# How to fill an annulus (region bounded by two concentric circles)?

How to color with green color the domain bounded by a circle of radius 1.5 and the circle of radius 3.5 ?

How to color with yellow color the domain bounded by a circle of radius 3.5 and the circle of radius 5 ?

It is much better if you also provide us with the screenshot of your output so we don't need to compile your code in our mind. – kiss my armpit Sep 4 '14 at 18:56

Sorry. The center at origin (0,0) can be omitted for \pscircle, \psellipse, \pswedge, \psellipticwedge, \psellipticarc, \psellipticarcn and \psRing but not for \psarc and \psarcn. I don't know why. It looks like a bug for \psarc and \psarcn. – kiss my armpit Sep 4 '14 at 19:41

@Herbert Cyanide-based food Sorry for the late reply. I learn with you, thank you. – Fabrice Sep 5 '14 at 16:44

I am trying to make your code much simpler but still beautiful.

\documentclass[pstricks,border=12pt,12pt]{standalone}
\usepackage{pst-plot}
\psset
{
arrowscale=1.3,
ticks=none,
labels=none,
}
\begin{document}
\begin{pspicture}(-6,-6)(9,7)
\psgrid[subgriddiv=1,gridlabels=0,gridcolor=lightgray!50](-6,-6)(9,7)
\psaxes[linewidth=1pt]{->}(0,0)(-6,-6)(9,7)
\psset{fillstyle=solid,opacity=0.5}
\psRing[fillcolor=green]{3.5}{5}
\psRing[fillcolor=yellow]{1.5}{3.5}
\pscircle[fillcolor=blue]{1.5}
\psframe[fillcolor=blue](6,1)(7,2)
\psframe[fillcolor=green](6,3)(7,4)
\psframe[fillcolor=yellow](6,5)(7,6)
\uput[r](7,5.5){5 points}
\uput[r](7,3.5){10 points}
\uput[r](7,1.5){20 points}
\uput[-135](0,0){$O$}
\psxTick(1){I}
\psyTick(1){J}
\end{pspicture}
\end{document}


## Bonus

If you don't like the simpleness of \psRing to increase the number of used keystrokes, you can make use of \pscustom[fillstyle=eofill]{...} instead as follows.

\documentclass[pstricks,border=12pt,12pt]{standalone}
\usepackage{pst-plot}
\psset
{
arrowscale=1.3,
algebraic=true,
ticks=none,
labels=none,
}
\begin{document}
\begin{pspicture}(-6,-6)(9,7)
\psgrid[subgriddiv=1,gridlabels=0,gridcolor=lightgray!50](-6,-6)(9,7)
\psaxes[linewidth=1pt]{->}(0,0)(-6,-6)(9,7)
\psset{fillstyle=solid,opacity=0.5}
\pscustom[fillcolor=green,fillstyle=eofill]{\pscircle{3.5}\pscircle{5}}
\pscustom[fillcolor=yellow,fillstyle=eofill]{\pscircle{1.5}\pscircle{3.5}}
\pscircle[fillcolor=blue]{1.5}
\psframe[fillcolor=blue](6,1)(7,2)
\psframe[fillcolor=green](6,3)(7,4)
\psframe[fillcolor=yellow](6,5)(7,6)
\uput[r](7,5.5){5 points}
\uput[r](7,3.5){10 points}
\uput[r](7,1.5){20 points}
\uput[-135](0,0){$O$}
\psxTick(1){I}
\psyTick(1){J}
\end{pspicture}
\end{document}

How do you feel about keystrokes? :) – cmhughes Sep 4 '14 at 21:22
@cmhughes: I don't like verbosity in TikZ. :-) – kiss my armpit Sep 5 '14 at 2:18

This one is for @cyanide-based food (A tikz answer for pstricks question ;-)...)

\documentclass[border=3mm]{standalone}
\usepackage{tikz}

\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\foreach \col/\x/\y in {blue/0/1.5,green/1.5/3.5,yellow/3.5/5}{
\draw[fill=\col,fill opacity=0.5,even odd rule] (0,0) circle (\x cm) circle (\y cm);
}
\draw[help lines] (-6,-6) grid (9,7);
\draw[thick,->] (-6,0) -- (9,0);
\draw[thick,->] (0,-6) --  (0,7);
\draw (0.2,1) -- (-0.2,1)node[anchor=east]{$J$};
\draw (1,0.2) -- (1,-0.2)node[anchor=north]{$I$};
\node[anchor=north east] at (0,0) {$O$};
\foreach \col/\x/\y\p in {blue/6.5/1.5/20,green/6.5/3.5/10,yellow/6.5/5.5/5}{

}

\end{tikzpicture}

I prefer PSTricks, but the simplicity of your code makes me want to learn as TikZ, but without abandoning PSTricks. – Fabrice Sep 6 '14 at 10:09
@Fabrice tikz is more user friendly IMO. But some times pstricks is more powerful. And this answer is just for fun. :-) – Harish Kumar Sep 6 '14 at 10:11
What is the meaning of "IMO" (I'm French)? – Fabrice Sep 7 '14 at 10:25
@fabrice In My Opinion! – Harish Kumar Sep 7 '14 at 11:12
