Recently, the following math problem was posed to me:
What that chicken scratch above shows is a problem I have not yet been able to solve. By what formula can one determine the area of the space in between three circles of the exact same size touching each other in the arrangement shown above?
The area in the middle isn't a straight edged triangle, it's a three sided space with each side having a curve that somehow relates to the diameter of each circle, I think.
I'm going to keep thinking about this. If anyone has any thoughts on the subject or could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.
