# Calculate the area of the designed region in the given figure common between the two quadrants of circles of radius 8 cm each. - Mathematics

Calculate the area of the designed region in the given figure common between the two quadrants of circles of radius 8 cm each. [Use Π = 22/7]

#### Solution

The designed area is the common region between two sectors BAEC and DAFC.

Area of sector BAEC = 90^@/360^@ xx 22/7xx(8)^2

=1/4xx22/7xx64

=(22xx16)/7 cm^2

= 352/7 cm^2

Area of ΔBAC = 1/2xxBAxxBC

= 1/2xx8xx7 = 32 cm^2

Area of the designed portion = 2 × (Area of segment AEC)

= 2 × (Area of sector BAEC − Area of ΔBAC)

= 2xx(352/7 - 32) = 2((352-224)/4)

= (2xx128)/7

= 256/7 cm^2
