Shaded region of the figure

Given that The total area of the regions that are inside the circle and outside the square is equal to the total area of the regions that are outside the circle and inside the square

Let the region within the circle and square be \(x\) i.e In other words, it is the area inside the circle and the square .

Let r be the radius of the circle

Therefore, The area of the circle -x=Area of the square - x

so, \(\pi r^2 - x=4-x\)

\(\Rightarrow \pi r^2=4\)

\(\Rightarrow r^2 = \frac{4}{\pi}\)

\(\Rightarrow r=\frac{2}{\sqrt \pi}\)
