We have to find the area of the sector AOB formed by the chord AB. 

We have  `OA=4 cm and AB=4 cm. So,`

`AL=(AB)/2 cm` 

`= 4/2 cm` 

`= 2 cm` 

Let ∠AOB=2θ. then, 



In ΔOLA, We have

`sin θ=(AL)/(OA)`

`= 2/4`


`θ = sin^-1  1/2` 

`= 30°`

Hence,  `∠AOB=60°`

Now, using the value of`∠AOB`  and r we will find the area of sector AOB,

`A=θ/(360°) xx pir^2` 

=` (60°)/(360°)xx pixx4xx4 cm^2`

`=(8pi)/3 cm^2`


  Is there an error in this question or solution?
