In the given figure, a square OABC is inscribed in a quadrant OPBQ. If OA = 20 cm, find the area of the shaded region. [Use π = 3.14]

In ΔOAB,

OB2 = OA2 + AB2

= (20)2 + (20)2

Radius (r) of circle

Area of quadrant OPBQ

Area of OABC = (Side)2 = (20)2 = 400 cm2

Area of shaded region = Area of quadrant OPBQ − Area of OABC

= (628 − 400) cm2

= 228 cm2
