A horse is tied to a post by a rope, 8m long at one corner of a rectangular field. What area of the field can the horse graze?

solution pls... tnx...

    Draw yourself a picture. The horse can cover a circular area of pi*R^2. But at the corner of a rectangular field (with width longer than the rope), only one-quarter of the circle will be in the field.

    The rope of horse =14m long
    Therefore, radius of circle=14m
    Area of quadrant=1/4¡Á¦Ðrsquare =154m square
