    Begin by calculating the area of the minor sector.

    You can then calculate the area of the entire circle, and then subtract the above to find the area of shaded region.

    the same as normal, find the area of the sector and take it away from the area of the whole circle. or find the area of the leftover amount... so you have pi*r^2 - 1/10 * pi*r^2 OR 9/10 *pi*r^2

    Oh and remember that there is pi in radians is 180degrees. Once you remember that fact it'll make all your calculations easier.

    \frac{rest of circle area}{sector area}=\frac{2\pi-\frac{\pi}{5}}{\frac{\pi}{5}}=9
    and you know the sector area.
