Desperate to solve this

Radius is 10 cm, <APB = 60° and I have to find PA, PB and AB. I've tried a lot of stuff but always ended up in a dead end. I know that the answer is (300√3 - 100π)/3. I somehow always ended up with answer - 100π, I'm probably missing a simple thing, but I've been trying to solve this for 2-3 hrs by now.

AB = 10√3.
Area of quadrilateral OAPB = 100√3.
Area of sector OAB = 100$\pi$/3.
Their difference is 100√3 - 100$\pi$/3.
