*A triangle has side lengths of 10, 24, and 26. Let a be the area of the circumcircle, and let b be the area of the triangle. Compute a - b in terms of pi.*

**Hint:** Recognize that a 10, 24, 26 triangle is a right triangle, so the right angle subtends half of the circle, or in other words the hypotenuse is a diameter of that circle. Will that get you going?
