A plot is in the form of a rectangle ABCD having semi-circle on BC as shown in Fig. 20.23. If AB = 60 m and BC = 28 m, Find the area of the plot.
Area of the plot = area of the rectangle + area of semi-circle
Radius of semi-circle =
Area of the rectagular plot = length × breadth = 60 × 28 = 1680 m2
Area of the semi-circular portion =
= = 308 m2
Therefore, the total area of the plot = 1680 + 308 = 1988 m2
