# In the Given Figure, If O is the Center of the Circle, Pq is a Chord. ∠ Poq = 90°, Area of the Shaded Region is 114 Cm2, Find the Radius of the Circle. π = 3.14) - Geometry

Sum

In the given figure, if O is the center of the circle, PQ is a chord. $\angle$ POQ = 90°, area of the shaded region is 114 cm2, find the radius of the circle. $\pi$ = 3.14)

#### Solution

∠POQ = θ = 90º
Let the radius of the circle be r cm.
Area of the shaded region = Area of the segment PRQ = 114 cm

$\therefore r^2 \left( \frac{\pi\theta}{360° } - \frac{\sin\theta}{2} \right) = 114$

$\Rightarrow r^2 \left( \frac{3 . 14 \times 90° }{360° } - \frac{\sin90° }{2} \right) = 114$

$\Rightarrow r^2 \left( \frac{3 . 14}{4} - \frac{1}{2} \right) = 114$

$\Rightarrow r^2 \times \left( 0 . 785 - 0 . 5 \right) = 114$

$\Rightarrow r = \sqrt{\frac{114}{0 . 285}}$

$\Rightarrow r = \sqrt{400} = 20 cm$

Thus, the radius of the circle is 20 cm.
