Your problem look simple but not as simple as it is solved than seen . It catches my interest.

I hope you are still here ti witness.

Area of the field = 12 x 24

Area of the field = 288 ft²

Refer to Figure: http://www.flickr.com/photos/27678773@N06/81909279...

Sin EOb = bE / Ob

Sin EOb = 12/2 /10

Sin EOb = 0.6 Ft

∢EOb = 36.87°

Cos EOb = OE / Ob

OE = Ob Cos EOb

OE = 10 (0.8)

OE = 8 Ft

EF = OE x 2

EF = 16 Ft

Area Sector ArcabOa = 1/2R²(EQb x 2)

Area Sector ArcabOa = ½(10)²(36.87 x 2) x π/180

Area Sector ArcabOa = 64.35 ft²

At the Opposite Side

Area Sector ArcabOa = Area Sector ArccdOc = 64.35 ft²

Area Δ aOG = 1/2aG(OG)

Note → aG = OE = 8 ← refer to figure

note → OG = Ea = bE = 12/2 ← refer to figure

Area Δ aOG = ½(8)(6)

Area Δ aOG = 24 ft²

Area Δ aOG = Area Δ dOG = 24 Ft²

Area Δ aOd = Area Δ aOG + Area Δ dOG

Area Δ aOd = 24 + 24

Area Δ aOd = 48 ft²

The Oppodite Side Area Δ bOc = Area Δ aOd = 48 ft²

Graze Land Area = Area Sector ArcabOa + Area Sector ArcccOc + Area Δ aOd + Area Δ bOc

Graze Land Area = 64.35 + 64.35 + 48 + 48

Graze Land Area = 224.7 ft²

The Percentage of Grazing Area = 224.7 / 288

=============================================

The Percentage of Grazing Area = 78.02 % ◄ Ans

=============================================

Hope this helps

Remember that Jesus loves you. Know Him in His words the Bible.

God Bless
