find the area of one segment formed by a square with sides of 6" inscribed in a circle.

geometry 
MathMate,
Area of square = 6² in² = 36 in²
radius of circle
r = (1/2)square diagonal
= (1/2)√(6²+6²)
= (1/2)√(72)
= √(18)
Area of circle = πr²
= 18π
Area of one of the 4 sectments
= (Area of circle  area of square)/4
