Sum

In the following figure, ABC is an equilateral triangle of side 8 cm. A, B and C are the centres of circular arcs of radius 4 cm. Find the area of the shaded region correct upto 2 decimal places. (Take π =3.142 andsqrt3 = 1.732).

#### Solution

Area of the shaded region can be calculated as shown below,

Area of the shaded region = Area of equilateral triangle − 3 xxarea of circular arc

"∴ Area of the shaded region"=sqrt3/4xx8xx8-3xx60/360xxpixx4xx4

"∴ Area of the shaded region"=sqrt3xx2xx8-3xx1/6xxpixx4xx4

"∴ Area of the shaded region"=sqrt3xx16-1/2xxpixx16

"∴ Area of the shaded region"=sqrt3xx16-pixx8

Substituting sqrt3=1.732 and pi=3.142we get,

"∴ Area of the shaded region"=1732xx16-3.142xx8

"∴ Area of the shaded region"=27.712-25.136

"∴ Area of the shaded region"=2.576

Therefore, area of the shaded region is 2.576 cm^2
