## ayuna123 3 years ago A circle has an area of 36π in2. What is the area of a sector of the circle that has a central angle of π 6 ? A) 3 in2 B) 6 in2 C) 12 in2 D) 196 in2

• This Question is Open
1. amistre64

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

2. ayuna123

Thats Not One Of My Answer Choices :/

3. amistre64

what is the area of you entire circle?

4. ayuna123

π over 6

5. amistre64

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

6. ayuna123

The question doesnt say the area & theres no picture or diagram

7. amistre64

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

8. ayuna123

i dont know . i dont know how to do any of this stuff . i dont kno anything about areas, tangents, etc nothing ,

9. amistre64

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 ?

11. amistre64

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

12. ayuna123

3

13. amistre64

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

ohhhhhh ! Thanks : ) Sorry for the hard time lol

'sok :) good luck
