Problem K. 195. (January 2009)

K. 195. The isosceles triangle ABC has a right angle at A; the length of its legs is AB=AC=4 cm. The circles with centers at B and C of radius 4 cm intersect the hypotenuse at D and E, respectively. What is the area of the shaded domain? (See the Figure.)

Sorry, the solution is available only in Hungarian. Google translation

Megoldás. A satírozott területet jelölje T. Ezen kívül keletkezik még két egybevágó alakzat, ezek területe felírható: t=t_{\triangle}-\frac{45}{360}\cdot4^2\pi=\frac{4\cdot4}{2}-2\pi=8-2\pi.

Így a terület:

T=t_{\triangle}-2t=8-2(8-2\pi)=4\pi-8\approx 4,5664.
