Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ223

The figure below has shown an octagon fit exactly into a circle. The area of the circle is 616cm2. Assume the value π = 22/7, to find the area of the orange shapes.

 

Solution:

 

 

 

 

 

 

                        The area of the circle = π × r × r = 616 cm2

                        r × r = 616 × 7/22 = 196 = 14 × 14

                        The radius of the circle, r = 14cm

                        Subdivided the octagon with dotted lines shown

                        The area of the green triangle = ¼ fraction of the square with green dotted outline

                        The area of the square with green dotted outline = 4 × ½ × 14 × 14 = 392 cm2

                        L × L = 392

                        The length of the square with green dotted outline = 19.80 cm

                        The ¼ fraction of the octagon = Sum of the area of the green triangle and blue triangle

                        The area of the octagon = 4 × 14 × 19.8 ÷ 2 = 554.4 cm2

                        The area of the orange shapes = 616 – 554.4 = 61.6 cm2
