Area of shaded region = 1/4 Area of the circle - Area of the triangle ABC = 1/4*P*6^2 - 1/2*6*6=9P-18

The area of the shaded region =
(Sector area) - (triangle area)

Sector central angle = 90°
Sector = \(\frac{90}{360} =\frac{1}{4}\) circle area

Circle area = \(\pi*r^2 = 36\pi\)
Sector area: \(\frac{36\pi}{4}=9\pi\)

Right isosceles triangle area:
\(\frac{s^2}{2}=\frac{6^2}{2}=18\)

Shaded region's area =
(Sector area) - (triangle area)
\(9\pi - 18\)

Answer E

*OR
Area = \(\frac{b*h}{2}=\frac{6*6}{2}=\frac{36}{2}=18\)

As the angle of the sector is 90 Degrees. We have to find out the Area sector using the formulae 90/360 x π 6^2. Then subtract the area of the Right Angle Triangle.

Area of shaded region

= pi x 6x6 - 1/2x6x6

C should be the answer.

Is my approach correct bunnel ?

We see that the area of the shaded region is ¼ of the area of the circle minus the area of triangle ABC.

Since the radius is 6, AB = BC = 6, so we have a 45-45-90 right triangle. So, the area of triangle ABC is 6 x 6 x 1/2 = 18.

The area of the entire circle is 6^2π = 36π. Thus, a quarter of its area is ¼ x 36π = 9π.

Therefore, the area of the shaded region is 9π - 18.

Answer: E
