From ana:
Julie lives on a cul-de-sac and wants to know if the city calculated the area of her plot of land correctly (see diagram below). We can assume the cul-de-sac is a circle and it has radius 40 feet.The boundary of the lot along the cul-de-sac (the arc from A to B) is 78.21 feet. The city found the area to be 7012.5 square feet–are they correct?
