What you posted does not make sense.

Have look at this webpage. It may help you.

The yellow area is the area of the minor segment of the circle. - Jun 15th 2013, 12:13 PMMINOANMANRe: A chord related question
I believe the student was trying to say that the central angle of the cord is 90 degrees and he asks for area of the small sector not segment...

wich is of course (1/4 )π(14)^2 =154...

we have to be more patient with people...... whose English is not the native language.....................
