# Find the Area of the Sector Whose Arc Length and Radius Are 8 Cm and 3 Cm Respectively. - Geometry

Sum

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 = 8/3radians

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

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