Length of the arc = \(2 pi r @/360\) =\(2 pi\)
@=60
area of sector = \(pi r^2 @/360\) = \(pi * 36/6\) = 6 pi

Circumference = 2π(radius)
Given: radius is 6
So, circumference = 2π(6) = 12π

We're told the arc ACB has length 2π
2π/12π = 1/6.
So, the arc represents 1/6 of the circle's entire circumference
This also means sector ACBO represents 1/6 of the circle's area

Area of circle = π(radius)²
So, area of this circle = π(6)² = 36π

So, the area of sector ACBO = 1/6 of 36π
= 6π

Answer: A

Cheers,
Brent

\(A = \frac{S}{2πR} * πR^2\)

S = Arc Length = 2π

R = radius = 6

\(A = \frac{2π}{2π6} * 6^2\) = \(\frac{2π}{12π} * 36\) = \(6π\)

Just need to remember 2 formulas to solve this,

1) Find @(Theta) using below formula.

Circumference of Arc =@/360 * 2 PIE R

2) Add value of in below equation.

Area of Sector = @/360 * PIE Rsquare
