A circle is inscribed in a quadrant of a circle of radius 1 unit. What is the area of the shaded region?

I donot have the options and ans, but we can have discussion over this.

PS: This is a difficult question and might not be tested in GMAT, but solving such questions might help us learning new concept.

hahaha... :D

Let the radius of the smaller circle be r... and let the distance from center of bigger circle to the circumference of inscribed circle be x. Check the figure.

2r + x = 1

x + r = \sqrt{2}r
Therefore x = (\sqrt{2} - 1)r

Therefore 2r + (\sqrt{2} - 1)r = 1
Which gives r = (\sqrt{2} - 1)

Now you can find the area of the smaller circle....

This is the limit, this fool can reach! All over to the other fool!

lol i think its solved.

Shaded portion = Area of sector 1 - area of triangle 1 - area of sector 2

where area of sector 1 = area made by 45 degree of bigger circle.

area of triangle 1 is where you have applied Pythagoras theorem

area of sector 2 = area made by 135 degree of smaller circle.

Its all about team work, Gmat should also be flexible.

I will find my partner to be good in verbal and then atleast i can think of 700+

One query,, how did jeteesh derive the following equation.

x+r=\sqrt{2}r

I am struck.

Just look at the right angled triangle whose 2 sides are r and hypotenuse is x+r

=>(x+r)^2 = r^2 +r^2

=> x+r = \sqrt{2}r

Here x is basically the distance from the center of bigger circle to the smaller circle.

How does the first equation can turn to the second one?
2r + (\sqrt{2} - 1)r = 1
r = (\sqrt{2} - 1)

if v can extend the figure like take big circle ... then put in 4 circles of (root2 -1) radius in it.... then joining the centres of four circles v will form a square with an area = (2(root2 -1))^2 coz radiu smaller circles is root2 -1 ..... then to get the shaded region

= {area of big circle - {3(area of smaller circle) + (2(root2 -1))^2}} / 8 ...... v subtracted three circles coz i circle ia in the square..

area of small circle is=\pi{r^2}=\pi*(\sqrt{2} - 1)^2
area of Quarter=(\pi*{1^2})/4=\pi/4.
area of shaded region=(\pi/4-\pi*(\sqrt{2} - 1)^2 -(r^2-1/4(\pi*(\sqrt{2} - 1)^2)) / 2

Re: geometry - circles [#permalink]  06 May 2011, 07:11
the bigger radius comes out to be = 1 + 2^(1/2).
So from the sector Area,subtract the circle area and the area of the sector between circle and edge of the bigger sector

the area of the edge sector = 1- pi/4

thus the shaded region area can be found out.

Looking for complete solution with good explanation. I could reach half of the solution.

area of Quarter of big circle=(\pi*{1^2})/4=\pi/4.
The radius r of the inscribed smaller circle: r = \sqrt{2} - 1
See explanation for this above.

Area not covered by small circle = \pi/4-\pi*(\sqrt{2} - 1)^2

Small area in the corner (near center of big circle) not covered by small circle:
Small square (see picture above) - a quarter of the smaller circle
(\sqrt{2} - 1)^2-\pi*(\sqrt{2} - 1)^2/4

Area not covered by small circle and not including the small area in the corner:
\pi/4-\pi*(\sqrt{2} - 1)^2-((\sqrt{2} - 1)^2-\pi*(\sqrt{2} - 1)^2/4)

This area now represents the shaded area upper left and its mirror area bottom right. So we only have to divide by 2 to get the area of the shaded area.
(\pi/4-\pi*(\sqrt{2} - 1)^2-((\sqrt{2} - 1)^2-\pi*(\sqrt{2} - 1)^2/4))/2 = 0.10478
