  22. In case of circle inside an equilateral triangle radius=(√3 x Side)/6
    As radius= 2 cm
    So, side= (2 x 6)/√3
    Area= (√3/4) x side2 = (√3/4) x ((2 x 6)/√3)2 = 12 √3

  23. ans =6

    In case of circle inside an equilateral triangle radius=(√3 x Side)/6
    As radius= 2 cm
    So, side= (2 x 6)/√3
    Area= (√3/4) x side2 = (√3/4) x ((2 x 6)/√3)2 = 12 √3

    and BQ = x
    AD = 2
    DP = 1
    in triangle PDC and PAQ

    2/(2+x) = 1/3
    solve it
    x = 4
