50. Draw a graph for the radius and circumference of a circle using a suitable scale. (Hint: Take radius = 7, 14, 21 units and so on) From the graph,

a) Find the circumference of the circle when radius is 42 units.

b) What radius will the circumference of the circle be 220 units?

Ans: 

We know that, the value of $\text{ }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ =}\frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}}$and circumference of a circle = $\text{2 }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ r}$

Let, the radius = 7 units

So, the circumference = $\text{2 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ }\frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}}\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 7}$ = 44 units.

Let, the radius = 14 units

So, the circumference = $\text{2 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ }\frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}}\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 14}$ = 88 units.

Let, the radius = 21 units

So, the circumference = \[\text{2 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ }\frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}}\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 21}\] = 132 units.

Let, the radius = 28 units

So, the circumference = \[\text{2 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ }\frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}}\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 28}\]= 176 units.

Let, the radius = 35 units

So, the circumference = \[\text{2 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ }\frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}}\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 35}\] = 220 units.

Let, the radius = 42 units

So, the circumference = \[\text{2 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ }\frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}}\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 42}\] = 264 units.

According to the above data the complete table and graph is shown below:

seo images

a) When does Sneha make the least progress? Explain your reasoning. 

b) Find her average speed in km/hour. 

Ans:

As per question, 

a) Least progress = 25 to 40 min. 

According to the graph, sneha travels 

0.5 km in 10 minutes, 

0.25 km in 5 minutes, till 25 minutes.

72. Ajita starts off from home at 07.00 hours with her father on a scooter that goes at a uniform speed of 30 km/h and drops her at her school after half an hour. She stays in the school till 13.30 hours and takes an auto rickshaw to return home. The rickshaw has a uniform speed of 10 km/h. Draw the graph for the above situation and also determine the distance of Ajita’s school from her house. 

Ans:

As per question,

seo images

Given, speed (scooter) of ajita’s father = 30 km/hr 

To drop ajita to her school, the taken time = 30 minutes 

So, the distance between ajita’s home and her school 

= 30 × (1/2) = 15 km 

We know that distance = speed × time 

So, in 1-minute, total covered distance = 15 ÷ 30 

= 0.5 km = 500m

1. How many types of graphs there are in Class 8 Math and explain them?

There are many ways to represent data in a graphical manner, which are used according to the situation and type of data provided. Some of which are discussed below:

  • Bar Graph - While comparing the classification of data, a Bar graph is used. It is called a bar graph as it consists of rectangular, vertical, and horizontal bars.

  • Pie Chart - when you need to show the comparison between different parts of a whole, the Pie chart is most suitable.

  • Histogram - Histogram looks just like Bar graphs, but is used to represent data into ranges.

  • Linear Graph - Linear graph is ideal to present the changes occurring in data over some time. 

2. Why should one refer to NCERT Exemplar solutions of Chapter 12 Introduction to Graphs?  

Students should refer to the NCERT Exemplar solution of Chapter 12 (Introduction to Graphs) of Class 8 by Vednatu, as these solutions are prepared with the utmost care, to make it easier for the student to understand the reasoning and logic behind every answer. These solutions are created following the latest guidelines of CBSE, so the students can get familiar with the exam pattern and score better.


For the sake of convenience, Students can download these solutions in PDF format and can review them at any time and anywhere, without the internet. 

3. Give examples of the use of graphs in real life?

  • Business uses graphs for the comparisons of two quantities, and how they get affected when one of them is changed.

  • In medical science, graphs are used to compare the effectiveness of different medicines

  • Graphs are used to plan the budget, both at an individual level or a country level. It became easier to find mistakes and topics that need improvement.

  • Graphs are used in various kinds of research. In general, data collected in research is huge, so easier visual representation is needed.

  • Graphs are also used to represent various statistical data of many different projects.

4. What are the Important points to remember in the chapter introduction of graphs?

  • X coordinates for a point are the points’ distance from the y-axis.

  • Y coordinates for a point are the points’ distance from the x-axis.

  • Coordinates at origin are (0,0)

  • For fixing a point on the graph, x and y coordinates are required.

  • If a line graph is a complete unbroken line, then it is called a linear graph.

  • A pie graph is used, when it is needed to compare parts of a whole

  • Graphs represent a relationship between two or more variables.

5. What is the Cartesian plane?

The Cartesian plane is named after a French Mathematician named Rene Descartes, who invented this system and formalized its use in modern Mathematics. The cartesian plane is a rectangular two-dimensional coordinate plane, which is defined by the intersection of two perpendicular lines, named X-axis (Horizontal) and y-axis (Vertical). Where perpendicular lines meet is called the origin and given the coordinates (0,0). With the help of these lines, one can easily describe the location of a point lying within this plane.
