The points A and B lie on the circumference of a circle center O and radius

r cm, such that the angle AOB = θ radians. The sector AOB has area 9cm^2 and the total perimeter of sector AOB is 15cm.

a)Show that r satisfies the equation 2r^2 - 15r + 18 = o

b)Find the value of θ,explaining why there is only one possible value.

------------------

I know that area of sector = (1/2).(r^2).(θ)

not sure if perimiter of sector would be length of arc + radius x2

Any help is appreciated,thanks!
