The circle is divided into 3 regions- a semicircle of area pR2/2, the region whose area is sought, and, a region of a circle of radius R, bounded by ,a chord whose mid point is R/2 from the centre, and the smaller arc of the circle. Consider a chord whose midpoint is between R/2 and R away from the centre. Call this distance ‘r’. It is easy to see that the area of this region is equal to a = . Let r = Rcosq. a = 2R2 sin2(theta)d(theta). sin2(theta) = (1-cos2(theta))/2

Thus a =   R2((p/3) – ( /4)). So the area which the problem asks is

pR2/2 - R2((p/3) – ( /4)) = R2((p/6) +( /4))
