Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you find the proportion of the total area by finding the angle ratio. Let a be the angle of the shaded area. Then the fraction of the total area that is shaded is a/360. So the area of the shaded region is \[(a/360)*\pi r^{2}\] in your case a=90 90/360=1/4 r=2 ( i think this is what you mean by a side saying 2) \[A=(1/4)\pi 2^{2}=\pi\]
