Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ172
Hairu decided to have his card in the shape of a quarter circle and slot in a rectangle envelope as the figure shown below. The card was made of 2 quadrants and a rectangle. Using the calculator value of π, find the area of the pink shaded part. Correct your answer to 2 decimal places.
The area of the big quadrant = ¼ × π × 16 × 16 = 64π
The area of the small quadrant = ¼ × π × 6 × 6 = 9π
The area of the rectangle = 16 × 6 = 96
The area of the pink shaded part = 64π + 9π – 96 = 133.34 cm2
