Find the area of the shaded region formed by the intersection of four semicircles in a square

Given the length of the side of a square a, the task is to find the area of the shaded region formed by the intersection of four semicircles in a square as shown in the image below:

Examples:

Input: a = 10
Output: 57

Input: a = 19
Output: 205.77



Approach: Area of the shaded region will be:

Area(semicircle1) + Area(semicircle2) + Area(semicircle3) + Area(semicircle4) – Area(square).

Since all semicircles are of same radius, therefore, area of all semicircles will be equal. So, the above formula can be written as:
4*(Area of Semicircle) – Area(Square)

The area of a semicircle is (3.14 * r2) / 2 where r is the radius of the semicircle which is equal to a / 2.

Hence, Area of the shaded region = 4 * (3.14 * (a * a) / 8 ) – a * a

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

    // Area of the semicircle
    float semiCircleArea = (3.14 * (a * a) / 8);
  
    // There are 4 semicircles
    // shadedArea = Area of 4 semicircles - Area of square
    float ShadedArea = 4 * semiCircleArea - sqArea;
  
    return ShadedArea;
}
  
// Driver code
int main()
{
    float a = 10;
    cout << findAreaShaded(a);
  
    return 0;
