Purple – hospital, Brown –Cementary.

(b) Mark the green ‘X’ at the intersection of Road ‘C’ and Nehru Road, Green ‘Y’ at the intersection of Gandhi Road and Road ‘A’.

(c) In red, draw a short street route from Library to the bus depot.

(d) Which is further east, the city park or the market?

(c) The shortest route from the library to bus depot is represented by red colour.

(d) Between the market and the city park, the city park is further east.

(e) Between the primary school and Sr. Secondary School, the Sr. Secondary School is further

south.

**Exercise 10.3**

**Question 1:**

Can a polygon have for its faces:

(i) 3 triangles (ii) 4 triangles (iii) a square and four triangles

Answer:

(i) No, a polyhedron cannot have 3 triangles for its faces.

(ii) Yes, a polyhedron can have four triangles which is known as pyramid on triangular base.

(iii) Yes, a polyhedron has its faces a square and four triangles which makes a pyramid on

square base.

**Question 2:**

Is it possible to have a polyhedron with any given number of faces? (Hint: Think of a pyramid)

Answer:

It is possible, only if the numbers of faces are greater than or equal to 4.

**Question 3:**

Which are prisms among the following:

Answer:

Figure (ii) unsharpened pencil and figure (iv) a box are prisms.

**Question 4:**

(i) How are prisms and cylinders alike?

(ii) How are pyramids and cones alike?

Answer:

(i) A prism becomes a cylinder as the number of sides of its base becomes larger and larger.

(ii) A pyramid becomes a cone as the number of sides of its base becomes larger and larger.

**Question 5:**

Is a square prism same as a cube? Explain.

Answer:

No, it can be a cuboid also.

**Question 6:**

Verify Euler’s formula for these solids.

Answer:

(i) Here, figure (i) contains 7 faces, 10 vertices and 15 edges.

Using Euler’s formula, we see F + V – E = 2

Putting F = 7, V = 10 and E = 15,

F + V – E = 2

=> 7 + 10 – 5 = 2

=> 17 – 15 = 2

=> 2 = 2

=> L.H.S. = R.H.S.

(ii) Here, figure (ii) contains 9 faces, 9 vertices and 16 edges.

Using Euler’s formula, we see F + V – E = 2

F + V – E = 2

=> 9 + 9 – 16 = 2

=> 18 – 16 = 2

=> 2 = 2

=> L.H.S. = R.H.S.

**Question 7:**

Using Euler’s formula, find the unknown:

Answer:

In first column, F = ?, V = 6 and E = 12

Using Euler’s formula, we see F + V – E = 2

F + V – E = 2

=> F + 6 – 12 = 2

=> F – 6 = 2

=> F = 2 + 6 = 8

Hence there are 8 faces.

In second column, F = 5, V = ? and E = 9

Using Euler’s formula, we see F + V – E = 2

F + V – E = 2

=> 5 + V – 9 = 2

=> V – 4 = 2

=> V = 2 + 4 = 6

Hence there are 6 vertices.

In third column, F = 20, V = 12 and E = ?

Using Euler’s formula, we see F + V – E = 2

F + V – E = 2

=> 20 + 12 – E = 2

=> 32 – E = 2

=> E = 32 – 2 = 30

Hence there are 30 edges.

**Question 8:**

Can a polyhedron have 10 faces, 20 edges and 15 vertices?

Answer:

If F = 10, V = 15 and E = 20.

Then, we know Using Euler’s formula, F + V – E = 2

L.H.S. = F + V – E

= 10 + 15 – 20

= 25 – 20

= 5

R.H.S. = 2

L.H.S. ≠ R.H.S.

Therefore, it does not follow Euler’s formula
