Join ABC. All sides are equal, so it is an equilateral triangle.
Area of the equilateral triangle `=sqrt(3)/4xx"Side"^2`

`= 1.73/4xx12xx12`

= 62.28 cm

Area of the arc of the circle`=60/360pi"r"^2`

`= 1/6pi"r"^2`


= 18.86 cm2

Area of the three sectors = 3 × 18.86 = 56.57 cm

Area of the shaded portion = Area of the triangle -- Area of the three quadrants

= 62.28 - 56.57

= 5.71 cm

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
