Look at the figure carefully shaded region is bounded between four sectors of the circle with same radius and a square of side 1 cm.

Therefore, the area of the shaded region is nothing but the difference the area of the square and area of one circle.

`"∴ Area of the shaded region=Area of square-Area of a circle"`

`"∴ Area of the shaded region"=1^2-pi (0.5^2)`

`"∴ Area of the shaded region"=1-0.25pi`

Substituting `pi=3.1416` we get,

`"∴ Area of the shaded region"=1-3.1416xx0.25`

`"∴ Area of the shaded region"=1-0.7854`

`"∴ Area of the shaded region"=0.2146`

Therefore, area of the shaded region is `0.2146cm^2`
