An umbrella has 8 ribs which are equally spaced (see Fig. 12.13). Assuming umbrella to be a flat circle of radius 45 cm, find the area between the two consecutive ribs of the umbrella.

Solution :-

The radius (r) of the umbrella when flat = 45 cm

So, the area of the circle (A) = πr2 = (\( \dfrac{22}{7}\))×(45)=6364.29 cm2

Total number of ribs (n) = 8

The area between the two consecutive ribs of the umbrella = \(\dfrac{A}{n}\)

\(\dfrac{6364.29}{8} \) cm2

Or, The area between the two consecutive ribs of the umbrella = 795.5 cm2
