Given:

OACB is a quadrant of a circle with centre O and radius 3.5 cm.

$OD = 2\ cm$

To do:

We have to find the area of the shaded region.

Solution:

$OD = 2\ cm$

$OB = 3.5\ cm$

Therefore,

Area of the triangle $\mathrm{OBD}=\frac{1}{2} \times \mathrm{OB} \times \mathrm{OD}$

$=\frac{1}{2} \times 3.5 \times 2$

$=3.5 \mathrm{~cm}^{2}$

Area of the shaded region $=$ Area of the quadrant $-$ Area of the triangle $\mathrm{OBD}$

$=\frac{77}{8}-\frac{35}{10}$

$=\frac{77}{8}-\frac{7}{2}$

$=\frac{77-28}{8}$

$=\frac{49}{8} \mathrm{~cm}^{2}$

**The area of the shaded region is $\frac{49}{8} \mathrm{~cm}^{2}$.**
