Geometry | Odd Area

Shapes are aplenty in this planet. We are sometimes asked to find their parameters using concept of geometry. Geometry deals with angles, areas and perimeters.

A bit of creativity is good, if you want less steps in solving or getting the odd-shaped area.

Do not despair though, since any method will be fine as long as the answer can be obtained with understanding.

Here, I post a question that requires a bit of creativity to handle it.


Find the area of the flipped back portion of the circle surface, with the flipped back tip touching the centre of the circle. The dimensions are given in diagram 1.

Diagram 1

I will present the answer in the next post. Happy solving!

:-) Maths Is Interesting! Have your fun!
