Hello. Can someone instruct me the way to solve this ? I only know that I need to find the radius to work out this but I don't know where to start.

Hello! I think I found the radius so can someone check whether it's correct or not

After finding the radius, do I have to find the area of the circle and then subtract the given area. After that, will I get the required area?
