# Find the area of the shaded region in Fig 9.50

**Solution:**

Consider r as the __radius__ of smaller circle and R as the radius of bigger circle

From the figure, we can see,

r = 7/2 = 3.5 cm

R = 7/2 + 7 = 21/2 = 10.5 cm

We know that

Area of shaded region = Area of bigger circle - Area of smaller circle

= πR² - πr²

Taking π as common

= π (R² - r²)

Substituting the values

= π[(10.5)² - (3.5)²]

By further calculation

= π (110.25 - 12.25)

So we get

= 22/7 × 98

= 308 cm²

Therefore, the area of the shaded region is 308 cm².
