Answer :

**Given:** Length of outer rectangle = 26 m

Breadth of outer rectangle = 12 m

**To find:** Area of shaded region.

**Explanation:**

Label the figure as above.

Area of the shaded region = Area of the rectangle ABCD – (Area of the rect. EFGH + (Area of the semi-circle EFJ +Area of the semi-circle GHI)

Length and breadth of outer rect. ABCD are 26 m and 12 m respectively.

∴ Area of the rect. ABCD = Length × Breadth = AB × BC = 26 × 12 = 312 m^{2}

From the figure, length and breadth of inner rect. EFGH are (26-5-5) m and (12-4-4) m, i.e. 16 m and 4 m respectively.

∴ Area of the rect. EFGH = Length × Breadth

= EF × FG

= 16 × 4 = 64 m^{2}

Breadth of the inner rectangle = Diameter of the semi-circle EJF = d = 4m

∴ Radius of semi-circle EJF = r = 2 m

Area of the semi-circle EFJ = Area of the semi-circle GHI = πr^{2}/2 = 4π/2 = 2π m^{2}

∴ Area of shaded region = 312 – (64 + 2π + 2π) m^{2} = (248 – 4π ) m^{2}

Hence area of shaded region is (248 – 4π ) m^{2}.
