Question In the diagram OCA and ODB are radii of a circle with centre O and radius cm. Angle adians. CD and AB are arcs of circles with centre O and radii cm and cm respectively. The  perimeter of the shaded region ABDC is 4.4r cm.

i.       Find the value of .

ii.       It is given that the area of the shaded region is 30 cm2. Find the value of .

Solution

i.

It is evident from the diagram that; We are given that;  Now we find lengths of arcs AB and CD.

Expression for length of a circular arc with radius and angle rad is; Therefore, for length of arc CD;  Hence; Next, for length of arc AB;  Hence; Finally;        ii.

It is evident from the diagram that; We are given that;   Now we find areas of sectors AOB and COD.

Expression for area of a circular sector with radius and angle rad is; Therefore, for area of sector COD;  Hence; Next, for area of sector AOB;  Hence; Finally;     We have found in (i) that ;
