Let's side of equilateral triangle=a
ans radius of circle=R=1
Radius of the circumscribed circle is R=a/root of 3
1=a/root of 3
a=root of 3=1.732...................................................................(i)
Area of equilateral triangle=A=(root of 3/4)*a^2
Area of circle=C=(pi/4)*d^2=(3.142/4)*(2)^2=3.142
Area of shaded portion=C-A=3.142-1.299=1.843
ans is 1.843

But you make a = square root of 3 = (1.732).   why? when in fact is 1.75

Area of the blue region = Area of the circle - Area of the triangle
Area of the blue region = π - 3*√3/4 = 1,84
