Question 1 Report
A sector of a circle of radius 9cm subtends angle 120° at the centre of the circle. Find the area of the sector to the nearest cm\(^2\) [Take π = 22/7]
To find the area of a sector, we need to use the formula: Area of sector = (θ/360) x πr² where θ is the angle subtended at the centre of the circle, r is the radius of the circle, and π is a mathematical constant approximately equal to 22/7. In this case, the radius is given as 9cm and the angle is given as 120°. So, substituting these values into the formula, we get: Area of sector = (120/360) x (22/7) x 9² = (1/3) x (22/7) x 81 = 754/7 ≈ 107.71 cm² (rounded to the nearest cm²) Therefore, the correct answer is: 85 cm² (option C).
