Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ238

Three semi-circles and a right-angled triangle ABC lie inside Figure EFGH. Triangle ABC has a perimeter of 48 cm. If AC = 20cm, BC = 12cm, find

(a) the length of AB

(b) the area of Figure EFGH

(c) the area of the Pink shaded figure ( take  π = 3.14)

Solution:

            AB = 48 – 20 – 12 = 16 cm

            By extending the right-angle triangle ABC to a rectangle as blue dotted lines shown

            You can reduce that J, K and L are the centre points of the three semicircles respectively

            So,

            JA = JC = JM = JN = 20 ÷ 2 = 10 cm

            LA = LB = LO = JK = 16 ÷ 2 = 8 cm

            KC = KB = KP = JL = 12 ÷ 2 = 6 cm                       

            Length EF = 10 + 8 + 6 = 24 cm

            Breadth FG = 10 + 8 + 6 = 24 cm

            The area of EFGH = 24 × 24 = 576 cm2

            The area of semi-circle = 1/2 × π × r × r = 1.57 × r × r

            The area of the three semi-circles = 1.57 × (10 × 10 + 8 × 8 + × 6 × 6) = 314 cm2

            The area of Triangle ABC = ½ × 16 × 12 = 96 cm2

            The area of pink shaded figure = 576 – 314 – 96 = 166 cm2

            Note : EF = FG, EFGH is a square
