You have to remember that the complete circle is 360°.

When they tell you that the sector is some percent of the circle, it's the same percent of 360° !


A sector is 40 percent of the circle. How many degrees is it ?

40 percent is the same as 0.40

Multiply (0.40 x 360°) and you get 144°. Is that cool ? !
