hey <geniuskids>,

Following are my worked solutions:

Q3

Refer to attached solution.

=========

Q11

5 : 8

Area of Unshaded Semi-circle (S) : Area of Large Semi-circle (L)

S : L
4 : 9

(S / L) = (4 / 9)

Area S = (pi / 2) × r × r (where r=radius of S)
Area L = (pi / 2) × R × R (where R=radius of L)

(S / L) = (r × r) / (R × R) = (4 / 9)
(r / R) = [Square Root of (4 / 9)] = (2 / 3)

Hence, ratio r : R = 2 : 3

=========

Trust this helps.

Do let me know again if there are further clarifications.

Cheers,
Edward

Thank you Edward for the fast reply.

I understand Q3.

As for Q11, I don't understand the last second sentence. (r/R)={Square Root of (4/9)}=(2/3)

Why square root? And after that to assume its ratio 2:3???

Pls clarify.

Thank you
