Q11:

The figure shows the steps to producing a curve 𝐢. It starts as the boundary of the unit square in Figure (a). In Figure (b), we remove a square quarter of the area of the square in (a). In Figure (c), we add a square quarter of the area that we removed in (b). In Figure (d), we remove a square quarter of the area of the square we added in (c). If we continue to do this indefinitely, we will get the curve 𝐢. We let 𝑅 be the region enclosed by 𝐢.

By summing a suitable series, find the area of region 𝑅. Give your answer as a fraction.
