If $A_1 = \{(x,y)\,|\, x^2+y^2 \le 100 , \sin(x+y) > 0\}$ and $A_2 = \{(x,y) \,|\, x^2+y^2 \le 100: \sin(x+y) < 0\}$, then a rotation through $\pi$ about the origin maps $A_1$ onto $A_2$, and vice versa. Thus $A_1$ and $A_2$ have the same area. The sets are disjoint, and their union is the interior of the circle (with $9$ lines removed), and so the area of each is $\tfrac12 \times 10^2\pi = 50\pi$.

What does this statement mean: "then a rotation through $π$ about the origin maps $A_1$ onto $A_2$, and vice versa."? Can you please post a link which explains this?

The point $(x,y)$ belongs to $A_1$ if and only if the point $(-x,-y)$ belongs to $A_2$. Changing the sign of both $x$ and $y$ is achieved by a rotation about the origin through $\pi$ (or successive reflections in the $x$- and $y$-axes, or an enlargement scale factor $-1$ through the origin). However you describe this transformation of the plane $\mathbb{R}^2$, it preserves areas, so that $A_1$ and $A_2$ have the same area.

area of x^2+y^2 is 100π.sin(x+y)>0 which implies 0>x+y>2π.....like that split the parts in which sin(x+y)>0if you see the graph it form a symetry and if you fold the circle you can see common region is 50π.

Hello Mark!

What does this statement mean: "then a rotation through $π$ about the origin maps $A_1$ onto $A_2$, and vice versa."? Can you please post a link which explains this?

Thanks!
