# Area of quadrant formula explained

Learn and know what is the formula for finding area of quadrant. We all know what is the meaning of area, and know we will know meaning of quadrant. After that we will learn area of quadrant formula. Do you know what is a quadrant? In math. In two cases we can explain quadrant. One is according to coordinate geometry and second case is according to circle. According to coordinate geometry, if the plane is divided into 4 equal parts and here each part is called as a quadrant. According to circle, if the circle is divided into 4 equal parts, each part is called as a quadrant. We can also say one fourth part of a circle is a quadrant. Now list the area of quadrant formula based on circle.

## Formula for finding Area of Quadrant:

Area of circle is πr2. As quadrant is one fourth part of a circle. So area of quadrant is given by 1/4 πr2 where “r” is the radius of the circle.

Example:

If area of circle is 200 m2 then area of the quadrant is 1/4  200 = 50 m2. In case, if you are given radius of a circle then directly substitute in the formula and find are of quadrant.

Hope that you have learnt area of quadrant formula.
