Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ261

The figure belows is making up of one circle of diameter 8cm, two identical semicircles of diameter 4 cm and an isocelete triangle. Find the area of coloured part.








            Partition the figure to half as the dotted line shown

            Both upper and lower parts of the figure are identical

            Work on base on one part

            When use the semicircle of 8cm diameter substract the triangle of 8cm by 4cm give you the orange part and unwanted yellow part as above





            By adding the semicircle of radius 4cm to figure 1and left with the orange portion

            Two times the orange portion give the area of the coloured part.

            The area of the big semicircle = 4 × 4 × π ÷ 2 = 8π

            The area of the small semicircle = 4 × π ÷ 2 = 2π

            The area of the top half triangle = 8 × 4 ÷ 2 = 16

            The area of half of the orange figure = 8π + 2π – 16 =10π – 16 = 15.4cm2

            The area of the orange figure = 2 × 15.4 = 30.80cm2
