    A chord runs from circumference to circumference, as I'm sure you know. The bit of area between the chord and the circumference is called a segment. Again I'm sure you know. It's saying that that bit is 1/4 of the total area of the circle.

    Imagine drawing a radius from each end of the chord. You need to find the angle between the radii, in radians, not degrees.

    I think.

    I'm going to have to kindly request that if you post your problem on another thread, it's a little selfish of you to make a new thread for it, because you might make two different people answer you, which is a waste of effort on their part. Try sticking to either posting it in the existing thread or only creating a new thread - you could put a link from the existing thread to the new one, if you'd like.

    Sorry! I'm still getting used to it and thought I only had one and made a mess because I saw the existing post and thought it was a better idea to put it there rather than clutter up the rest ect. It wont happen again and thank you for the tip!
