Solution

Let the four shaded regions be I, II, III and IV and the centres of the semicircles be P, Q, R and S, as shown in the figure.

It is given that the side of the square is 14 cm. 

Now,

Area of region I + Area of region III = Area of the square − Areas of the semicircles with centres S and Q

=14×142×`1/2`×π×72          ( Radius of the semicircle=7 cm)

`=192-49xx22/7`

=196154

=42 cm2

Similarly, 

Area of region II + Area of region IV = Area of the square − Areas of the semicircles with centres P and R.

=14×142×`1/2`×π×72    ( Radius of the semicircle=7 cm)

=19649×`22/7`

 =196154

=42 cm2

Thus,
Area of the shaded region = Area of region I + Area of region III + Area of region II + Area of region IV 

= 42 cm2 + 42 cm2 

= 84 cm2
