Joint the ends of the chord with the center of the circle. You will get an equilateral triangle.

So the required area = area of sector with angle 60 - area of equilateral triangle.

= $$\frac{60}{360} * pie * 6* 6 -$$ $${\sqrt{3}}$$$$/4 *6*6$$

= $$6*pie - \sqrt{3}*9$$
Hence E

From A and B draw line segments to the center of the circle O

triangle ABC is equilateral triangle sides 6,6,6. Hence angel at the center angel AOB = 60 deg

area of sector = (60/360) pi 36 = 9pi

area of equilateral triangle = (3^2/4) (side)^2 = 6* 3^(1/2)

hence difference between area of sector and area of triangle = 6* 3^(1/2) - 9pi.

Is the solution.

Area = pi * (6)^2/6 - root(3)/4 * 36

= 6pi - 9root(3)

Answer - E
