(B) 120
(C) 177
(D) 183

(A) 30
(B) 60
(C) 90

5. When the base of a triangle is increased by 10% and he altitude to this base is decreased by 10%,the area is
(A) Increased by 10%
(B) Decreased by 10%
(C) Increased by 1%
(D) Decreased by 1%

Answers with Explanation

1.Each angle of a regular polygon =(n- 2)180°/n= 117°
n = 120

2.Sum of two consecutive angles of a Πgm is 180o.
Hence 2x+y+x+2y = 180° x + y = 60°

3. BC = √12^2  +16^2= 400=20cm
radius of circle = 10cm (angle in a semi circle is 90o)
circumference = 2λ.10 = 20λcm

4.Diagonal of a sq with side a = a √2
a √2 = 8  a =8/√2= 4√2
Hence area =(4√ 2)^2 = 32= 2^5 = Hence K =5.

5.The new area= 1/2×1.1×base × 0.9× height = original area × 0.99. Therefore the area decreases by 1.1.
