#### Question

The area of an equilateral triangle ABC is 17320.5 cm2. With each vertex of the triangle as centre, a circle is drawn with radius equal to half the length of the side of the triangle (See the given figure). Find the area of shaded region. [Use π = 3.14 and sqrt3 = 1.73205] #### Solution

Let the side of the equilateral triangle be a.

Area of equilateral triangle = 17320.5 cm2

sqrt3/4(s)^2 = 17320.5

1.7320/4a^2 = 17320.5

a2 = 4 x 10000

a = 200 cm Each sector is of measure 60°.

Area of sector ADEF = 60^@/360^@ xx pixxr^2

=1/6xxpixx(100)^2

=(3.14xx10000)/6

= 15700/3 cm^2

Area of shaded region = Area of equilateral triangle − 3 × Area of each sector

= 17320.5 - 3xx 15700/3

= 17320.5-15700 = 1620.5 cm2

Is there an error in this question or solution?
