The rectangular region above contains two circles and a semicircle, each with a radius of 7. If 22/7 is used as an approximation for π, then the area of the shaded region is approximately

(A) 105
(B) 210
(C) 380
(D) 385
(E) 405

The rectangular region above contains two circles and a semicircle, each with a radius of 7. If 22/7 is used as an approximation for π, then the area of the shaded region is approximately

(A) 105
(B) 210
(C) 380
(D) 385
(E) 405

The dimensions of the rectangle is 5 radii by 2 radii, thus 35 by 14. Therefore its area is 35*14.

The area of the two circles and the semicircle is \(2.5*\pi{r^2}=\frac{5}{2}*\frac{22}{7}*7^2=35*11\).

Thus the area of the shaded region is approximately 35*14-35*11 = 35(14-11)=35*3=105.

Answer: A.

(D) 385

Area of 2 Circles = 2*[22/7 * 7 * 7] = 2 * 154 = 308

Area of semicircle = 1/2 * [ 154 ] = 77.

Total Area of 2 circles + Semicircle = 308 + 77 = 385

Area of Rectangle = 35 * 14 = 490

Area of shaded region = 490 - 385 = 105

Option A
Hope it is clear

Cheers

Hey, can somebody explain here , why the dimensions of the rectangle are 35 by 14, when we are given only the radius is 7.

Help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance :)

Look at the diagram below:

The length of the rectangle is 5r, so 5*7=35 and the width is 2r, so 2*7=14.

Hope it's clear.
