Draw points A and B at the 2 intersection points of the circle.

The circular sector $$ABP$$ has an area of $${144 \over 4} \pi = 36 \pi$$

The isoceles triangle has area $$12 \times 12 \div 2 = 72$$

This means that the area of half the sector is $$36 \pi - 72$$. Multiply this by 2, and we find the circular sector has an area of $$\color{brown}\boxed{72 \pi - 144}$$
