Q. |
Four equal sized maximum circular plates are cut off from a square paper sheet of area \(784\) cm\(^2\). The circumference of each plate is: |

✖ A. |
22 cm |

✔ B. |
44 cm |

✖ C. |
66 cm |

✖ D. |
88 cm |

**Solution:**

Option(**B**) is correct

Consider the diagram given below:

Side of square paper

\(=\sqrt{784}\) cm \(=28\) cm

Radius of each circular plate

\(=\dfrac{1}{4}\times 28\)cm \(=7\) cm

Circuference of each circular plate

\(=2\times \dfrac{22}{7}\times 7\)

\(=44\) cm

Sir, I have a confusion.

How 28 is divided by 4?

28 is just a side value.

Then how only one side can be divided for four square?

Because if you visualize, then side of the square will contain 2 circles (or 4 radius).

So in order to get the radius, it is divided by 4.

Also, added an image.

from where the value of 2*22/7 you get it?
