Standard Units of Area

The inter relationship among various units of measurement of area are listed below.


\[1\,{{m}^{2}}\]                      =         \[(100\times 100)\,c{{m}^{2}}={{10}^{4}}\,c{{m}^{2}}\]

\[1\,{{m}^{2}}\]                      =         \[(10\times 10)\,d{{m}^{2}}=100\,d{{m}^{2}}\]

\[1\,d{{m}^{2}}\]        =         \[(10\times 10)\,c{{m}^{2}}=100\,c{{m}^{2}}\]

\[1\,da{{m}^{2}}\]       =         \[(10\times 10)\,{{m}^{2}}=100\,{{m}^{2}}\]

\[1\,h{{m}^{2}}\]                    =         \[(100\times 100)\,{{m}^{2}}={{10}^{4}}{{m}^{2}}\]

\[1\,k{{m}^{2}}\]                     =         \[(1000\times 1000)\,{{m}^{2}}={{10}^{6}}\,{{m}^{2}}\]

\[1\,hectare\]      =         \[10000\,{{m}^{2}}\]

\[1\,k{{m}^{2}}\]                     =         \[100\,hectare\]

  • Perimetre of a rectangle \[=2(Length+breadth)\]
  • Area of a rectangle \[=Length\times breadth\]
  • Diagonal of a rectangle \[=\sqrt{{{(length)}^{2}}+{{(breadth)}^{2}}}\]
  • Perimetre of a square \[=4\times side\]

  • Side of a square \[=\sqrt{area}\]
  • Diagonal of a square \[=side\times \sqrt{2}\]
  • Perimetre of a parallelogram \[=2\times sum\,of\,length\,of\,adjacent\,sides.\]
  • Area of a parallelogram \[=base\times corresponding\,height.\]

Find the area of a right-angled triangle whose sides are 15 cm, 9 cm and 2 cm.

(a) \[48\,c{{m}^{2}}\]              (b) \[80\,c{{m}^{2}}\]

(c)\[54\,c{{m}^{2}}\]               (d) \[78\,c{{m}^{2}}\]

(e) None of these

Answer (c)


Explanation: Here, a = 15 cm, b = 9 cm and c = 12 cm

Also, \[{{a}^{2}}={{b}^{2}}+{{c}^{2}}\Rightarrow \]The given triangle is a right triangle.

\[\therefore \]Area of the right triangle \[=\frac{1}{2}\times 9\times 12=54\,c{{m}^{2}}\]


The dimensions of the floor of a room are 15 m and 20 m. How many square tiles each of length 20 cm are required to furnish the floor?

(a) 2,400                       (b) 5,200        

(c) 7,500                        (d) 5,250

(e) None of these

Answer (c)


Explanation: Area of the room \[=15\,m\times 20\,m\]

\[=1500\,cm\times 2000\,cm=3\times {{10}^{6}}\,c{{m}^{2}}\]

Area of a tile \[=20\,cm\times 20\,cm=400\,c{{m}^{2}}\]

Total number of tiles required \[=\frac{3\times {{10}^{6}}}{400}=\frac{30000}{4}=7,500\]
