Since the area of the square ABCF is 25, the side of the square is 5.

Since the triangle GCD is an isosceles right triangle, the sides are in the ratio \(1:1:\sqrt{2}\)
We are given that the hypotenuse of the triangle is \(3\sqrt{2}\), the other sides are equal to 3.

In rectangle GFDE, GF = 5 - 3 = 2. Also, GD = 3.

Therefore, the area of the rectangle GFDE is 6(Option E)

10 second question.

Straight "E".

Isosceles right triangle has sides in the ratio 1(short):1(shhort):root2(hypo)
In the figure hypot=3*root2
So short side = 3
Now for rectabgle:
l=3 b=2
Area=6

Since triangle CGD is an isosceles right triangle (i.e., 45-45-90), both sides CG and GD = 3√2/√2 = 3. Since the area of square ABCF is 25, side CF = √25 = 5. Thus side GF is 5 - 3 = 2.

Finally, the area of rectangle DEFG is GF x GD = 2 x 3 = 6.

Answer: E

Solution



Image

    •Area of square \(ABCF= 25\)

Let us assume the length of the sides of the square is ‘\(a\)’, then:

    •\(a^2=25\)
    •\(a=5\) (Distance cannot be negative so \(a\) cannot be \(-5\))

    •Triangle \(GCD\) is an isosceles right-angled triangle.
    •GCD is \(45- 45- 90\) triangle.
      •\(GC:GD: DC\)= \(1:1:\sqrt{2}\)
    GC= GD= \(3\)


    •Since \(GD=FE\), hence \(FE=3\).
    •Since \(CF= AB=CG + GF\) = \(5\), hence GF=\(2\).

    Area of rectangle \(DEFG= FE*GF\)
    = \(3*2=6\)

Answer: E
