A wire would enclose an area of 1936 m2, if it is bent into a square. The wire is cut into two pieces. The longer piece is thrice as long as the shorter piece. The long and the short pieces are bent into a square and a circle, respectively. Which of the following choices is closest to the sum of the areas enclosed by the two pieces in square meters?
 1096
 1111
 1243
 2486
Correct Option : C
Side of the square = 44 m
Long piece = 44 × 3 = 132 m and short piece = 44 m
Hence, equating these values with the perimeter of square and circle respectively we will get the required answer as 1243 m².
