Solution by Steps
step 2
First, we convert the central angle from degrees to radians. Since 180180^\circ is equivalent to π\pi radians, 175175^\circ is 175180π\frac{175}{180} \pi radians
step 3
Now we can substitute the values into the formula: A=12×122×175180π=12×144×175180πA = \frac{1}{2} \times 12^2 \times \frac{175}{180} \pi = \frac{1}{2} \times 144 \times \frac{175}{180} \pi
step 4
Simplifying the expression, we get A=72×175180π=35×πA = 72 \times \frac{175}{180} \pi = 35 \times \pi
step 5
The area of the sector is therefore 35π cm235 \pi \text{ cm}^2

Key Concept
Area of a Sector
Explanation
The area of a sector is calculated by the formula A=12r2θA = \frac{1}{2} r^2 \theta, where the angle θ\theta must be in radians.
