+ (area of semicircle PTS)-(Area of semicircle QES)

Question 60

The inside perimeter of a running track shown in the figure is 400 m. The length of each of the straight portions is 90m, and the ends are semicircles. If the track is 14 m wide everywhere, find the area of the track. Also, find the length of the outer boundary of the track.

Solution 60

Length of the inner curved portion

= (400 - 2 90) m

= 220 m

Let the radius of each inner curved part be r

Inner radius = 35 m, outer radius = (35 + 14) = 49 m

Area of the track = (area of 2 rectangles each 90 m 14 m)

+ (area of circular ring with R = 49 m, r = 35 m

Length of outer boundary of the track
