# From a rectangular metal sheet of side 30 cm and 40cm a circular sheet as big as possible is cut off. Find the area of the remaining sheet.

We form our diagram , As :

So,
Diameter of circular sheet  =  30 cm , So radius of circular sheet  =  15 cm

Area of remaining sheet  =  Area of rectangular sheet  -  Circular sheet

Area of remaining sheet  =  Length  $×$ Breadth  -

Area of remaining sheet  =  40 $×$ 30   -

Area of remaining sheet  = 1200 - $\frac{4950}{7}$

Area of remaining sheet  = 1200 - 707.14

Area of remaining sheet  = 492.86 cm2                             ( Ans )
