## Step by step guide to find arc length and sector area of circles

- To find a
**Area of a sector**\(=\color{blue}{πr^2 (\frac{θ}{360})}\)

\(r\) is the radius of the circle and \(θ\) is the central angle of the sector. - To find the arc of a sector of a circle
**,**use this formula:**Arc of a sector**\(=\color{blue}{(\frac{θ}{180})πr}\)

### Arc Length and Sector Area – Example 1:

Find the length of the arc. Round your answers to the nearest tenth. \((π=3.14), r=24\) \(cm\), \(\theta=60^\circ\)

**Solution:**

Use this formula: **length of a sector** \(=\color{blue}{(\frac{θ}{180})πr}\)

length of a sector \(=(\frac{θ}{180})πr\) \(=(\frac{60}{180})π(24)=(\frac{1}{3})π(24)=8×3.14 \cong 25.1 \) \(cm\)

### Arc Length and Sector Area – Example 2:

Find the area of the sector. \((π=3.14\)), \(r=6\) \(ft\), \(\theta=90^\circ\)

**Solution**:

Use this formula: **Area of a sector** \(=\color{blue}{πr^2 (\frac{θ}{360})}\)

Area of a sector \(=πr^2 (\frac{θ}{360})=(3.14)(6^2 )(\frac{90}{360})=(3.14)(36)(\frac{1}{4})=28.26 \)\(ft^2\)

### Arc Length and Sector Area – Example 3:

Find the length of the arc. Round your answers to the nearest tenth. \((π=3.14), r=28\) \(cm\), \(\theta=45^\circ\)

**Solution**:

Use this formula: **length of a sector ** \(=\color{blue}{(\frac{θ}{180})πr}\)

length of a sector \(=(\frac{θ}{180})πr\) \(=(\frac{45}{180})π(28)=(\frac{1}{4})π(28)=7×3.14 \cong 22\) \(cm\)

### Arc Length and Sector Area – Example 4:

Find the area of the sector. \((π=3.14), r=5 \) \(ft\), \(\theta=80^\circ\)

**Solution**:

Use this formula: **Area of a sector** \(=\color{blue}{πr^2 (\frac{θ}{360})}\)

Area of a sector \(=πr^2 (\frac{θ}{360})=(3.14)(5^2 )(\frac{80}{360})=(3.14)(25)(\frac{2}{9}) =17.44 \)\(ft^2\)
