Hi All,
Area of the shaded region = Area of the square – area of the circle.
Since line segment AB forms the 45-45-90 triangle with square.
It gives side of the square as 8. And radius of the circle as 4.
Area of the shaded region = 64 – 16pi.
= 16(4-Pi).
You can also approach this question using POE.
the shaded region should be slightly less than 1/4th of the area of the square. Since area of the square is 64. We are looking some answer close to 16.
Let pi = 3.1
A. 4(4 - π) this is less than 4 eliminate.
B. 4(8 - π) this is more than 16 eliminate.
C. 8(2 - π) this is negative eliminate.
D. 8(8 - π) this is more than 16 eliminate.
E. 16(4 - π) this is very close to 16. So answer is E.
POE is just in case if you don’t know how to solve.
