Formula to calculate area of sector, angle of sector and length of arc

$$\frac{Angle at arc}{360}$$ = $$\frac{area of sector}{area of circle}$$ = $$\frac{length of Arc}{2\pi r}$$

We will use this $$\frac{Angle at arc}{360}$$ = $$\frac{area of sector}{area of circle}$$

$$\frac{p^o}{360}$$ = $$\frac{\pi}{2}$$*$$\frac{1}{2 \pi 2}$$

On simplification we get $$p^o = 45^o$$

* application of formula tag replaces spaces between strings. Don't know how to correct this.
