#1**+1 **

There are 360 degrees in a circle and the area of a whole circle is \(\pi*r^2\)

so

are of a sector is the fraction of the circle that you have.

i.e. \(\frac{sector\; angle \; }{360}\)

multiplied by the are of the whole circle.

------

which is

\(\text{Area of sector }=\frac{sector\;angle\;in\;degrees}{360}\times \pi r^2 \qquad units^2 \)
