Angle AGD has a cosine of 3/5 and angle GED has a cosine of 3/5. I found these values with the cosine rule. 1. Calculate the area of the kite ADEG and from that subtract the area of circular sector ADG. 2. Calculate the area of circular sector EDG and from that subtract the result of step 1 and that gives you the shaded area.
