Ex.12.1 Q3 Areas Related to Circles Solution - NCERT Maths Class 10

Go back to  'Ex.12.1'


Given figure depicts an archery target marked with its five scoring areas from the centre outwards as Gold, Red, Blue, Black and White. The diameter of the region representing Gold score is \(21 \,\rm{cm}\) and each of the other bands is \(10.5 \,\rm{cm}\) wide. Find the area of each of the five scoring regions.

[Use \(\pi= \,\frac{22}{7}\)]

Text Solution

What is known?

Diameter of the gold region and width of the other regions.

What is unknown?

Area of each scoring region.


Area of the region between \(2\) concentric circles is given by \(\begin{align}\pi {\text{r}}_2^2 - \pi {\text{r}}_1^2\end{align}\).


Radius\(({r_1})\) of gold region (i.e., \(1^\rm{st}\) circle)\( = \frac{{21}}{2} = 10.5\,{\text{cm}}\)

Given that each circle is \(10.5\,\rm{cm}\) wider than the previous circle.


Radius \((r_2)\) of \(2^\rm{nd}\) circle

\[\begin{align}&= 10.5 + 10.5\\&=21 \,\rm{cm}\end{align}\]

Radius \(({r_3})\) of \(3^\rm{rd}\)circle

\[\begin{align}&= 21 + 10.5\\ &= 31.5\,{\text{cm}}\end{align}\]

Radius \((r_4)\) of \(4^\rm{th}\) circle

\[\begin{align}&= 31.5 + 10.5\\ &= 42\,{\text{cm}}\end{align}\]

Radius \((r_5)\) of \(5^\rm{th}\) circle

\[\begin{align}&= 42 + 10.5\\ &= 52.5\,\,{\text{cm}} \end{align}\]

\(\text{Area of gold region}\) \(=\) \(\text{Area of}\) \(1^\rm{st}\) \(\rm{}circle\) \(= \pi {r}_1^2 = \pi {(10.5)^2} = 346.5\;\rm{cm^2}\)

\(\text{Area of red region}\) \(=\) \(\text{Area of}\) \(2^\text{nd }\)\(\rm{}circle\)\(-\)\(\text{Area of}\)\(1^\rm{ st }\)\(\rm{}circle \)

\[\begin{align}& = \pi {\text{r}}_2^2 - \pi {\text{r}}_1^2\\& = \pi {{(21)}^2} - {{(10.5)}^2}\\& = 441\pi - 110.25\pi = 330.75\pi \\& = 1039.5\,{\text{c}}{{\text{m}}^2}\end{align}\]

\(\text{Area of blue region}\) \(=\)\(\text{Area of}\)\(3^\text{rd}\)\(\rm{}circle\)\( -\)\(\text{Area of}\)\(2^\rm{nd}\)\(\rm{}circle\)

\[\begin{align}&= \pi _{13}^2 - \pi {\text{r}}_1^2\\& = \pi {{(31.5)}^2} - \pi {{(21)}^2}\\&= 992.25\pi - 441\pi = 551.25\pi \\&= 1732.5\,{\text{c}}{{\text{m}}^2}\end{align}\]

\(\text{Area of black region}\)\(=\)\(\text{Area of}\)\(4^\rm{th}\)\(\rm{}circle\)\(-\)\(\text{Area of}\)\(3^\rm{rd}\)\(\rm{}circle\)

\[\begin{align}& = \pi r_4^2 - \pi r_3^2\\& = \pi {{(42)}^2} - \pi {{(31.5)}^2}\\&= 1764\pi - 992.25\pi \\&= 771.75\pi \\ &= 2425.5\,{\text{c}}{{\text{m}}^2}\end{align}\]

\(\text{Area of white region}\) \(=\)\(\text{Area of}\)\(5^\rm{th}\)\(\rm{}circle\)\(-\)\(\text{Area of}\)\(4^\rm{th}\)\(\rm{}circle \)

\[\begin{align}&= \pi {\text{r}}_5^2 - \pi \pi _4^2\\&= \pi {{(52.5)}^2} - \pi {{(42)}^2}\\&= 2756.25\pi - 1764\pi \\&= 992.25\pi \\ &= 3118.5\,{\text{c}}{{\text{m}}^2}\end{align}\]

Therefore,areas of gold,red,blue,black,and white regions are \(346.5\, \rm{cm^2},\;1039.5 \,\rm{cm^2},\; 1732.5 \,\rm{cm^2},\; 2425.5\,\rm{cm^2},\)and\(3118.5 \,\rm{cm^2}\) respectively.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Class 10 NCERT Exemplars?
While getting good scores in school tests is a desirable outcome, it is not a reliable indicator of how strong your child’s math foundation really is. Many students who score well in school exams in their earlier years, might struggle with math in higher grades because of a weak foundation. At Cuemath, we evaluate your child’s grasp of math fundamentals, and take corrective actions immediately. Also, your child may have limited exposure in their school, and in most cases, may not feel challenged to learn more. Cuemath's customised learning plan ensures your child is challenged with varied difficulty levels of questions at every stage.
