Problem
Circles and each have radius 1. Circles and share one point of tangency. Circle has a point of tangency with the midpoint of What is the area inside circle but outside circle and circle
Solution 1
The requested area is the area of minus the area shared between circles , and .
Let be the midpoint of and be the other intersection of circles and .
Then area shared between , and is of the regions between arc and line , which is (considering the arc on circle ) a quarter of the circle minus :
(We can assume this because is 90 degrees, since is a square, due the application of the tangent chord theorem at point )
So the area of the small region is
The requested area is area of circle minus 4 of this area:
.
Solution 2
We can move the area above the part of the circle above the segment down, and similarly for the other side. Then, we have a square, whose diagonal is , so the area is then just .
