hi Maou-Sama

You can use trig on triangle OAC to get OA and AC. Leave your answers with root 3 when it comes up rather than an approximate decimal.

From that you can get the area of the triangle and the rectangle.

Then the sector by pi/3 times r squared / 2 and subtract.

Looks like you'll have to use cos and sin in this problem.
