Triangles

A figure enclosed by three sides is known as a triangle. A triangle has three angles with total sum of 1800 and sum of its any two sides is more than the third side.

Equilateral Triangle

It has all three sides equal.

(i) Area =

(ii) Height =

(iii) Perimeter = 3a

Where, a = side, each angle = 600

Isosceles Triangle

It has any two sides and two angles equal and altitude bisects the base.

(i) Area =

(ii) Height =

(iii) Perimeter = a + a + b = 2a + b

Where, a= each of two equal sides

           b= third side

Scalene Triangle

It has three unequal sides.

(i) Area

Where, and a, b and c are the sides of the triangle.

(iii) Perimeter = a + b + c   

Right Angled Triangle

It is a triangle with one angle is equal to 900

(i) Area

(ii) Perimeter = p + b + h

(iii) h2 = p2 + b2 (Pythagoras theorem)

where, p =  perpendicular, b = base and h = hypotenuse

Triangle with Height h

This is a triangle with three unequal sides having certain height.

(i) Area

(ii) Perimeter = a + b + c

Parallelogram


It is a quadrilateral with opposite sides parallel and equal.

(i) Area = Base × Height = b × h

(ii) Perimeter = 2(a + b)       

Trapezium

It is quadrilateral with anyone pair of opposite sides parallel.

Area (Sum of the parallel sides × Height)

Where, a and b are parallel sides and h is the height or perpendicular distance between a and b.

Rhombus

It is a parallelogram with all 4 sides equal. The opposite angle in a rhombus are equal but they are not right angle.

(i) Area

(ii) Side

(iii) Perimeter = 4a

(iv)

Where, a = side, d1 and d2 are diagonals.

Rectangle

  • It is a parallelogram with equal opposite sides and each angle is equal to 900.

(i) Area = Length × Breadth = l × b

(ii) Perimeter = 2(l + b)

(iii) Diagonal

(iv) Area of 4 walls of rectangular room

                              = 2 × (l + b × h)

Where, l = length, b = breadth, h = height

Square

It is a parallelogram with all 4 sides equal and each angle is equal to 900.

(i) Area

(ii) Perimeter = 4 × side = 4a

(iii) Diagonal

Where, a = side, d = diagonal

Regular Polygon

  • In regular polygons, all sides and all interior angles are equal. A polygon is called pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octagon, nanogon and decagon according as it contains 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 sides respectively.

If each side of a regular polygon of n sides = a

Then,

(i) Area of regular pentagon

(ii) Area of regular hexagon

(iii) Area of regular octagon

(iv) Each exterior angle

(v) Each interior angle = 1800 – Exterior angle

(vi) Number of diagonals

Circles

It is a plane figure enclosed by a line on which every point is equally distant form a fixed point (centre) inside the curve.

(i) Area = πr2

(ii) Circumference (perimeter) = 2πr

(iii) Diameter = 2r

(iv) Length of the arc

(v) Area of sector

where,          r = radius

and              

Incase of circular ring,

(i) Area

(ii) Difference in circumference of both the rings

where, R = radius of bigger ring

and      r = radius of smaller ring
