Question 37 Given below is the picture of the Olympic rings made by taking five congruent circles of radius 1cm each, intersecting in such a way that the chord formed by joining the point of intersection of two circles is also of length 1cm. Total area of all the dotted regions assuming the thickness of the rings to be negligible is (a) 4 (π/12ββ3/4) cm2 (b) (π/6ββ3/4) cm2 (c) 4 (π/6ββ3/4) cm2 (d) 8 (π/6ββ3/4) cm2
Letβs consider only one circle
In Ξ OAB, all sides are equal
β΄ Ξ OAB is an equilateral triangle
So, all angles are 60Β°
Area of red shaded region
= Area of sector with angle 60Β° and radius 1 cm
β Area of equilateral triangle with side 1 cm
= ΞΈ/(360Β° ) Γ πr2 β β3/4 π^2
= (ππΒ° )/(πππΒ° ) Γ π (1)2 β βπ/π (1)2
= ( π/(π ) β βπ/π ) cm2
Now,
Required Area = 8 Γ Area of red portion
= 8 Γ ( π/(π ) β βπ/π ) cm2
So, the correct answer is (d)
