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

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!
