-8pi/3

A sector of a circle has a central angle of 60°. Find the area of the sector if the radius of the circle is 3 mi.

So, these are: -8pi/3 -2pi/3, 4pi/3 ... and we have a winner!

60° is 1/6 of 360°. So, the are is 1/6 of a whole circle, or 1/6 * pi * 3^2 = 3/2 pi

**Reiny**, Saturday, March 17, 2012 at 2:00pmadd 2π to -8π/3

to get -2π/3

add another 2π to get

4π/3

check by taking sin, cos and tan of both -8π/3 and 4π/3.

you should get the same result for each trig function.

(in degrees we started with -480

added 720° to get 240° which lies between 0 and 360)
