 # Areas of Sectors and Segments

In this worksheet, students calculate the areas of sectors and segments. Key stage:  KS 4

Curriculum topic:  Geometry and Measures

Curriculum subtopic:  Calculate Arc Lengths, Angles and Areas of Sectors of Circles

Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

Remember the following formulae:

Area of sector = x r2 x /360

Area of triangle = ½ a b  sinC

We use these formulae to find the area of a segment.

Example If R = 20 cm and = 60º,

the area of the sector = x 20 x 20 x 60 ÷ 360 = 209.44

the area of the triangle = ½ x 20 x 20 x sin 60º = 173.21

So the area of the segment = 209.44 - 173.21 = 36.23 cm2

Give all answers to 2 decimal places in this worksheet. Calculate the area of the sector.
