# A chord of a circle of radius 10 cm subtends a right angle at the centre. Find the area of the corresponding major segment.

**Given: **

A chord of a circle of radius $10\ cm$ subtends a right angle at the center.

**To do: **

We have to find the area of the corresponding major sector.

**Solution:**

As the radius of the circle$=OA=OB=10\ cm$

Angle subtended by the chord $=\angle AOB=\theta=90^{\circ}$

Area of the major sector$=$ Area of the circle$-$Area of the minor sector

$=\pi r^2-\frac{\pi\theta}{360^{\circ}}\times OA\times OB$

$=3.14\times10\times10-3.14\times\frac{90^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}}\times10\times10$

$=314-78.5$

$=235.5\ cm^2$

Therefore, the area of the major sector is $235.5\ cm^2$.
