Hint:  divide the area into an equilateral triangle and three congruent segments.

Area of 3 segments if the radius is 1        A3segments = ( r2pi - 3√3 / 2 ) / 2            r = a = 1

                                                                             

Red area                                    A = (√3 / 4) ( r2pi - 3√3 / 2 ) / 2  wink
