## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have no idea what to do with the first one.

For the 2nd one the area of the rosette inside the triangle should be the area of 3 segments minus the area of the triangle.

Here's a picture of what I did, with one circle only:

This is what I got: [tex] \frac{a^2}{6}(2 \pi - \frac{3 \sqrt {3} }{2}) [/tex]

But the book says it's [tex] \frac{a^2}{6}(2 \pi - 3 \sqrt {3} ) [/tex], so can anyone check it?
