Find the area of one segment formed by a square with sides of 6" inscribed in a circle.

I'm not exactly sure what this is asking.....if it is asking for the area between one side of the square and the perimeter of the circle, we can proceed as follows :

To find the radius  of the circle  we have that

2r^2  = 36   divide both sides by 2

r^2  = 18

r = √18

So....the area we are looking for is the area of a quarter circle with a radius of √18 minus the area of an isosceles right triangle with legs of √18  and a hypotenuse of 6

So....the area is

pi (r^2) /4    -   (1/2) (product of leg lengths)  =

pi (√18)^2 / 4  - (1/2)(√18)(√18)  =

18 ( pi /4  - 1/2)   units^2   Sep 13, 2019

This is my HINT for the last question:

Find the area of the triangle

Find the area of the pizza sections (non-shaded)

The angles of a equilateral triangle are always 60 degrees.

That means one of the pizza sections is 1/6 of an entire circle/

Now I will leave the rest up to you.

A regular hexagon with sides of 3" is inscribed in a circle. Find the area of a segment formed by a side of the hexagon and the circle.

The circle will also have a radius of 3

The area of the circle will  be  pi (3)^2  =  9 pi units^2       (1)

The area of the hexagon  =    6 (1/4) (3)^2 * √3  =  27√3/4  units^2      (2)

So....the area  we want   is just 1/6 of  (1)  - (2)  =

[ 9pi - 27√3/4 ] / 6  =

[ 36 pi - 27√3] / 24  =

[ 12pi - 9√3] / 8      units^2  =

(3/8) [ 4pi - 3√3 ] units ^2   Sep 13, 2019

You do have a gift, Travisio. You’ve actually found something you are worse at than math and German: Poetry.

That is very kind geust

...but not to burst your bobble that was my first atempt to poety and it does not rhyme like i wanted...

For the last problem  the area of the unshaded portion of the equilateral triangle   is just the area of  a half circle with a radius of 3  =   (1/2)pi * 3^2  =  (9/2)pi  units^2

[ To see this.....each of the congruent unshaded sections is just the area of a 60° sector of a circle with a radius of 3 ]

So  we have    pi  (3)^2  ( 180/360)  =  (1/2) pi * (3)^2  =  (9/2)pi units^2

And the area of the equilateral triangle  =  (1/2) (6)^2 √3 / 2   =  9√3  units ^2

[9√3  -  (9/2) pi] units^2 =

9 [ √3 - pi/2 ] units^2   Sep 13, 2019
