# Lunes of Hippocrates

Calculate the sum of the area of the so-called Hippocratic lunas, which were cut above the legs of a right triangle (a = 6cm, b = 8cm). Instructions: First, calculate the area of the semicircles above all sides of the ABC triangle. Compare the sum of the areas of the lunas with the area of the triangle ABC.
