let the radius be r

then the area of one of the sectors would simply be 1/4 of the area of the circle,

which would be (1/4)πr^2 or πr^2/4

if the sides are each 6 of the square then how would you find the segment?

The 6 is the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle with the other sides as the radius

r^2 + r^2 = 36

r^2 = 18

r = √18

sector = (1/4)π(√18)^2 = 9π/2
