To find the area of a segment, we subtract the area of a triangle from the area of a sector. I understand this, but when i try this i get a certain answer, and the answer i am supposed to give should be written as: \[A=(__\pi_√_)inches^2\]

The area of the segment = \[\frac{ 1 }{ 6 } * \pi * 3^{2}  \frac{ \sqrt{3} }{ 4 } * 3 ^{2} \]
