#### Question

Find the area of the sector whose arc length and radius are 8 cm and 3 cm respectively.

#### Solution

Length of arc, S = 8 cm

Radius of circle, r = 3 cm

S = rθ ⇒ θ = S/r = 8/3 radians

`8/3"radians"=180/pixx8/3=(480/pi)@`

`"Area of the sector "=theta/360xxpir^2=480/(360xxpi)xxpir^2=4/3xx9=12"cm"^2`

Is there an error in this question or solution?
