Hi

Two circles, each of radius length 10 cm, have their centres 16 cm apart. Calculate the area common to each circle.

I've drawn a diagram:

I keep on getting 126.45 cm2 (2 d.p.) for my answer but the answers says 32.69 cm2. I simply divided the shaded area into two (they become congruent minor segments and then I simply found the area of one and multiplied it by two).

Could someone please show me how to do this question?
