The blog postings are about the Singapore Math. The readers can learn from the postings about Solving Singapore Primary School Mathematics. The blog presents the Math Concept, the Math Questions with solutions that teaches in Singapore Primary Schools. You or the kids can acquire the skill of dealing with the Math Modeling, the Math Problem Solving and the Problem Sum from Lower Primary School to Upper Primary School level after reading the blog postings. This posting is an upper primary school math question on __Shapes__, __aerimeter__ and Area.

You can read posting **Sarin learns Perimeter, Area and Volume in school (Math Concept) **to learn the concept of volume.

*Challenge yourself with the question before look out for the given solution!!!*

**Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ583**

The figure is made of 2 identical circles of diameter 14 cm. Find the area of the yellow region. (take π = 3.14)

Solution:

Area of the rectangle = 14 × 28 = 392 cm^{2}

Area of the two circles = 2 × π × 7 × 7 = 307.72 cm^{2}

The differences = 392 – 307.72 = 84.28 cm^{2}

The yellow region is of the differences

= 84.28 ÷ 4

= __21.07__ cm^{2}

Alternative solution:

The area of the blue square = 7 × 7 = 49 cm^{2}

The area of the quadrant = × × 7 × 7 = 38.465 cm^{2}

The difference = 49 – 38.465 = 10.535 cm^{2}

The area of yellow region = 2 × 10.535 = __21.07__ cm^{2}
