The area of an equilateral triangle ABC is 17320.5 cm2. With each vertex of the triangle as centre, a circle is drawn with radius equal to half the length of the side of the triangle (see Fig. 12.28). Find the area of the shaded region. (Use π = 3.14 and \( \sqrt{3}\) = 1.73205)

Solution :-

ABC is an equilateral triangle.

∠ A = ∠ B = ∠ C = 60°

There are three sectors each making 60°.

Area of ΔABC = 17320.5 cm2

⇒ \(\dfrac{\sqrt{3}}{4} \) ×(side)2 = 17320.5

⇒ (side)2 = \( 17320.5×\dfrac{4}{1.73205} \)

⇒ (side)2 = 4×104

⇒ side = 200 cm

Radius of the circles = \( \dfrac{ 200}{2} \) cm = 100 cm

Area of the sector = (\(\dfrac{ 60°}{360°} \))×πrcm2

= \(\dfrac{1}{6}\)×3.14×(100)cm2

= \(\dfrac{ 15700}{3} \)cm2

Area of 3 sectors = 3×\( \dfrac{ 15700}{3} \) = 15700 cm2

Thus, area of the shaded region 

= Area of equilateral triangle ABC – Area of 3 sectors

= 17320.5-15700 cm= 1620.5 cm2
