- Sector( <Conic>, <Point>, <Point> )
- Yields a conic sector between two points on the conic section and calculates its area.
**Examples:**- Let
`c: x^2 + 2y^2 = 8`

be an ellipse,`D = (-2.83, 0)`

and`E = (0, -2)`

two points on the ellipse.`Sector(c, D, E)`

yields*d = 4.44*. - Let
`c: x^2 + y^2 = 9`

be a circle,`A = (3, 0)`

and`B = (0, 3)`

two points on the circle.`Sector(c, A, B)`

yields*d = 7.07*

- Let

**Note:**This works only for a circle or ellipse.

- Sector( <Conic>, <Parameter Value>, <Parameter Value> )
- Yields a conic sector between two parameter values between
*0*and*2π*on the conic section and calculates its area. **Example:**Let`c: x^2 + y^2 = 9`

be a circle.`Sector(c, 0, 3/4 π)`

yields*d = 10.6*

**Note:**Internally the following parametric forms are used:- Circle:
*(r cos(t), r sin(t))*where*r*is the circle's radius. - Ellipse:
*(a cos(t), b sin(t))*where*a*and*b*are the lengths of the semimajor and semiminor axes.

- Circle:
