## DAV Class 7 Maths Chapter 8 Value Based Questions

Question 1.

Due to storm and rain a tree broke and fell on a road which prevented the people and vehicles to pass by. A group of children decided to solve the problem. They lifted the broken part and put it aside. All were very thankful to these brave children.

(i) If the width of the road was 4m and length of the broken part removed was 5m, what was the height of the tree?

(ii) What value of the children is depicted here?

Answer:

(i) Let the height of the remaining tree portion of tree be hm.

Width of the road, BC = 4m [Given]

Length of the broken part, AC = 5m [Given]

Now, in right angled ΔABC,

AB^{2} + BC^{2} = AC^{2} [By Pythagoras theorem]

⇒ (h)^{2} + (4)^{2} = (5)^{2}

⇒ h^{2} +16 = 25 Tree

⇒ h^{2} = 25 – 16

⇒ h^{2} = 9 w

⇒ h = 3m

Hence, the height of the tree was (h + 5) m i.e., (3 + 5) m = 8 m.

(ii) Value: Children have helpful nature.

Question 2.

For a Rangoli Competition the four participants of the Indira House drew the following Rangoli. They drew a regular hexagon of side 8 cm and then drew 6 equilateral triangles of same size.

(i) What is the length of each side of the equilateral triangle?

(ii) What value of the children is depicted here?

Answer:

(i) Let ABCDEF be the regular hexagon of side 8 cm.

As ABCDEF is a regular hexagon, so all six sides of it are in equal length.

That is, AB = BC = CD = DE = EF = AF = 8 cm (see figure)

Now, as AF = 8 cm is one of the side of an equilateral ΔPAF.

∴ PA = AF = FP = 8 cm

[∵ In an equilateral triangle, all the three sides are equal in length]

Now, according to the question, each equilateral triangle drawn is of same size.

Therefore, all the sides of six equilateral triangles are equal in length i.e.; 8 cm. Hence, the length of each side of the equilateral triangle is 8 cm.

(ii) Value: The children worked collaboratively in a team in order to achieve their goal. Drawing a Rangoli by the four participants shows their teamwork. They co-operated with each other, using their individual skills and providing constructive feedback, despite any personal conflict between individuals.
