AB and CD are respectively arcs of two concentric circles of radii 21 cm and 7 cm and centre O (see Fig.) . If ∠AOB = 30°, find the area of the shaded region.

Ncert solution class 10 chapter 12-26


Radius of the larger circle, R = 21 cm

Radius of the smaller circle, r = 7 cm

Angle made by sectors of both concentric circles = 30°

 Area of shaded region=Area of sector AOB-Area of sector COD

=θ/(360°) πR2-θ/(360°) πr2

=θ/(360°) π[R2-r2]






The area of shaded region 102.66cm2
