Can someone help me determine how to find expressions for the Areas A and B (with respect to theta)? I understand how to find the area of triangle POR but I'm having trouble see how to find the area of A.

I understand how to find the area of triangle POR but I'm having trouble see how to find the area of A. Im presuming that this is from a segment of a circle So then use the equation for Area of a triangle and divide it by two to get an expression for B in terms of As for A i cant remember my C2 too well, but im sure you use the formula along the lines of
Total area of sector - area of triangle POR. Remember a scetor is theta/360 of a circle (if theta is in degrees)
