Area = 1/2 . (BO*BO)*(<BOA); <BOA is angle in radian , so,

Good question , one will use sine rule to find the hypotenuse, then use pythagorus to find the adjacent= radius of the circle. Then use the formula of finding the area of the sector.

Triangle AOB is right angled at B since AB is a tangent, therefore angle BOA = 70 deg ~= 1.222 rad

Well, the angle at teh top left of the shaded area is 70 degrees, so that shaded area is 7/36 times the area of the circle. The radius of the circle is 9 tan(20 degrees) so its area is 81 pi times tan^2(20 degrees), which makes the area of the shaded area

I think you slipped up on the last step. You should have got 63/4 (=7*81/36) - the same as Ahmad, not 28/9.

Ouch! 7*81/36 is right, I seem to have gone mad and chosen to use 7*36/81

And on top of that, I was measuring in degees instead of degrees. Must have been too much red wine at lunch.

The shaded area represents a sector so the area of a sector. To do so first we need to find the central angle which is 90 _20=79 therfore , area of a sector is (70÷360) times the area of the circle . To find the radius we will use tan 20 = r/9 then r=9tan20 ...the final answer will be (70/360)times pi times the square of 9tan 20.

You all lose a mark for omission of units.
