*FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS*

*Results on Triangles:*- Sum of the angles of a triangle is 180°.
- The sum of any two sides of a triangle is greater than the third side.
*Pythagoras Theorem:*In a right-angled triangle, (Hypotenuse)^{2}= (Base)^{2}+ (Height)^{2}.- The line joining the mid-point of a side of a triangle to the positive vertex is called the
*median*. - The point where the three medians of a triangle meet, is called
*centroid.*The centroid divided each of the medians in the ratio 2 : 1. - In an isosceles triangle, the altitude from the vertex bisects the base.
- The median of a triangle divides it into two triangles of the same area.
- The area of the triangle formed by joining the mid-points of the sides of a given triangle is one-fourth of the area of the given triangle.

*Results on Quadrilaterals:*- The diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other.
- Each diagonal of a parallelogram divides it into triangles of the same area.
- The diagonals of a rectangle are equal and bisect each other.
- The diagonals of a square are equal and bisect each other at right angles.
- The diagonals of a rhombus are unequal and bisect each other at right angles.
- A parallelogram and a rectangle on the same base and between the same parallels are equal in area.
- Of all the parallelogram of given sides, the parallelogram which is a rectangle has the greatest area.

*IMPORTANT FORMULAE*

- 1. Area of a rectangle = (Length x Breadth).

Length = Area and Breadth = Area . Breadth Length 2. Perimeter of a rectangle = 2(Length + Breadth).

- Area of a square = (side)
^{2}= (diagonal)^{2}. - Area of 4 walls of a room = 2 (Length + Breadth) x Height.
- 1. Area of a triangle = x Base x Height.2. Area of a triangle =
*s*(*s*–*a*)(*s*–*b*)(*s*–*c*)

where*a*,*b*,*c*are the sides of the triangle and*s*= (*a*+*b*+*c*).3. Area of an equilateral triangle = 3 x (side) ^{2.}4 4. Radius of incircle of an equilateral triangle of side *a*=*a*. 23 5. Radius of circumcircle of an equilateral triangle of side *a*=*a*. 3 6. Radius of incircle of a triangle of area and semi-perimeter *r*=. *s* - 1. Area of parallelogram = (Base x Height).2. Area of a rhombus = x (Product of diagonals).3. Area of a trapezium = x (sum of parallel sides) x distance between them.
- 1. Area of a circle = R
^{2}, where R is the radius.2. Circumference of a circle = 2R.

3. Length of an arc = 2R , where is the central angle. 360 4. Area of a sector = 1 (arc x R) = R ^{2}. 2 360 - 1. Circumference of a semi-circle = R.

2. Area of semi-circle = R ^{2}. 2 ### Area – General Questions
