SECTOR OF A CIRCLE

__Sector of
a Circle –__

**A sector of a circle is the region bounded by
two radii of the circle and either of the arcs that they cut off.**

**In the figure, OP and OQ are considered
to be two radii. They cut off the minor arc PSQ and the major arc PRQ. The
region bounded by OP, OQ, and PSQ is a minor sector. The region bounded by OP, OQ, and PRQ is a major sector.**
