Question 1.
Shabana scored 736 marks out of 800 in her exams. What was the percentage she scored?
Solution:
Total marks of the examination = 800
Marks scored by Shabana = 736
Suppose Shabana scored A% marks.

∴ A = 92%
∴ Shabana scored 92% marks.

Question 2.
There are 500 students in the school in Dahihanda village. If 350 of them can swim, what percent of them can swim and what percent cannot?
Solution:
Total number of students in the school = 500
Number of students who can swim = 350
Suppose A% students can swim.

∴ A = 70%
Percentage of students who cannot swim = 100% – Percentage of students who can swim .
= 100% – 70% = 30%
∴ 70% of the students can swim and 30% cannot swim.

Question 3.
If Prakash sowed jowar on 75% of the 19500 sq. m. of his land, on how many sq. m. did he actually plant jowar?
Solution:
Total area of the land = 19500 sq. m.
Percentage of area in which Prakash sowed jowar = 75%
Suppose Prakash planted jowar in A sq. m.

∴ A = 14,625 sq. m.
∴ Prakash planted jowar in 14,625 sq.m.

Question 4.
Soham received 40 messages on his birthday. Of these, 90% were birthday greetings. How many other messages did he get besides the greetings?
Solution:
Total messages received by Soham on his birthday = 40
Percentage of messages received for birthday greetings = 90%
Suppose Soham got A number of birthday greetings.

∴ A = 36
∴ Number of messages received other than birthday greetings
= total messages received – total number of birthday greetings
= 40 – 36 = 4
∴ The number of messages received other than birthday greetings is 4.

Question 5.
Of the 5675 people in a village 5448 are literate. What is the percentage of literacy in the village?
Solution:
Number of people in the village = 5675
Number of people who are literate = 5448
Suppose the percentage of literacy in the village is A%.

∴ A = 96%
∴ The percentage of literacy in the village is 96%.

In the elections, 1080 of the 1200 women in Jambhulgaon cast their vote, while 1360 of the 1700 in Wadgaon cast theirs. In which village did a greater proportion of women cast their votes?
Solution:
Total number of women in Jambhulgaon = 1200
Number of women in Jambhulgaon who voted = 1080
Suppose A% women cast their vote in Jambhulgaon village.

∴ A = 90%
In Jambhulgaon, the percentage of women who voted in the elections was 90%.
Total number of women in Wadgaon = 1700 Number of women in Wadgaon who voted = 1360
Suppose B% women cast their vote in Wadgaon.

∴ B = 80%
∴ In Wadgaon, the percentage of women who voted in the elections was 80%.
∴ A greater proportion of women cast their votes in Jambhulgaon.

Question 1.
In the above construction, why must the distance in the compass be kept constant? (Textbook pg. no. 90)
Solution:
The point N is at equal distance from points P and Q.
If we change the distance of the compass while drawing arcs from points P and Q, we will not get a point which is at equal distance from P and Q. Hence, the distance in the compass must be kept constant.

Question 2.
The Perpendicular Bisector. (Textbook pg. no. 90)

1. A wooden ‘yoke’ is used for pulling a bullock cart. How is the position of the yoke determined?
2. To do that, a rope is used to measure equal distances from the spine/midline of the bullock cart. Which geometrical property is used here?
3. Find out from the craftsmen or from other experienced persons, why this is done.

Solution:

1. For the bullock cart to be pulled in the correct direction by the yoke, its Centre O should be equidistant from the either sides of the cart.
2. The property of perpendicular bisector is used to make the point equidistant from both the ends
3. A rope is used just like a compass to get equal distances from the spine/midline of bullock cart.

Question 3.
Take a rectangular sheet of paper. Fold the paper so that the lower edge of the paper falls on its top edge, and fold it over again from right to left. Observe the two folds that have formed on the . paper. Verify that each fold is a perpendicular bisector of the other. Then measure the following distances. (Textbook pg. no. 91)
i. l(XP)
ii. l(XA)
iii. l(XB)
iv. l(YP)
v. l(YA)

You will observe that l(XP) = l(YP), l(XA) = l(YA) and l(XB) = l(YB)
Therefore we can conclude that all points on the vertical fold (perpendicular bisector) are equidistant from the endpoints of the horizontal fold.

Question 5.
Draw any polygon and divide it into triangular parts as shown here. Thus work out the sum of the measures of the angles of the polygon.

Solution:

Hexagon ABCDEF can be divided in 4 triangles namely ∆BAF, ∆BFE, ∆BED and ∆BCD
Sum of the measures of the angles of a triangle = 180°
∴ Sum of measures of the angles of the polygon ABCDEF = Sum of the measures of all the four triangles
= 180° + 180° + 180°+ 180°
= 720°
∴ The sum of the measures of the angles of the given polygon (hexagon) is 720°.

#### Maharashtra Board Class 6 Maths Chapter 17 Geometrical Constructions Practice Set 39 Questions and Activities

Question 1.
When constructing a building, what is the method used to make sure that a wall is exactly upright? What does the mason in the picture have in his hand? What do you think is his purpose for using it? (Textbook pg. no. 87)

Solution:
When constructing a building, a weight (usually with a pointed tip at the bottom) suspended from a string called as plummet or plump bob is aligned from the top of the wall to make sure that the wall is built exactly upright.
The mason in the picture is holding a plumb bob.
The string of the plumb bob is suspended from the top of the wall, such that plumb bob hangs freely. By observing whether the vertical wall is parallel to the string we can check if the constructed wall is vertical.

Question 2.
Have you looked at lamp posts on the roadside? How do they stand? (Textbook pg. no. 87)
Solution:
The lamp posts on the road side are standing erect or vertical.

Question 3.
For the above explained construction, why must we take a distance greater than half of the length of AB? What will happen if we take a smaller distance? (Textbook pg. no. 88)
Solution:
For the above construction, in step-3 we take distance greater than half of the length of AB, so that the arcs drawn by keeping the compass on points A and B intersect each other at point Q.
If the distance in compass is less than half of the length of AB, then the arcs drawn by keeping the compass at A and B will not intersect each other.
