let R= radius of circle F, diameter AB

ReplyDeleter=radius of circle G, diameter CD

Denote Area(X,Y)= area of circle center X, radius Y

Note that Triangle AFO congrurence to tri. OGC (case SAS)

so OA^2=OC^2= R^2+r^2

Blue area= Area(O,OA)- white area

Yellow area= Area(F,R)+ Area(G,r)-White area

But Area(O,OA)=pi*(R^2+r^2)=Area(F,R)+Area(G,r)

so Blue area=white Area

Clarifications of above solution from Peter Tran:

ReplyDeletePosition of O on segment FG is determined by equation:

OA^2=R^2+r^2=OC^2=(R+r-x)^2+r^2

x=r

Peter Tran

Let W,B,Y denote the areas shaded white, blue and yellow respectively.

ReplyDeleteW+B=Π.OA²=Π[R²+(R–d)²]

W+B=Π.OC²=Π[r²+(r + d)²]

∴R²–r²+(R–d)²–(r+d)² = 0

2(R²–r²)–2d(R+r) = 0

d=R–r,R=r+d

W+B=Π[r²+(r+d)²]=Π(R²+r²)=W+Y

Hence B=Y

Please refer to my solution for Problem 708:

ReplyDeleted denotes distance OE.

Peter, that is the way i was trying to solve the problem, but i couldn't prove that the two triangles are congruent. And i didn't i understand how you proved this Congruence.

ReplyDeletePravin's solution seems to me correct.

Once you prove that d=R-r you can easily prove the Congruence of the triangles, but the proof you gave is more direct, so we don't need to prove the Congruence finally.

P.S. We can see that angles AOC and AEC are right. (if we move the point O on the segment FG we will not find any other right angle.)

sorry for my english!!!

FO=r per my clarification above and FG=R+r so OG=R

triangle FAO congruence to tri. GOC ( case SAS)
