Q. 154.3( 12 Votes )

Nitu has drawn a square ABCD of which length of each side as 12 cm. My sister has drawn four circular arcs with length of radius 6 cm. centering A, B, C, D like picture besides and she has designed some portion. Let us write by calculating the area of shaded region.


Answer :

Given, each side of square = 12cm


Area of Square ABCD = side2


(12)2


144cm2


Let Radius of each quadrant be r


r = 6 cm (given)


Now, the sum of the area of the four quadrants at the four corners of the square


4 × area of each quadrant ( area of circle = πr2where r is the radius)


area of quadrant =




113.14cm2


Now, area of shaded portion


= Area of square, ABCD - sum of the areas of four quadrants at the four corners of the square


144 – 113 .14 cm2


= 30 .86 cm2
