**Free Response Questions**

**Q.8In a circular agricultural field, a sector subtending an angle of 120° at the centre is dedicated to growing sugarcane. **

**If the radius of the circular field is 30 meters, what is the area of the land used for growing sugarcane? Show your work. **

**(Note: Take π as 3.14.)**

**Answer.**Finds the area of the sector used for growing sugarcane as:

**Q.9Anjali got the following question in her class test. **

**"A 13 cm chord of a circle subtends an angle of 60° at the centre. Find the area of the minor segment." **

**After the test, she went to the teacher and said, "The question cannot be answered as it doesn't mention the radius of the circle". **

**Is Anjali right or wrong? Give a valid reason for your answer.**

**Answer.**Writes that Anjali is wrong and gives a reason. For example, since the chord extends an angle of 60° at the centre, it forms an equilateral triangle with the radii and hence, the radius is 13 cm.

**Q10Shown below is a circle with centre O. The area of the shaded region is 294π cm ^{2} .**

**Answer.**

area of the circle as:

294π × 6 = 1764π cm^{2}

(Award full marks if radius is calculated first and then the area of the circle.)

**Q.11Find the length of an arc which subtends an angle of 80° at the centre of a circle with radius 63 cm. Show your work.**

**Answer.**

**Q.12The length of an arc of a circle is 22 cm and its radius is 21 cm. **

**What is the area of the sector formed by the arc? Show your work.**

**Answer.**Assumes the angle of the sector as θ and writes the equation as:

**Case Study**

**Answer the questions based on the given information. An archery target board consists of three concentric circles with centre O as shown below. The innermost circle has a radius of 7 cm, the middle circle has a radius of 14 cm, and the outer circle has a radius of 28 cm. The target board is divided into four equal parts by AC and BD, which are the diameters of the outermost circles. The scoring system for the game is as follows:Area LIO: 10 pointsArea KJIEFG: 7points Area ABEH: 4 points**

Q.13Find the area of the sector in which 10 points can be scored. Show your work.

**Answer.**Uses the expression for the area of a sector to find the area of the part LIO as:

**Q.14If the target lands on the boundary of the 4 points scoring area, a deduction of 1 point occurs, resulting in a score of 3 points. Find the length of the boundary in which 3 points can be scored. Show your work.**

**Answer.**Finds the length of arc of middle circle as:

Finds the length of arc of outer circle as:

Finds the length of boundary in which 3 points can be scored as:

44 + 22 + 2(28 - 14) = 94 cm

**Q.15Find the area KJIEFG. Show your work.**

**Answer.**Finds the area of the semicircle in the middle region as:
