# Mamikon's Method for the Area of the Cycloid

The area under the curve traced by a point at the end of the diameter of a circle with radius 1—a cycloid—is determined using only geometric concepts.

### DETAILS

In 1959, Mamikon Mnatsakanian, usually known as Mamikon, devised an original method for solving problems in geometry. His method is described in .
In this Demonstration, an example is presented based on work by Ujjwal Rane , where the area of the cycloid is obtained without recourse to the methods of calculus.
