1. Area of the semi-circle = 9.8125 square units

Solution:

Given ABC is a right triangle.

BC is a semi-circle.

∠BAC = 90°.

AB = 3 units and AC = 4 units.

BC is the hypotenuse of the right triangle ABC.

Using Pythagoras theorem,

In right triangle, square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.   Take square root on both sides.

BC = 5 units

The diameter of the semi-circle is 5 units.

Radius = 5 ÷ 2 = 2.5 units

Area of the semi-circle =  = 9.8125 square units

Area of the semi-circle = 9.8125 square units
