Area of Parallelogram = (Base × Height)

(B) Perimeter of Parallelogram = 2 × (sum of adjacent sides)

**4. Rhombus:**

If all the sides of a Parallelogram are equal, it is called a rhombus. The diagonals of rhombus bisect each other at right angles.

If d₁ and d₂ are the diagonals of a rhombus, then

(A) Side of rhombus = ½ × √(d₁² + d₂²)

(B) Area of rhombus = ½ × (product of diagonals) = ½ × d₁d₂

(C) Perimeter of rhombus = 2 × √(d₁² + d₂²)

**4. Trapezium:**

A trapezium is a quadrilateral that has only one pair of parallel sides.

(A) Area of a trapezium = ½ × (sum of parallel sides) × distance between them.

**5. Circle:**

A circle is the locus of a point which moves in a plane in such a way that its distance from a fixed point always remains same. The fixed point is called the centre and the constant distance is known as the radius of the circle. If r = radius, then,

(A) Area of a circle =

*Ï€r²,*where, r is the radius.
(B) Circumference of a circle = 2

*Ï€*r
(C) Length of an arc = 2Ï€rÎ¸/360, where Î¸ is the central angle.

(D) Area of a sector = ½(arc × r) = Ï€r²Î¸/360

(E) Circumference of a semicircle = Ï€r

(F) Area of a semicircle = Ï€r²/2

(G) Area of a quadrant circle = Ï€r²/4

(H) If two circles touch internally/externally, then the distance between their centres is equal to difference/sum

(I) Distance moved by a rotating wheel in one revolution is equal to the circumference of the wheel.

(J) The number of revolutions completed by rotating a wheel in one minute = Distance moved in one minute/ Circumference

**Notes:-**

**(I) Results on Triangles:**

- Sum of the angles of a triangle is 180 degrees.
- Sum of any two sides of a triangle is greater than the third side.
**Pythagoras theorem:**In a right angle triangle, (Hypotenuse)² = (base)² + (Height)²- The line joining the midpoint of a side of a triangle to the opposite vertex is called the
**Median**. - The point where the three medians of a triangle meet is called
**Centroid**. Centroid divides each of the medians in the ratio 2:1. - In an isosceles triangle, the altitude from the vertex bi-sects the base
- The median of a triangle divides it into two triangles of the same area.
- Area of a triangle formed by joining the midpoints of the sides of a given triangle is one-fourth of the area of the given triangle.

**II. Results on Quadrilaterals:**

- The diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other.
- Each diagonal of a parallelogram divides it into two triangles of the same area
- The diagonals of a rectangle are equal and bisect each other.
- The diagonals of a square are equal and bisect each other at right angles.
- The diagonals of a rhombus are unequal and bisect each other at right angles.
- A parallelogram and a rectangle on the same base and between the same parallels are equal in area.
- Of all the parallelograms of a given sides, the parallelogram which is a rectangle has the greatest area.

__Example: 01__**How many bricks of 20 cm × 10 cm will be required to pave the floor of a hall which is 24 m long and 16 m wide?**

__Solution:__
Let, No. of
bricks required be n

∴n = (2400 cm ×
1600 cm)/ (20 cm × 10 cm) = 19200

∴ No. of bricks required is 19200.

__Example: 02__**A rectangular lawn is 80 meters long and 60 meters wide. The time taken by a man to along its diagonal at the speed of 18 km/hour is.**

__Solution:__
Diagonal, d
= √(80² + 60²) = √10000 = 100

Speed, v =
18 km/hr = 18 × (5/18) = 5 m/sec.

∴ Time taken by the man is, t = d/v = 100/5 = 20 sec.
