To find the area of the circle, we need to determine the radius.

First, let's find the central angle subtended by the chord. The central angle is ( \frac{\pi}{6} - \frac{\pi}{8} = \frac{\pi}{24} ) radians.

Now, using the formula for the length of a chord in terms of the radius and central angle, which is ( 2r \sin(\frac{\theta}{2}) ), where ( r ) is the radius and ( \theta ) is the central angle, we can solve for the radius.

Given that the length of the chord is 3 and the central angle is ( \frac{\pi}{24} ), we have:

[ 3 = 2r \sin\left(\frac{\frac{\pi}{24}}{2}\right) ]

[ 3 = 2r \sin\left(\frac{\pi}{48}\right) ]

[ r = \frac{3}{2\sin\left(\frac{\pi}{48}\right)} ]

Now, we can use the formula for the area of a circle, ( A = \pi r^2 ), to find the area:

[ A = \pi \left(\frac{3}{2\sin\left(\frac{\pi}{48}\right)}\right)^2 ]
