I am trying to work out the area of the shaded part of the diagram. I've figured that If I was to work out the area of the triangle (27cm) and take it away from the sector, I'd have the area of the shaded bit.

I'm guessing that I'd have to use trigonometory to find the area of the sector, I really have no idea how to do this, and would appreciate some help. Thankyou
