      Is this C2 or GCSE Maths?
      In radians or in degrees?

      EDIT: <POQ is apparently 36 degrees.

      This should help:

        Then your formula would be:



        2nd question - use the sine rule

        3rd question - area of sector SUBTRACT area of triangle (so answer 1 minus answer 2)
