# 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 * r ^{2}) / 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:
