two circles touching int. at A , area of shaded region = 5500 cm2

MN=7 cm

Find sum of radii .

the fig is two circles

one big and one small touching each other internally

the shadded region is the remaining part of bigger circle

By data the two are  is touching internally. The area of theregion between the bigger and smaller circle is 5500 cm^2. The distance between the centres  of the circles is 7cm.

Therefore the distance between the centres of the circles = r2-r1, the difference of the radii of the outer and inner circles.

So r2-r1 = 7...(1)

Also the difference in areas of the outer and inner circles = pr2^2-pir1^2 which is 5500 cm^2 by data.

=> pir2^2-pir1^2 = 5500..(2).

Therefore  from two we get (r^2^2-r1^2) =  5500 /pi = 1750.70.

=> r2^2-r1^2 = 1750.70.

=> (r1+r1)(r2-r1) = 1750.70.....(3).

 From  r1-r1 = 7. We substitute r1-r1 = 7 in (3) and get:e( r2+r1)*7 = 1750.7044.

=> r2+r1 = 1750.70/7 = 250.1006....(4).

(1)+(2): 2r2 = 7+250.1006. So r2 = 257.1006/2 = 128.5503 cm

(1) - (2): 2r1 = 250.1006-7 = 243.1006. So r1 = 243.1006/2 121.5503 cm.

Therefore the  radius r2 of the outer circle  is r2 = 121.5503 cm

The radius of the inner circle is r1 = 121.5503 cm.
