Q.8 Pragya wrapped a card around a circular pipe of radius 4 cm and cut off the length required of the cord. Then she wrapped it around a square box of side 4 cm (also shown). Did she have any cord left? (\(\pi \)= 3.14)


Answer :

Length of the cord = Circumference of the circular pipe
= 2\(\pi \)r = 2 × 3.14 × 4 = 25.12 cm
Perimeter of the square box
= 4 × side = 4 × 4 cm = 16 cm
Length of the cord left
= 25.12 cm – 16 cm = 9.12 cm
Yes, 9.12 cm cord is left.
