Problem
The shaded region below is called a shark's fin falcata, a figure studied by Leonardo da Vinci. It is bounded by the portion of the circle of radius and center that lies in the first quadrant, the portion of the circle with radius and center that lies in the first quadrant, and the line segment from to . What is the area of the shark's fin falcata?
Solution
The area of the shark's fin falcata is just the area of the quarter-circle minus the area of the semicircle. The quarter-circle has radius so it has area . The semicircle has radius so it has area . Thus, the shaded area is
