# Find the area of a sector of a circle with radius 6 cm if angle of the sector is 60°

**Solution:**

We use the formula for the area of the sector of a circle

The formula for area of the sector of angle θ is θ/360° × πr^{2}

Given, θ = 60°, Radius = 6 cm

Area of the sector = θ/360° × πr^{2}

= 60°/360° × 22/7 × 6 × 6

= 132/7 cm^{2}

= 18(6/7) cm^{2}
