Given in the problem,
Area of the sector= 2π
Also given, r= 4
so, Area of the circle= πr^2
= 16π

We know that.
Area of a given sector= sector angle/360(Area of circle)


So,
Area of sector= x/360(16π)
or, 2π = x/360(16π)
0r, x = 360x2/16 = 45 degress.

Hence, C is the ANSWER




Thanks in advance for the Kudos I will receive.. :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

Using proportions to solve this question : x/360 = 2 pi /2pi4^2 = 2pi/32pi.

Solving for x, we get x=22.5°

Answer is option A.

Highlighted part should be \(pi*4^2\)
and this will result in x = 45°

Given;

\(C^{\circ} = x^{\circ}\) ------------(\(C^{\circ}\) is the Central Angle)

Area of Sector \(= 2\pi\)

Radius \(= 4\)

Area of Sector \(= \pi(r^2)\frac{C^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}}\) ------------(\(C^{\circ}\) is the Central Angle, \(r\) is the radius)

\(2\pi = \pi(4^2) \frac{x}{360}\)

\(x^{\circ} = \frac{2*360}{16} = 45^{\circ}\)

Answer (C)...

easy C.

2*pi/16*pi = 1/8

so x = (1/8) * 360 = 45

If a circle has area A, then the area of a sector of x degrees in the circle is x/360 * A. Since the radius is 4, the area of the circle is πr^2 = 16π.

We can create the following equation and determine x:

(x/360)(16π) = 2π

16x/360 = 2

2x/45 = 2

2x = 90

x = 45

Answer: C
