**Q.1. Find the area of the shaded region in Figure, if PQ = 24 cm, PR = 7 cm and O is the centre of the circle.**

** **

**Ans:**

**Q.2. Find the area of the shaded region in Fig. 12.20, if radii of the two concentric circles with centre O are 7 cm and 14 cm respectively and ****∠**** AOC = 40°.**

**Ans: **

**Q.3. Find the area of the shaded region in Fig. 12.21, if ABCD is a square of side 14 cm and APD and BPC are semicircles.**

**Ans:**

**Q.4. Find the area of the shaded region in Figure, where a circular arc of radius 6 cm has ****been drawn with vertex O of an equilateral triangle OAB of side 12 cm as centre.**

**Ans:**

**Q.5. From each corner of a square of side 4 cm a quadrant of a circle of radius 1 cm is cut and also a circle of diameter 2 cm is cut as shown in Figure. Find the area of the remaining portion of the square.**

**Ans:**

Area of the remaining portion of the square

= Area of the Square (ABCD) – Area of two circles

=(Side)^{2} – 2×(πr^{2}) where, side = 4 cm and r = 1 cm

=(4)^{2} – 2 × $\frac{22}{7}$ × 1 × 1

=16 – $\frac{44}{7}$ = $\frac{122-44}{7}=\frac{88}{7}$ cm^{2}

**Q.6. In a circular table cover of radius 32 cm, a design is formed leaving an equilateral triangle ABC in the middle as shown in Fig. 12.24. Find the area of the design.**

**Ans:**

**Q.7. In Fig. 12.25, ABCD is a square of side 14 cm. With centers A, B, C and D, four circles are drawn such that each circle touch externally two of the remaining three circles. Find the area of the shaded region.**

** **

**Ans:**

Area of the shaded region

= Area of the Square (ABCD) – Area of one circle

= (Side)^{2} – πr^{2} where, side = 14 cm and r = 7 cm

= (14)^{2 }– $\frac{22}{7}$ x 7 x 7

=196 – 154 = 42 cm^{2}

Hence, Area of the shaded region is 42 cm^{2}

**Q.8. Fig. 12.26 depicts a racing track whose left and right ends are semicircular. **

** **

**The distance between the two inner parallel line segments is 60 m and they are each 106 m long. If the track is 10 m wide, find:**

**(i) the distance around the track along its inner edge**

**(ii) the area of the track.**

**Ans: **We have, OB=O’C = 30 m

And, AB = CD = 10 m

∴ OA = O’D = (30+10 )= 40 m

**Q.9. In Fig. 12.27, AB and CD are two diameters of a circle (with centre O) perpendicular to each other and OD is the diameter of the smaller circle. If OA = 7 cm, find the area of the shaded region.**

**Ans:**

**Q.10. 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) **

** **

**Ans:**

**Q.11. On a square handkerchief, nine circular designs each of radius 7 cm are made (see Fig. 12.29). Find the area of the remaining portion of the handkerchief.**

**Ans:**

**Ans:**

**Q.14. AB and CD are respectively arcs of two concentric circles of radii 21 cm and 7 cm and ****centre O (see Figure. If ****∠**** AOB = 30°, find the area of the shaded region.**

**Ans:**

**Q.15. In Fig. 12.33, ABC is a quadrant of a circle of radius 14 cm and a semicircle is drawn with BC as diameter. Find the area of the shaded region.**

**Ans: ****Let 14 cm be the radius of the quadrant with A as the centre.**

**Q.16. Calculate the area of the designed region in Fig. 12.34 common between the two quadrants of circles of radius 8 cm each.**

**Ans:**
