Re: Final question of the day !. Circles !

Yes ,

The area formula for circles pi R squared

Which was, 4pi for each

You would then need to work out the area of the semicircle then subtract area of 2 circles from semicircle,

But how would you work out the area of the semicircle ?

Re: Final question of the day !. Circles !

What I meant was, we need to know the diameter (or radius) of the semi-circle.

Hint: Consider the right half of the diagram only. Now, draw a radius of the semi-circle through the center of the smaller circle. Use the Pythagorean theorem to determine the radius of the semi-circle. What do you find?

Re: Final question of the day !. Circles !

Not much !

I presume the radius of the semicircle is the hypotenuse
but how would I find out the lengths of the other 2 sides ???

Consider the diagram:

[attachment=0:1b13qg7k]circleswithinsemicircle.jpg[/attachment:1b13qg7k]

So, what must the radius of the semicircle be?

For those who can't view the diagram, the shaded area is presumably the area that is within the semicircle but not within the two smaller circles that the semicircle encloses. The preceding post shows half of the diagram, thereby showing how the smaller circles are positioned within the semicircle.
