# Find the area of the shaded region in Fig 9.51

**Solution:**

Given

Diameter of the complete circle = 14 cm

We know that

__Radius__ = 14/2 = 7 cm

Here

__Area of the complete circle__ = πr²

Substituting the values

= 22/7 × 7 × 7

= 154 cm²

It is given that

Diameter of small circle = 7/4 cm

Radius = 7/(4 × 2) = 7/8 cm

Here

Area of two small circles = 2 × πr²

Substituting the values

= 2 × 22/7 × 7/8 × 7/8

= 77/16 = 4.8 cm²

We know that

Area of shaded region = Area of complete circle - Area of two small circles

Substituting the values

= 154 - 4.8

149.2 cm²

Therefore, the area of the shaded region is 149.2 cm².
