Volume of right circular cone = $\dfrac{1}{3} \pi r^2 h$
Given, h = 12 cm and Volume = $2464 cm^3$
Then, $\dfrac{1}{3} \times \dfrac{22}{7} \times r^2 \times 12 = 2464$

=> $r^2 = 196$
=> r = 14 cm
Therefore, Radius of the cone = 14 cm

External radius of the pipe = 9 cm
Internal radius of the pipe = 9-2 = 7cm
Volume of the pipe = $\pi \times (9^2 – 7^2) \times 10 = 1005.71 cm^3$
Weight of the pipe per $cm^3 = 8.5 gm$
Then, Total weight = 1005.71*8.5 = 8548 gm = 8.54 kg

Let the length and breath of the rectangle be l cm and b cm
Given, $\dfrac{2(l+b)}{b} = \dfrac{3}{1}$
=> 2(l+b) = 3b
=> 2l+2b = 3b
=> b = 2l
Given, lb = 310
Substituting b = 2l in above equation
$l\times 2l = 310$
$2l^2 = 310$
=> $l^2 = 155$
We know that $12^2 = 144$ and $13^2 = 169$.
Hence, The value of l lies in between 12 and 13.
Therefore, From the options, l = 12.45 cm

Area of a circle=$\pi*r*r$
Area of a triangle=(1/2)*b*h
h=64$\pi$*2*b/8
h=16$\pi$

Area of a equilateral triangle=$\sqrt{3}a^{2}/4$
$\sqrt{3}a^{2}/4$=$4\sqrt{3}$
a=4 cm
Total length =3*4
=12 cm
Side of each square=12/4
=3 cm
Area=9 sqcm

Let length,breath and height be 4x,3x and 2x respectively
Area of the floor=12$x^{2}$
Total cost of flooring=12$x^{2}$*10
12$x^{2}$*10=480
x=2
l=8 cm,b=6 cm and h=4 cm

Given $\pi R^{2}-\pi r^{2}$=44
$R^{2}-r^{2}$=14
R=p+2,r=p
R-r=2 R+r=2p+2
(R+r)(R-r)=14
2p+2=7
p=2.5

Area of the farm=4800
l*b=4800
given b=60 m
l*60=4800
l=80 m
In a rectangle diagonal=$\sqrt{(l^{2}+b^{2})}$
=$\sqrt{(80^{2}+60^{2})}$
=$\sqrt{(10000)}$
=100 m
So total fencing required=100+80+60=240 m
Cost of fencing each meter=Rs 10
For 240m it is 240*10=Rs 2400

Area of the wall=96 sq cm
Area of door=3*1.5=4.5 sq cm
Area of two windows=2*1.5*1.5
=4.5 cm
Therefore required area=96-(4.5+4.5)
=96-9
=87 sq cm

Circumference of the circular garden =$2\pi r$
Area=2*(22/7)*35
=220 sq mt
Cost for each each mt=Rs 16
Cost for whole garden=220*16
=Rs 3520

Area of the floor and ceiling will be same and it is equal
i.e l*b=15*12=180 sq m
Area of four walls will be 2*l*h+2*b*h=2h(l+b)
2h(l+b)=360
h(12+15)=180
h=180/27
h=20/3
Volume=l*b*h=12*15*20/3
=1200 cubic meters

Area of a circle=$\pi r^{2}$
Area of a triangle=(1/2)bh
Given both are equal
Therefore $\pi r^{2}$=(1/2)bh
$\pi 8^{2}$=(1/2)8h
h=$16\pi$

Lateral surface area of a cylinder=$2\pi r h$
Therefore 2*(22/7)*r*28=176
r=8/8
r=1 cm
Volume of a cylinder=$(\pi) r^{2}h$
=22*1*1*28/7
=88 sq cm

Given sides of the triangle are 18,80 and 82 cm
these are the sides of a right angled triangle as 9,40,41 is a Pythagorean triplet
So area of a right angled triangle=(1/2)bh
=(1/2)*80*18
=720 sq cm
Given area a equilateral triangle=$5\sqrt{3}$*720
$\sqrt{3}a^{2}/4$=$5\sqrt{3}$*720
$a^{2}$=36*100*4
a=6*10*2
a=120 cm

$\sqrt{2}a = 14 => a = \dfrac{14}{\sqrt{2}}$ where a = side of first square
Area of first square $= ( \dfrac{14}{\sqrt{2}})^2 = \dfrac{196}{2} = 98 cm^2$
Area of second square $= 2\times98 = 196 cm^2$
Side of second square $= \sqrt{196} = 14 cm$
Diagonal of second square $=14\times\sqrt{2}$ = $14\sqrt{2} cm$.
