Step 1: Identify the known or given information.

Step 2: Set up a formula for the sector area

             NOTE: A ratio will need to be constructed. Recall that a circle is composed

             of 360 degrees. Therefore, the following ratio can be made,

                       \frac{\theta}{360} = \frac{\text{sector area} (A_C)}{\text{Total area} (A_T)}

                       \text{Area of the circle} (A_T) = \frac{360}{\theta} * \text{Sector area} (A_C)

                  where, \theta = Central angle

Step 3: Plug the sector’s central angle measurement into the formula.

Step 4: Plug the given Sector area measurement into the formula.


Step 5: Solve the area.

EXAMPLE:   \text{Area of the circle} (A_T) = \frac{360}{\theta} * \text{Sector area} (A_C)

                     A_T = \frac{360}{26} * 3.32

                        Total area = 46
