I posted a problem "How Much Can a Goat Eat #2". Using a false assumption I calculated the overlapped area incorrectly. I request assistance in this regard. Please calculate the area of the green colored figure in this image. Thanks.

It looks like there are several ways to go about this, but this is my initial thought. First, we have \(AB = 3\sqrt{3}\). Thus \(\theta = \angle CAD = \cos^{-1}(\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}) - \frac{\pi}{6}\). The area of the green region will then be the area of sector \(CAF\) minus the area of \(\Delta CAD\). This comes out to

\((\frac{1}{2})(6^{2})\theta - (\frac{1}{2})(3)(6\sin(\theta)) = 18\theta - 9\sin(\theta)\).

This "simplifies" to

\(18\cos^{-1}(\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}) - 3\pi - (\frac{9}{8})\sqrt{3}(\sqrt{13} - 1)\),

which equals \(5.7115\) to \(4\) decimal places. – Brian Charlesworth · 2 years, 11 months ago

Area of the green = Area of the sector - Area of triangle ADC

Area of the green = (34.34.../360 * Pi * 6^2) - (1/2 * 6* 1.69..)

Area of the green = 10.788573 - 5.0770656 = 5.7115074

This amount was taken to the problem "How Much Can a Goat Eat #2" and a corrected answer was obtained. – Guiseppi Butel · 2 years, 11 months ago

it can be solved by using integration in a very easy manner .just shift the whole diagram on a xy plane and do the integration by writing the equation . – Shubham Kumar Sah Sah · 2 years, 10 months ago
