    If may not be AQA but that doesn't mean it's any less important or valuable.
    The thing about maths is we're all equal, regardless of the exam board the maths remains the same.

    That's why i think you should help me

    Consider the unshaded region: ABO

    Drawing a line from O to B gives a sector AOB : find the area of this in the normal way.

    Spoiler:

    Straight lines from A to B to O give a triangle AOB. What are the angles in this triangle?


    You're left with a region (segment) enclosed by line OB and arc OB. Draw a line from A to B and notice that this segment is the area of another sector minus the area of the triangle AOB.

    AO = AB = r, as they are both radii of the circle with centre A.
    OB = OC r, as it is the radius of circle centre O.
    Therefore, AOB = equliateral traingle.
    Similarly, COD = equilateral triangle.
    Therefore, angle DOC = 60 and BOA = 60.
    Therefore angle BOC = 60 (angles on straight line sum to 180)

    OB = OC. Therefore, angle BCO and CBO = 60.

    Therefore BOC = equilateral triangle, side length of r.

    Area of full circle centre O = (r^2)pi
    Area of sector AOB = Area of sector COD = 1/6 (r^2)pi
    Therefore, shaded area = 1/2(r^2)pi -2/6 (r^2)pi= 1/6 (r^2)pi

    Where have I gone wrong? :/

    Consider the line OC, this gives a sector of the circle, you can work out this area easily. You're then left with the segment of arc OC and line OC. Then draw the line OD, notice you have an equilateral triangle OCD. You can work out this area, and then the area of the segment from this, etc... repeat similarly for AOB!

    EDIT: Beaten to it by two people! Gosh I should I typed quicker

    Firstly, AB=r is incorrect.

    EDIT: Ignore this. I made a mistake!

    I think you're assuming that unshaded region ABO is a sector when it isn't. A sector is enlosed by one arc and two radii. This region is enclosed by one radius and two arcs.

    Maybe for you but it is supposed to be one of the harder C2 questions being that it is on a Soloman paper.

    But OB is the arc of circle radius r centre A, so AB is a radius = r?

    It's unusual but I wouldn't say it's hard. It could be a question in a GCSE textbook.
