# What is the area of the shaded part of the circle?

In the diagram below, line segment $AT$ is a diameter of the circle with center $O$. What is the area of the shaded part of the circle?

$AT= 16$.

Half of the circles area is equal to $100.48$, on the other half of the circle there is a triangle spitting it up, The triangle is a right triangle with interior angle measures of $30, 60$, and $90$. There is one side known and that side is the diameter which is equal to $16$, it is the hypotenuse of the triangle.

What diagram? You likely cannot post graphics here yet. –  Ron Gordon May 29 '13 at 21:14
Nope can't post pictures. But you can see it here: assets.openstudy.com/updates/attachments/… –  Matthew May 29 '13 at 21:23

Sides of a 30-60-90 triangle of hypotenuse $16$ are $8$ and $8 \sqrt{3}$. The area of that triangle is then $(1/2) (8)(8 \sqrt{3}) = 32 \sqrt{3}$. The shaded area is then the area of the circle minus the area of that triangle, or $64 \pi - 32 \sqrt{3}$.
