The sector of a circle with a 12-inch radius has a central angle measure of 60°.
What is the exact area of the sector in terms of π ?
A WHOLE circle is 360 degrees....we need to find the fraction 60 degrees/360 degrees
Area of whole circle = pi r^2 = pi 12^2
the fraction of this whole circle (60 degrees worth): 60 /360 * pi 12^2 = 24 pi
