Question:
how do you find the area of the shape created by the intersection of two congruent vesicas with lengths intersecting at 90 degrees?



Replies:
You will have to do some trigonometry/geometry depending upon the exact shape of your figure, which I could not picture from your verbal description, but the pertinent formulas you can find at: http://www.intent.com/sg/vesica_area.html
