## How to Calculate Area Of Segment Of Circle

*Example: What is the area of segment of circle with radius = 10 units and angle = 125 units?*

As;

area of segment of circle = (angle*π/360-sin(angle)/2)*(radius)^{2}

By substituting the above given data in the previous function;

(i.e.) = (125*π/360-sin(125)/2)*(10)^{2}

Answer is: units^{2}.
