Dear Student,
The triangle shown in between is an equilateral triangle with side length 6cm. and having each interior angle as 60degree.
Area of shaded portion = area of triangle (use the formula for equilateral triangle case) – area of 3 sectiors of the triangle (use the area of sector formula here).
I hope you will be able to solve now.
Thanks.
