**Question 1. In the adjoining figure, A is the centre of the circle. ∠ABC = 45° and AC = 7√2 cm. Find the area of segment BXC, (π = 3.14)**

Solution:

Solution:

In ∆ABC,

AC = AB … [Radii of same circle]

∴ ∠ABC = ∠ACB …[Isosceles triangle theorem]

∴ ∠ABC = ∠ACB = 45°

In ∆ABC,

∠ABC + ∠ACB + ∠BAC = 180° … [Sum of the measures of angles of a triangle is 180° ]

∴ 45° + 45° + ∠BAC = 180°

∴ 90° + ∠BAC = 180°

∴ ∠BAC = 90°

Let ∠BAC = θ = 90°

∴ The area of segment BXC is 27.93 cm^{2}.

**Question 2. In the adjoining figure, O is the centre of the circle.m(arc PQR) = 60°, OP = 10 cm. Find the area of the shaded region.(π = 3.14, √3 = 1.73)Given: m(arc PQR) = 60°, radius (r) = OP = 10 cmTo find: Area of shaded region.Solution:**

∠POR = m (arc PQR) …[Measure of central angle]

∴ ∠POR = θ = 60°

∴ The area of the shaded region is 9.08 cm

^{2}.

**Question 3. In the adjoining figure, if A is the centre of the circle, ∠PAR = 30°, AP = 7.5, find the area of the segment PQR. (π = 3.14)Given: Central angle (θ) = ∠PAR = 30°,radius (r) = AP = 7.5To find: Area of segment PQR.Solution:**

Let ∠PAR = θ = 30°

∴ The area of segment PQR is 0.65625 sq. units.

**Question 4. In the adjoining figure, if O is the centre of the circle, PQ is a chord, ∠POQ = 90°, area of shaded region is 114 cm2, find the radius of the circle, (π = 3.14)Given: Central angle (θ) = ∠POQ= 90°,A (segment PRQ) = 114 cm**

^{2}To find: Radius (r).Solution:

…[Taking square root of both sides]

∴ r = 20 cm

∴ The radius of the circle is 20 cm.

**Question 5. A chord PQ of a circle with radius 15 cm subtends an angle of 60° with the centre of the circle. Find the area of the minor as well as the major segment. (π = 3.14, √3 = 1.73)Given: Radius (r) =15 cm, central angle (θ) = 60°To find: Areas of major and minor segments.Solution:**Let chord PQ subtend ∠POQ = 60° at centre.

∴ θ = 60°

= 225 [0.0908]

= 20.43 cm

^{2}

∴ area of minor segment = 20.43 cm

^{2}

Area of circle = πr

^{2}

= 3.14 × 15 × 15

= 3.14 × 225

= 706.5 cm

^{2}

Area of major segment

= Area of circle – area of minor segment

= 706.5 – 20.43

= 686.07 cm

^{2}

Area of major segment 686.07 cm

^{2}

∴ The area of minor segment Is 20.43 cm

^{2}and the area of major segment is 686.07 cm

^{2}.
