Geometry and Shapes 

Geometry is useful in recognizing the shapes. Do you want to know the shape of` your house, toys and favorite chocolate?



Let Us Revise Few Shapes


Maths class 4 Fractions


Now we will study the shapes formed with the help of sleeping lines, slanting lines, curved lines!

Angle is the figure formed by two rays, called sides of angle. Both sides have common end point, called vertex of the angle.

Maths class 4 Fractions



  • A positive angle goes anti-clockwise.
  • A negative angle goes clockwise.


Type of Angles


Sr No

Angle Type



Acute Angle

An angle less than 90°


Right Angle

An angle that is equal to 90°


Obtuse Angle

An angle greater than 90° but less than 180°


Straight Angle

An angle equals to 180°


Reflex Angle

An angle greater than 180°

A circle is the locus of all the points that are equidistant from central point.


  • Radius of Circle: It is the distance from the center to the edge.


  • Diameter: It starts from one end of the circle and ends on another while going through center.

Formula: Diameter = 2×Radius

  • Circumference: It is the distance around the edge of circle.

Formula: Circumference = 2×Π×Radius

  • Area of Circle: The area of circle is Π times the radius squared.


Formula: Area =Π×Radius²


Maths class 4 Fractions


Example 1: A circle has radius 50 cm. Calculate its circumference.


Sol: Diameter = 2×50 = 100 cm

Circumference = Π×100 = 314 cm


Example 2: Find the area of circle having radius 2 m?


Sol: Area = Π×R² = 3.14×2×2 = 3.14×4 = 12.56 m²


Practice These Questions


  • Find out the number of sleeping lines, slanting lines, curved lines, circles, square, triangle and rectangle in the figure below:


Maths class 4 Fractions



  • Name the angles:
  1. 78°
  2. 156°
  • 45°
  1. 255°
  2. 180°


  • Find out the diameter, circumference and area of circle whose radius is 20 cm?



  • Ray is extended to one end only.
  • Line is extended towards both ends.
  • Line segment is a part of line with two end points.
  • Angle less than 90° is acute angle; angle more than 90° is obtuse angle.
  • 90°angle is called right angle.
  • Radius of circle is half of its diameter.
