A: \(16 - 4\pi\)

B: \(8 - 2\pi\)

C: \(8\pi - 16\)

D: \(4\pi - 8\)

E: \(2\pi - 4\)


First of all, notice that the radii of the circles = the side of the square = 4.

Look at the image below:

When we subtract the area of DBC, which is 1/4th of the circle, we get the area of the red portion --> red = \(4^2 - \frac{\pi{r^2}}{4}=16 - 4\pi\).

If we subtract twice of that from the area of the square, we get the area of the leaf shaped figure in the centre --> the area of the leaf = \(4^2-2*(16 - 4\pi)=8\pi-16\).

The area of the shaded region is 1/4th of the area of the leaf = \(\frac{8\pi-16}{4}=2\pi-4\).

Answer: E.

Hope it's clear.

Thanks Bunuel,

Another method of solving. Consider the arc BPD with center at C. It is 1/4th of circle with center at C and radius of BC that is side of the square - 4.
So the area of the BPDC is 1/4 * pi * 4* 4 = 4*pi.

in the arc, BCD is right angle triangle at C, base and height will be side of the square.
Hence area of triangle BCD will be 1/2 * 4 * 4 = 8.

difference between these two area will give Arc BPD with base of BD = 4pi - 8.
half of it will be 2pi - 4. which will be area of the shaded region.

Refer diagram below:

Let the area of the required shaded region = x

Area of all other regions shaded would be as shown in the diagram as area of the full square = 16

Attachment:

Consider any Quarter circle

\(Its Area = \frac{\pi4^2}{4} = 4x + 8 - 2x\)

\(x = 2\pi - 4\)

Answer = E

I solved it this way:

Area of square=16

Area under one quarter arc=90/360*pie*4^2=4pie.

Subtract it from the Area of square,we will get Area of remaining portion(DCBQD)=16-4pie

Similarly,Area under the second quarter arc=4 pie.

Subtract it from the Area of square,you will get the remaining Area(ABPDA)=16-4pie

Add both of these areas=32-8pie.

Now that you get the areas of these two portions,subtract it from the Area of square=16-(32-8pie)=8pie-16

So,area of just 1/4th section=1/4*8pie-16=2pie-4

let the point of intersection of diagonals be O. Now the area of the shaded region is (area of sector BPC - area of triangle BOC)

area of sector = [pi/4][/2*p] * pi * r2 = 2pi
area of triangle BOC = 16/4 = 4

result : 2pi - 4
Option E

A: \(16 - 4\pi\)

B: \(8 - 2\pi\)

C: \(8\pi - 16\)

D: \(4\pi - 8\)

E: \(2\pi - 4\)


That is how I solved it.

Area of Square= 4*4 = 16

Area of half square= 8

Area of one arc = 90/360 * pi *4*4= 4pi

area of shaded region= 4pi-8/2= 2pi-4

E is the answer
