Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ452
The circle below is divided into 4 parts, A, B, C and D. Part A and part C form one semi-circle. Part B and part D form the other semi-circle. The area of part A to the area of part C is in the ratio of 1 : 3. The area of part B to the area of part D is in the ratio of 1 : 2.
(a) What percentage of the whole circle is part D?
(b) The area of part C is bigger than part B by 20 cm2. Find the area of the whole circle.
The area ratio,
B : D : (D + B) = 1: 2 : 3 = 4 : 8 : 12
A : C : (A + C) = 1 : 3 : 4 = 3 : 9 : 12
A and C form semicircle as well as B and D form semicircle
The area (A + C) = The area (D + B)
A : B : C : D : (A + C ) : (B + D) : (A + B + C + D) = 3 : 4 : 9 : 8 : 12 : 12 : 24
The percentage of whole circle is part D = 8/24 × 100% = 33.33%
The area of part c is bigger than the area of part B by 20cm2
5 units = 20
1 unit = 4 cm2
The area of the whole circle = 4 × 24 = 96cm2
