waecmaths question: 

POR is a sector of a circle centre O, radius 4cm, if $\angle PQR={{30}^{{}^\circ }}$. Find, correct to 3 significant figures, the area of sector POR $\pi =\tfrac{22}{7}$ 

Option A: 

19cm2

Option B: 

8.38cm2

Option C: 

10.5cm2

Option D: 

20.9cm2

waecmaths solution: 

$\begin{align}  & \text{Area of sector}=\frac{\theta }{{{360}^{\circ }}}\times \pi {{r}^{2}}=\frac{{{60}^{\circ }}}{{{360}^{\circ }}}\times \frac{22}{7}\times {{4}^{2}} \\ & =\frac{176}{21}c{{m}^{2}}=8.38c{{m}^{2}} \end{align}$
