# Common area of circles

```I want to calculate areas.
like for two circles (0, 0) and (0, 1) : the output is '1.228370'

similarly my aim is to take 'n' co-ordinates, all of radius '1' and
calculate the area common to all.
The best I got was monte-carlo methods which is inefficient. Is there any
other approach possible.
