Sides of a right triangular field are 25 m, 24 m and 7m. At the three corners of the field, a cow, a buffalo and a horse are tied separately with ropes of 3.5 m each to graze in the field. Find the area of the field that cannot be grazed by these animals.

Question 33 Sides of a right triangular field are 25 m, 24 m and 7m. At the three corners of the field, a cow, a buffalo and a horse are tied separately with ropes of 3.5 m each to graze in the field. Find the area of the field that cannot be grazed by these animals.
Here, the animals graze area of sectors
Area of the field that cannot be grazed
= Area of Δ ABC
– Area of sectors grazed by all 3 animals
Area of Δ ABC
Δ ABC is a right angled triangle with
Base = 7 m
Height = 24 m
Area of Δ ABC = 1/2 × Base × Height
= 1/2 × 24 × 7 = 12 × 7 = 84 m2
Area of Sector grazed by all three animals
We know that
Area of sector = 𝜃/(360°) × πr2
And radius = 3.5 m
Area of Sector at point A = (∠𝐴)/(360°) × πr2
Area of Sector at point B = (∠𝐵)/(360°) × πr2
Area of Sector at point C = (∠𝐶)/(360°) × πr2
Therefore,
Area of sector grazed by all 3 animals
= (∠𝐴)/(360°) × πr2 + (∠𝐵)/(360°) × πr2 + (∠𝐶)/(360°) × πr2
= 1/(360°) × πr2 (∠ A + ∠ B + ∠ C)
Since sum of angles of a triangle = 180°
= 1/(360°) × πr2 × 180°
= 1/2 × πr2
Putting r = 3.5 m
= 1/2 × 22/7 × (3.5)2
= 11/7 × 3.5 × 3.5
= 11 × 0.5 × 3.5
= 19.25 m2
Hence,
Area of the field that cannot be grazed
= Area of Δ ABC – Area of sectors grazed by all 3 animals
= 84 – 19.25
= 64.75 m2
