please help me i don't understand this problem

  • geometry -

    Without seeing the diagram, not enough info.

    You would have to give a description that would allow for the tutor to understand where exactly this cord is, among other things.

    Could you solve this problem if all you knew was the info you posted? Think about that when posting a problem.

    And, you can't find the area of a segment.
