Here is the questions that I am stuck on,

1. Point Y lies on line segment $$\overline{XZ}$$ such that XY = 2 and YZ = 4. Semicircles are constructed with diameters $$\overline{XY}, \overline{XZ}$$, and $$\overline{YZ}$$. Find the area of the blue region.

I dont even know how or where to start.

2. A sector of a circle has a central angle of 100$$^\circ$$. If the area of the sector is 250 $$\pi$$, what is the radius of the circle?

I try to put my thoughts and ideas into words because I want to learn, but what I tried has no matamatical words.

If someone could help me with these two questions that would be great,

1. The area of the shaded region is 4*pi.

2. The radius of the circle is 25.

1.   The distance XZ = XY + YZ = 6, so the radius of the largest semicircle is 3. Hence its area is (1/2)pi32 or A1 = 9pi/2.

The area of the next largest semicircle is A2 = (1/2)pi22 or A2 = 2pi

The area of the smallest semicircle is A3 = (1/2)pi12  or A3 = pi/2

Hence the area of the shaded region = A1 - A2 - A3 = 9pi/2 - 2pi - pi/2 = 2pi

1)

The area for a circle is πr^2.

Thus the large circle is π((2+4)/2)^2 /2 = 9π/2.

The smaller ones are 1π/2 = π/2 and 4π/2 = 2π. Thus we have 9π/2 - π/2 - 2π = 4π-2π = 2π. as the area of blue.

2)

The formula for circle are is πr^2. You have 100/360 = 50/180 = 5/18 part of the area.

5/18 * πr^2 = 250π

5πr^2/ 18 = 250 π

5r^2/18 = 250

5r^2  = 250 * 18

r^2 =250*18/5 = 50*18 = 900

r = 30

If you don't understand anything feel free to ask!

2. Area of circle A = pi.r2    Area of circle/Area of segment = A/250pi.  But this must equal 360/100.

I'll leave you to take it from here.

I see hugo... has already done it!
