    a full circle has a central angle of 2pi pi/6 = 2pi/12 so you have 1/12 of the full area

    pi/6 is not the area of your circle, that is the measure of the central angle that they are trying to determine

    the question states: "A circle has an area of 36π in2. ...." so what is the area of the circle?

    at the moment, this has nothing to do with math; it is simply reading comprehension. If you are not able to even read the question correctly, then there is reallyno hope of being able to deduce a suitable answer for it.

    Okayy . The area of the circle is 3636π in2 right ?

    36 pi ; yes and we want 1/12 of that for the sector what is 36/12?

    very good; therefore we can say that the area of the sector is 3pi in2, which is one of the options
