Divide the area of the sector by 360 and multiply it to the area. The area of the sector is 5 square inches.

For a circle where sector measures 10 degrees and the diameter of the circle is 12: Sector area = 3.142 square units.

if a circle has a radius of 12cm and a sector defined by a 120 degree arc what is the area of the sector

It is a sector of the circle

A segment or a sector are both regions in a circle.

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.

sector

That would certainly do it.

Divide the area of the sector by 360 and multiply it to the area. The area of the sector is 5 square inches.

Multiply ( pi R2 ) by [ (angle included in the sector) / 360 ].

Multiply ( pi R2 ) by [ (angle included in the sector) / 360 ].

Sector

Divide the angle sector by 360 and multiply it by 24 square meters. The area is equal to 3 square meters.

For A+ it's 20

It is found by: (sector area/entire circle area) times 360 in degrees
