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.

The "Subtends an angle of theta" bit

The "Subtends an angle of theta" bit
forms an angle
6. 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!
