    area= r^2(theta) ; where theta is expressed in the radian form. .

    (5.1/2)² *190 * pi/ 360 = 10.8 =

    @chlorophyyll. i think it's not pi/360, but, pi/180.

    I check the other sources, it says 1/2 of pi/180 --> pi/260

    Oh, okay. That clears it up, thanks. I had my answer written down, but I wasn't sure if I was doing it right. c:

    in changing degrees to radian it pattern the formula. degree ( pi/180 deg). trigonometry fact.

    Don't be confused between arc length and area sector!

    I check multi sources all the times, because I'm confused and very absent minded :(
