A complete circle is 360o     we want the area of a   300/360 fraction of the complete circle

 

Area = pi r^2

        = 300/360  * pi * 112 === ...........   mi 2

Not sure about this, but first, find the area of the circle (121 pi). Then, because it is a 300 degree arc, the part you want to find is 5/6 of the circle. This would then be (121 pi)(5/6), which would be easy to solve.
