**The figure below is made up of a big circle, square and a small circle. The area of the square is 400 square cm. Find the area of the shaded region. (Correct your answer to 2 decimal places)**

**Solution**

Area of square --> 400 square cm

Length of square --> 20 cm (square root of 400 sq cm)

Length of square --> 20 cm (square root of 400 sq cm)

Area of 1/4 square

--> 400 square cm divided by 4

= 100 square cm

Area of one right-angle triangle -->(1/2)(b)(h)

100 square cm = (1/2)(r)(r)

(r)(r) = (100 square cm) x 2 = 200 square cm

Area of circle = (3.14)(r)(r)

=(3.14)(200 square cm)

= 628 square cm

Shaded area -->(628 - 400) square cm

= 228 square cm

= 228.00 square cm (correct to 2 decimal places)

= 228.00 square cm (correct to 2 decimal places)

**Answer: 228.00 square cm**
