**(a) In the figure given below ABCD is a square of side 14 cm. A, B, C and D are centres of the equal circle which touch externally in pairs. Find the area of the shaded region.**

**(b) In the figure (ii) given below, the boundary of the shaded region in the given diagram consists of three semi circular arcs, the smaller being equal. If the diameter of the larger one is 10 cm, calculate.**

**(i) the length of the boundary.**

**(ii) the area of the shaded region. (Take π to be 3.14)**

**Solution:**
