The shaded area of the figure may be found by subtracting the area of the unshaded portion from the total area of the figure. Use this approach to find the area of the shaded region. Use 3.14 as an approximation for

piπ. A circle with a diameter of 38 meters is inscribed inside a square.38 m (a circle within a  square)

The area of the shaded region is approximately _______

m cubed .m3.

m squared .m2.

m.m.

Notice that the side length of the square is  38 m.

area of square  =  (side length)2  =  (38 m)2   =   1444 m2

Notice that the diameter of the circle is  38 m .

And its radius  =  diameter / 2   =   38m / 2   =   19 m

area of circle  =  pi * radius2  =  pi * (19m)2  =  pi * 361 m2   ≈   1133.54 m2

So......

area of shaded region  =  area of square - area of circle

area of shaded region  ≈       1444 m2     -  1133.54 m2

area of shaded region  ≈    310.46 m2
