where r is the radius and π is approximately 3.1426. You have a radius of r units so you can find the circumference. Your sector is only a fraction of the circle, in fact it is 150/360 of the circle. The arc of the sector is only a fraction of the perimeter of the circle. In fact it is 150/360 of the perimeter. The sector is shaped like a piece of pie, the perimeter is the length of the arc plus twice the radius. I hope this helps,
