Sample of Math Homework Illustrations and Solutions:


Question 1: The side of a square exceeds the side of the another square by 4 cm and the
sum of the areas of the two squares is 400 sq. cm. Find the dimensions of the squares.
Solution. Set 1 and 2 be two squares. Let the side of the square 2 be x cm in length.
Then, the side of square S1 is (x + 4) cm.
Area of square 1 = + 4

And, Area of square 2 = 2


It is given that
Area of square 1 + Area of square 2 = 400 cm2
= +4
0

+ 2 = 400 = ( 2 + 8x + 16) + x = 400 = 2 2 + 8x 384 = 0 = 2 + 4x 192 =

= 2 + 16x 12x 192 = 0 =x(x + 16) -12 (x + 16) = 0 = (x + 16) (x 12) = 0 x = 12 or


x = -16
Since the length of the side of a square cannot be negative: x = 12
Side the length of the side of a square cannot be negative: x = 12
Side of square 1 = x + 4 = 12 + 4 = 16 cm and Side of square 2 = 12 cm.

Question 2:
There is square field whose side is 44 m. A square flower bed is prepared in its centre
leaving gravel path all round the flower bed and gravelling the path at $ 2.75 and $ 1.50
per square meter respectively is $ 4904. Find the width of the gravel path.
Solution.
Let the width of the gravel path be x meters. Then, Each side of the square
flower bed is (44 2x) meters.
Now area of the square field = 44 44 = 1936 m2
Area of the flower bed = (44 - 2)2 m2
Area of the gravel path
= Area of the field Area of the flower bed
= 1936 (44 - 2)2
= 1936 (1936 176x + 4 2 ) m2
Cost of laying the flower bed
= (Area of the flower bed) (Rate per sq. m)
= (44 - 2)2

(44 - 2)2 = 11 ( 22 )2

Cost of gravelling the path = (Area of the path) (Rate per sq. m) = (176x - 4 2 )
6(44x - 2 )

It is given that the total cost of laying the flower bed and gravelling the path is $ 4904.
11 (22 )2 + 6 (44x - 2 ) = 4904 = 11(484 44x + 2 ) + (364x - 6 2 ) = 4904.
= 5 2 - 220x + 5324 = 4908 = 5 2 220x + 420 = 0 = 2 -44x + 84 = 0
= x2 42x 2x + 84 = 0 = x(x 42) -2(x 42) = 0
= (x -2) (x 42) = 0 = x = 2 or x = 42.
But, x 42, as the side of the square is 44m. Therefore, x = 2.
Hence, the width of the gravel path is 2 meters.

Question 3:
A chess board contains 64 equal squares and the area of each square is 6.25 cm2 . A border
round the board is 2 cm wide. Find the length of the side of the chess board.
Solution.
4 2

Let length of the side of the chess board be x cm. Then Area of 64 squares =

= 64 6.25 = 2 - 8x + 16 = 400

= 2 8x 384 = 0 = 2 - 24x + 16x 384 = 0


= (x 24) (x + 16) = 0 = x = 24 cm

Question 4:
A swimming pool is filled with three pipes with uniforms flow. The first tow pipes operating
simultaneously, fill the pool in the same time during which the pool is filled by the third pipe
alone. The second pipe fills the pool five hours faster than the first pipe and four hours
slower than the third pipe. Find the time required by each pipe to fill the pool separately.
Solution.
Let v be the volume of the pool and x the number of hours required by the
second pipe alone to fill the pool. Then, first pipe takes (x + 5) hours, while the third pipe
takes (x -4) hours to fill the pool. So, the parts of the pool filled by the first, second and
third pipes in one hour are respectively

Let the time taken by the first and second pipes fill the pool simultaneously be 6 hours.
Then, the third pipe also takes the same time to fill the pool.

= (2x + 5) (x 4) = 2 + 5x = 2 - 8x- 20 = 0
= 2 - 10x + 2x 20 = 0 = (x 10) (x + 2) = 0 = 10 or x = -2
But, x cannot be negative, So, x = 10.
Hence, the timings required by first, second and third pipes to fill the pool individually are
15 hours, 10 hours respectively.
