## anonymous 5 years ago Can someone check this please.. The area of a circle is 540 inches squared, what is the area of the sector if its central angle measures 50 degrees. A = 13, 500 inches squared ???

Area of a sector is proportional to the central angle so, the fraction of the area equals the fraction of the central angles in the same order. $A/540=50/360$ $A=540\times50/360$ $=75$ 75 square inches
