What’s the approximate area of a segment of a circle with a height 6 m and the length of the chord is 20 m? Round your answer to the nearest whole number. A. 746.67 m2

Hello!

The Correct Answer to this would be 100%:

Option “85.4”.

(Work Below)

Given:
height = 6m
chord = 20 m

We need to find the radius of the circle.

20 m = 2 √ [ 6m( 2 x radius – 6 m ) ] 
20 m / 2 = 2 √[ 6m( 2 x radius – 6 m ) ] / 2 
10 m = √ [ 6m( 2 x radius – 6 m ) ] 
(10 m)² = √[ 6m( 2 x radius – 6 m ) ] ² 
100 m² = 6 m( 2 x radius – 6 m ) 
100 m² = 12 m x radius – 36 sq m 
100 m² + 36 m² = 12 m x radius – 36 m² + 36 m² 
136 m² = 12 m x radius 
136 m² / 12 m = 12 m x radius / 12 m 
11.333 m = radius 

the area beneath an arc: 

Area = r² x arc cosine [ ( r – h ) / r ] – ( r – h ) x √( 2 x r x h – h² ). 

r² = (11.333 m)² = 128.444 m² 
r – h= 11.333 m – 6 m = 5.333 m 
r * h = 11.333 m x 6 m = 68 m²

Area = 128.444 m² x arc cosine [ 5.333 m / 11.333 m ] – 5.333 m x √[ 2 x 68 m² – 36 m² ] 

Area = 128.444 m² x arc cosine [ 0.4706 ] – 5.333 m x √ [ 100m² ] 

Area = 128.444 m² x 1.0808 radians – 5.333 m x 10 m 

Area = 138.828 m² – 53.333 m² 

Area = 85.4 m²

Hope this Helps! Have A Wonderful Day! 🙂

And as Always…
