# C2 Area of sector help! watch

1. Hey everyone:

Find the area of the shaded sector in the circle, centre C.

Before I proceed..... from what I understand.

0.6c = 0.6π

right?

I put my calculator in radians, maybe is this why I'm getting the wrong answer?

I'm using the formula 1/2(r^2 * theta)

I've done:

1/2(8^2)*0.6π

on my calculator and got 60.3

19.2 is the answer at the back of the book.

Any help is appreciated!
2. literally just means 0.6 radians, no . this may be where you're going wrong.
