imo B

hypotenuse of triangle= \(\sqrt{8}\) = 2(R)
R= \(\sqrt{2}\)
area of semicircle = pi(\(\sqrt{R^2}\))/2
=pi
area of triangle = 0.5 *2*2 = 2
total area = pi +2 = 5 approximately

IMO :B

Hypotenuse = 2^2 +2^2
=>Hypotenuse= 2root2

Radius of circle= Hypotenuse/2=root2
Area of semi circle= pi* r * r/2= pi
Area of triangle= 1/2 *2 *2= 2

=> Total area= pi+2=2+3.14=5.14~5.

The triangle is 45-45-90 triangle so ratio of sides is \(1:1:\sqrt{2}\)
So length of the hypotenuse is \(2*\sqrt{2}\) which is also the diameter of the semi circle. Radius = \(\sqrt{2}\)

Total area \(= \frac{1}{2}*2*2 + (1/2)*\pi*\sqrt{2}^2 = 5\) approximately

Answer (B)

We see that the triangle is a 45-45-90 triangle, with ratio of side: side: hypotenuse of x: x: x√2. Thus, the hypotenuse of the triangle = 2√2 = diameter of circle, so the radius of the semi-circle is √2.

Thus, the area of the semi-circle is (1/2)*π(√2)^2 = π ≈ 3.14

The area of the triangle is 2 x 2 x 1/2 = 2.

So the total area is 5.14, which is approximately 5.

Answer: B

If not sure about the shortcuts:

Area of right triangle=\(\frac{(b*h)}{2}=\frac{(2*2)}{2}=2\)

Length of right triangle's hypotenuse, \(h\) = length of semicircle's diameter, \(d\)

\(2^2 + 2^2 = h^2\)
\(8 = h^2\)
\(\sqrt{h^2}=\sqrt{4*2}\)
\(h = 2\sqrt{2} =
d\)


\(d = 2r\), \(2\sqrt{2}=2r\), \(r=\sqrt{2}\)

Area of semicircle:
\(\frac{\pi r^2}{2}=\frac{3.14*(\sqrt{2})^2}{2}=\frac{3.14*2}{2}=3.14\)

Total area = \(2 + 3.14=5.14\approx{5}\)

Answer B

Straight B.

Total area= Area of triangle + Area of semicircle
= (1/2)*2*2 + (1/2)*3.14* ((2root2)/2)^2
= 5.14
= 5 (Approx)

10 second approach!

The area of the shaded region is slightly more than the area of the square with a side of 2.
So, the area of the shaded region is slightly more than 2^2=4 leading us to B.
