# CAT 2017 [slot 1] Question with solution 16

Question 16:
From a triangle ABC with sides of lengths 40 ft, 25 ft and 35 ft, a triangular portion GBC is cut off where G is the centroid of ABC. The area, in sq ft, of the remaining portion of triangle ABC is
1. $225\sqrt{3}$
2. $\frac{500}{\sqrt{3}}$
3. $\frac{275}{\sqrt{3}}$
4. $\frac{250}{\sqrt{3}}$
Option: 2
Explanation:

The lengths are given as 40, 25 and 35.

The perimeter = 100

Semi-perimeter, s = 50

Area = $\sqrt{50 × 10 × 25 × 15}$ = $250\sqrt{3}$ The triangle formed by the centroid and two vertices is removed.

Since the cenroid divides the median in the ratio 2 : 1

The remaining area will be two-thirds the area of the original triangle.

Remaining area = $\frac{2}{3}× 250\sqrt{3}$ = $\frac{500}{\sqrt{3}}$
