A circle has a radius of cm. Determine, to the nearest hundredth, the area of the segment whose angle equals
The formula gives the area, , of a circular segment, where is the radius of the circle, and is the measure of the angle of the segment. Given that the measure of the angle of a circular segment is , and the radius of the segment's circle is , solve for as follows:
Thus, the area of the segment to the nearest hundredth of a square centimetre is .
