1. It is given that OAB is an equilateral triangle having each angle as 60°

Area of the sector is common in both.

Radius of the circle = 6 cm.

Side of the triangle = 12 cm.

Area of the equilateral triangle = (√3/4) (OA)2= (√3/40×12= 36√3 cm2

Area of the circle = πR2 = (22/7)×6= 792/7 cm2

Area of the sector making angle 60° = (60°/360°) ×πrcm2

= (1/6)×(22/7)× 6cm= 132/7 cm2

Area of the shaded region = Area of the equilateral triangle + Area of the circle – Area of the sector

= 36√3 cm2 +792/7 cm2-132/7 cm2

= (36√3+660/7) cm2
