Keep in mind that a sector of the area bounded by two radii and the includes arc. When it comes to calculating the area of the sector, we are going to use the formula a=n/360 (pi)(radius)^2. Remember that the n in the formula refers to for the measure of the central angle in degrees. Given that the data provided in the the problem is in radians, you can convert by multiplying by 1.25 to 180/pi. Then you can now insert the converted value into the formula to find the area of the sector.
