Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0following so far, its converting the Sin(5π/6) into an exact ratio that gets me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dont need to convert sin; it just theta/2 r^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the total area of a circle is 2pi/2 r^2 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no this is a minor segment :/ need to use the A=(1/2)r^2(@Sin@) (where @ = theta and in radians)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes but i need to use the above formula to figure out and converting the Sin part to exact ratios confuses the hell out of me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you take a 30 degree angle and look across it at the 1 and to the hyp of 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes; which has a reference angle of 30 degrees
