Intersecting Circles

I would like to know how to solve this problem.

There are two circles, \(A\) and \(B\), drawn on a number plane such that Circle \(A\)'s diameter is on the x-axis on points \((0, 0)\) and \((40, 0)\) and Circle \(B\)'s diameter is on the y-axis on points \((0, 0)\) and \((0, 40)\). What is the area of the intersecting regions of the circle?

Hint: add the areas of two quarter circles, then subtract your overcounting.
