# Finding the area of a part of two internally touching circles [duplicate]

Two circles touch each other internally at point A as shown in the figure: (http://imgur.com/hmzgMCT) O is the centre of bigger circle. If CB = 9 cm and DE = 5 cm. Find the area of the crescent shaped part of the figure. Take the value of pi as 22/7

Assume the radius is R and r, so $2R-2r=CB=\frac{9}{2}$, and $$CD^2=OC^2+OD^2=(R-5)^2+(R-9)^2$$ $$AD^2=OA^2+OD^2=R^2+(R-5)^2$$ $$CD^2+AD^2=4r^2$$ which gives $$R^2+2(R-5)^2+(R-9)^2=4(R-\frac{9}{2})^2$$ and R=25 is found. Then use $R=25$, $r=\frac{41}{2}$ so that $$A=\frac{22}{7}\times \frac{819}{4}=643.5$$ hope it can help
