Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ358

The figure below is made up of a semicircle with centre O, squares, trapeziums and an equilateral triangle ABC. Given that AD = DB = 11.75 cm and ∠ ABE = 135°,

            (a) find the total shaded area of two blue squares.

            (Correct your answer to 2 decimal places)

            (b) find the total perimeter of the purple shaded regions.

            (Correct your answer to 2 decimal places)

UPQ358-1

Solution:

UPQ358-2

                        Line DO // Line BE // Line AF and ∠ 1350

                        ∠ OTS = 450  and ∠ OTG = 1350

                        OT // AB and OT is the radius of the semi-circle

                        OT = DB = 11.75 cm

                        Similarly

                        OS = 11.75cm

                        Line OS is perpendicular to Line OT

                        The area of the two blue squares = 11.75 × 11.75 ≈ 138.06 cm2

                        The perimeter of the purple shaded regoions = 11.75 × 4 + π × 11.75 ≈ 83.91 cm
