let length be x..so 1/2 * (6x) * h1= 1/2 * (1/2 * 14 * h2)..h1 is the height of the smaller trapezium...h2 is overall heght.
so (6+x)h1=7h2
now the line of legth x is divided into length 6 and 2 equal corner segments of legth (x-6)/2 each.
by similar triangles, h1/h2= (x-6)/2.
plug in the 1st eqn7/(6+x)=(x-6)/2
x^2 - 36 = 14
x = 5 root 2

• Q13) What is the ratio of area of a regular dodecagon (a polygon with 12 sides) to the area of a regular hexagon if both the polygons are inscribed in the same circle?

• Q15) There are 7 smaller squares inside the large rectangle. If the green square has side length 1 and the brown square has side length 2, what is the area of the rectangle?

• Q16) Let ABCDE be a regular pentagon. Construct an equilateral triangle PAB with point P inside the pentagon. Find the measure of the angle PCE.

• Q17) QR = ?

[OA: 18]

• Hint: Use Appollonius Theorem
PQ^2 + PR^2 = 2 * (x^2+279)
=>2 x^2 = 576 + 144 - 558
=>x = 9
QR = 2x = 18

• Q18) A, B and C are the vertices of a triangle of area 60 cm^2. Let AD be the median drawn from vertex A to side BC and BY be the median from vertex B to AD. If BY is extended to meet AC at E, what is the area of triangle AYE?

[OA : 5 cm^2]
