**Quantitative Aptitude – Geometry – Triangles**

**Question**

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

A) 225√3

B) 500 / √3

C) 275 / √3

D) 250 / √3

**Answer**

Option (B)

**Solution**

As per the question from CAT 2017 – Quantitative Aptitude – Geometry – Triangles,

Area of triangle = root (s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c))

S = 50

Area = 250 * root(3)

Centroid divides triangle in the ratio 2:1

Area of remaining portion of triangle: 2/3 * (Area of Triangle) = 500/root(3)

Option (B)
