**BD= diameter of the circle**

As
shown in the diagram and the question, the square is inscribed inside the
circle and we are supposed to find the area of the shaded blue region that
doesn’t include the area of the square.

** Step 1: **Find the area of the square

Area=
Length × width

=
7×7

= 49 cm²

** Step 2: **Find the diameter of the circle

In
order to calculate the area of a circle, we need the measurement of the radius.
However, before calculating the radius, we will need to find the diameter,
which will aid us in finding the value of the radius and the area of the
circle.

Since,
we know that the shape inside the circle is a square, which has equal sides of
7cm, so we will be using the Pythagoras Theorem to find the length of the
diagonal. The length of the diagonal will be equal to the diameter because the
diameter is represented by the distance between two points on the circumference
that passes through the centre of the circle, which is given by the length of
BD as shown in the diagram above.

Pythagoras Theorem:

In our
case, height = BC = 7 cm and base = DC = 7 cm.
Now substitute these values in the pythagoras theorem formula to find
the value of the hypotenuse, which is BD.

BC²
+ CD² = BD²

(7)²
+ (7)² = BD²

49 +
49 = BD²

√98 = BD

9.899 cm = BD ⇒ Diameter of the circle

** Step 3:** Find the radius

In
order to calculate the radius, we will be using the diameter. The formula for
the diameter is:

Radius
= Diameter ÷ 2

= 9.899 ÷ 2

= 4.949 cm

** Step 4: **Find the area of the circle

Area
of the circle= πr²

= π × (4.949)²

= 76.67 cm²

** Step 5: **Find the area of the shaded region

Area
of the shaded region = Area of the circle - Area of the square

= 76.67 - 49

=
27.66 cm² ≃ 28 cm²
