1. for the area of the badge (part b), can i work out the area of a square OBAC then subtract the area of the sector OBC? So the area of the square is 64mm^2 and the area of the sector is 28.8mm^2. So the area of the badge is 35.2mm^2?

The method is sound, BUT OBAC is not a square, it's a rhombus.

Yes by working out the area of the two triangles that make up OBAC

Oh ... thankyou, so how can i find the area of the badge? Is the area of the rhombus still 8x8?

Sorted now, or do you still need the area of the rhombus?
