Size:  27.2 KBfor 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
