    Are the shaded areas made from intersecting quarter circles?

    Hello, Mhmh96!

    You should have supplied more information.
    Even if your diagram were symmetric, we're not sure what the figure is.

    I'll assume that "Prove It" was correct . . . These are quarter-circles.

    Code:
                  * * *           * * *
              *           *   *           *
            *               *               *
           *               *:*               *
                           :::
          *               *:::*               *
          *               *:::*               *
          *               *:::*               *
                 .*.*.*.   :::   .*.*.*.
           *  *:::::::::::**:**:::::::::::*  *
            *:::::::::::::::*:::::::::::::::*
           *  *:::::::::::**:**:::::::::::*  *
                  * * *    :::    * * *
          *               *:::*               *
          *               *:::*               *
          *               *:::*               *
                           :::
           *               *:*               *
            *               *               *
              *           *   *           *
                  * * *           * * *
    Your diagram says the length of two "petals" is 4 units.
    Then the radius of the circles is \sqrt{2}.

    I'll let you work out the details.

    I get an answer of 4(\pi - 2)

    Yes quarter-circles,but how did you find the radius ?

    Hello, Mhmh96!

    How did you find the radius?

    Code:
                  * * *
              *           *
            *               *
           *                 *
                              
          *         C         *
          *         o         *
          *    r  *   *  r    *
                *.*.*.*.*
           *  *:::::::::::*  *
          A o - - - - - - - o B
           *  *:::: 2 ::::*
                  * * *           
          *                   *
          *                   *
          *                   *
    
           *                 *
            *               *
              *           *
                  * * *
    Chord AB is 2 units long.

    Triangle ABC is an isosceles right triangle.

    Hence, its legs (the radius) is: \frac{2}{\sqrt{2}} \,=\,\sqrt{2}
