So far, for number 14 I believe the area of the circle is 12pi. I just don't know how to solve the additional information. For number 15, I'm completely lost. Please help. Last edited by skipjack; December 13th, 2018 at 08:33 PM.

If so, what grade are you in? 14: area is pi * r^2 = pi * 6^2 = pi * 36 15: what is the area of the right triangle in top right quadrant? Last edited by skipjack; December 13th, 2018 at 08:34 PM.

You (or someone using the same username) posted these same questions on another site earlier today, showed your work, which I checked and found you were correct.

Then write down what you can work out, even if it seems unnecessary or irrelevant. What formula do you know for calculating the area of a triangle? Is there a corresponding formula for the area of a sector of a circle?

In each question there is a large fraction of a circle touching a triangle. You can find the area of both of these. For 15, you can also find the area of the entire circle from which you subtract the parts you don't need.
