# To find the area of a sector do you multiply the area of the circle by the measure of the arc determined by the sector?

No. Assuming the measure of the arc is in some units of length along the curve, you have to divide the result by the circumference of the circle.

Basically, you need to multiply the area of the whole circle by the fraction of the whole circle that the sector accounts for.
