    I double checked it and I am always getting (128pi)/9 or 44.68

    Area of sector = pi*r^2 * theta/360°

    Sub in values: pi*8^2 * 80/360 = 128pi/9

    maybe the book has a typo Isn't it that Area of sector = (1/2) (r^2) (theta) theta is in radians

    \[Area = \frac{1}{2} \times 64 \times 80 \times \frac{\pi}{180} \implies 44.65\]

    @waterineyes I think it should be 44.68 ? :)

    Actually it can be: \[Area = 44.698\]

    As value of \(\pi\) is not exact so you cannot say about the exact value..

    Surely your book is carrying something wrong for this question.. You are right @moongazer
