How to colour an arc of a circle between two nodes

mitmit shared this question 7 months ago

I am new to geogebra, so I apologise if this has an simple solution.

I have the circle as below

df8e62407600d8f5ea1b907be7276a8c

I am trying to colour the arc between the nodes x and y, and also between w and z.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to do this? I seem to only be able to colour the whole circle. I have tried to draw a new arc on top but I seem to have little control over the curvature so it doesn't lie on top of the arcs in the picture above.

You can do this with a Locus. 1. define a triangle BCD, lets say f. 2. create a circular arc between C and D with center A (let's say g). 3. Define a point P= Point({f, g}). 4. Define a point PP = P. 4. Create Locus (PP,P) to create the filling of the area. You can proceed the same way for the other area.
