# Find the area of a shaded region in the Fig.15.73, where a circular arc of radius 7cm has been drawn with vertex A of an equilateral triangle ABC of side 14cm as centre.

Given,

Side of equilateral triangle = 14cm

Area of circle =

Area of circle =

Area of equilateral triangle =

Area of equilateral triangle =

=

We know that an equilateral triangle always subtend an angle of 60 at centre area of sector =

=

= = 25.666cm2

This area is common in both the figure so,

Area of shaded region = (area of circle + area of equilateral triangle - 2×area of sector)

= (154+84.77-2×25.67)

= (238.77-51.33) = 187.44cm2
