**Short Answer Type Questions II [3 Marks]**

**Question 1.**

In figure, ABCD is a square of side 14 cm. Semi-circles are drawn with each side of square as diameter. Find the area of the shaded region.

**Solution:**

Area of the square ABCD = 14 x 14 = 196 cm²

Area of semicircle AOB=1/2 x πr²

=1/2×22/7x7x7

Similarly, area of semicircle DOC = 77 cm²

Hence, the area of shaded region (Part W and Part Y) = Area of square -Area of two semicircles AOB and COD

= 196 – 154 = 42 cm²

Therefore, area of four shaded parts (i.e. X, Y, W, Z) = (2 x 42) cm² = 84 cm²

**Question 2.**

In figure, are shown two arcs PAQ and PBQ. Arc PAQ is a part of circle with centre O and radius OP while arc PBQ is a semicircle drawn on PQ as diameter with centre M. If OP = PQ = 10 cm, show that area of shaded region is

25(√3- π /6)cm²

**Solution:**

OP = OQ = 10 cm

PQ = 10 cm

So, ΔOPQ is an equilateral triangle

∠POQ = 60°

Area of segment PAQM = Area of sector OPAQ – Area of ΔOPQ

=60/360 x π x 10 x 10-√3/4 x 10 x 10

=(100π/6-100√3/4)cm²

Area of semicircle =1/2 x π x 5 x 5 = 25/2π cm²

Area of the shaded region =25/2π-(100π/6-100√3/4)=25π/2-50π/3+25√3

=75π-100π/6+25√3=25√3-25π/6

=25(√3-π/6)cm²

**Question 3.**

In figure, O is the centre of a circle such that diameter AB = 13 cm and AC = 12 cm. BC is joined. Find the area of the shaded region.

**Solution:**

Here, BC² = AB²-AC²

= 169-144 = 25 BC = 5

Area of shaded region = Area of semicircle – Area of right triangle ABC

=1/2 x πr²-1/2AC x BC

=1/2 x 3.14(13/2)²-1/2 x 12 x 5

=66.33 – 30 = 36.33 cm²

**Question 4.**

In figure, find the area of the shaded region, enclosed between two concentric circles of radii 7 cm and 14 cm where∠AOC = 40°.

**Solution:**

Area of shaded region=360°-θ/360° x π(R²-r²)

=320°/360° x π[(14)²-(7)²]

=8/9 x 22/7(196-49)=8/9 x 22/7 x 147

=1232/3=410.67 cm²

**Question 5.**

Find the area of shaded region in figure, where a circle of radius 6 cm has been drawn with vertex O of an equilateral triangle OAB of side 12 cm

**Solution:**

Area of ΔOAB=√3/4(side)²=√3/4 x (12)²

=36√3=36 x 1.73

=62.28 cm²

area of circle with center O =πr²=3.14 x (6)²

=3.14 x 36 =113.04 cm²

area of sector(OLQP)=πr² x θ/360°=3.14 x 6² x 60°/360°

=3.14 x 36 x 1/6 =18.84 cm²

area of shaded region=area of ΔOAB+area of circle-2 area of sector OLQP

=(62.28+113.04-2 x 18.84)cm²

=137.64cm²

**Question 6.**

In figure, is a chord AB of a circle, with centre O and radius 10 cm, that subtends a right angle at the centre of the circle. Find the area of the minor segment AQBP. Hence, find the area of major segment ALBQA

**Solution:**

Area of minor segment APBQ=θ/360° x πr²-r²sin45°cos45°

=3.14 x 100/4-100 x 1/√2 x 1/√2

=(78.5-50)cm²=28.5 cm²

Area of major segment ALBQA =πr²-area of minor segment

=3.14 x (10)²-28.5

=(314-28.5)cm²=285.5 cm²
