Problem of the Day #161: Potato Chip Geometry August 27, 2011

Posted by Seungln in : potd , trackback

SeungIn has an interesting potato chip, the shape of which can be described as a union of a circle with radius $.00002$ miles and a circle with radius $.12$ feet, with $10$ square inches of overlap. If an inch is $2.54$ centimeters, then the area of the chip can be expressed as $x$ meters squared. Find $x$.
