Solution :

Area = 504
Area = 1/2 * b * h = 1/2 * 7x * 9x =1/2* 63 * X^2

==> 1/2 * 63 X^2 = 504
==>X=4

Base = 7 *4 = 28

Diagonal of square = √2 a = √2 * 28

#### Ques 8.

#### Ques 10.

What sum of money will amount to Rs.6899.20 at 12% per annum in two years, interest being compounded annually ?

Solution :

For two years formula 2 (A)+1(B) = Compound Interest(C.I)

A = rate = 12
B= 12% of 12= 1.44

C.I = 2(12)+1(1.44)=25.44

Assume P = 100

Now Total Amount give = 6899.20

Total Amount = 100 +25.44=125.44

125.44% ----- 6899.2

100%  ---------- X

P = 5500
