Test 3 Section 4 #34

Remember that circle problems are often ratio problems, and this is definitely one of those cases. Generally, we can say that \dfrac{A_{\text{sector}}}{A_{\text{circle}}}=\dfrac{\text{central angle measure}}{360^\circ\text{ or }2\pi}.

Since we’re given the central angle in radians and no other information, we just need to figure out the ratio of the central angle to 2\pi.


You can either grid in that fraction or its decimal equivalent: .625.
