Area of each circle = π*r^2 = π*5^2 = 25π
Area of three circles = 3*25π = 75π
Area of square = S*S = 30*30 = 900

Required fraction = 75π / 900
= π/12

Hence, A.

Area of the square = pie \(r^2\)

But we have 3 circles having same radius .

So, 3*pie *\((r)^2\) = 3 *pie * \((5)^2\)

= 75 pie

Ara of the square = 30*30 = 900

Required Fraction = pie *75 /900

= pie / 12

A is the best answer.

Solution



Given:

    • The radius of shaded circular region in the figure above is 5.
    • Length of a side of the square= 30

To find:

• Fraction of the total area of the shaded regions to area of the square region



Approach and Working:

    • Area of the square= \(30^2= 900\)
    • Area of one shaded circle= \(π(5)^2= 25 π\)
      o Hence, area of 3 shaded circles= \(3*25 π= 75 π\)
      o Area of shaded regions to area of square region= \(\frac{75 π}{900}= \frac{25π}{300}= \frac{π}{12}\)

Hence, the correct answer is option A.

Answer: A

The area of the shaded regions is:

3 x 5^2 x π = 75π

The area of the entire square is 30 x 30 = 900, so the shaded region as a fraction of the area of the square is:

75π/900 = 3π/36 = π/12

Answer: A
