Area of square minus circle yields 4 regions' area

(Square area) - (Circle area) = area of all 4 equal small corner regions

Square side length = \(4\)
Area of square = \(s^2 = 16\)

Square's side length = circle's diameter, \(d\) and \(d = 2r\)
\(4 = 2r\)
\(r = 2\)
Circle's area: \(πr^2 = 4π\)

(Square area) - (circle area)= Area of 4 regions= \(16 - 4π\)

2 of 4 regions are shaded
So if (Square area) - (circle area) = 4 regions

Then (Square area) - (circle area) divided by 2 = area of 2 regions

\(\frac{16 - 4π}{2}\) = 2 shaded regions

Shaded regions' area = \(8 - 2π\)

Answer B

Well, this is an easy one.

We basically need to find the are not covered by the circle, within the square and then divide than area in half.
Area of square = 4^2=16
Area of circle = (2^2)pi [diameter = side of square=4. hence, radius=2]
Area of the shaded region = (16-4pi)/2= 8-2pi

Hence, answer is B.
