Since the lines are all the same length, the angles are all the same measure.   The three angles equally divide the entire 360 degree circle.   1/3 of 360 degrees is 120 degrees.

The circumference of a circle is given by  pi d     where diameter = 2r = 24

115 degrees is a fraction of the 360 degrees of a complete circle.....this fraction is 115/360 ...so the arc length will be

(115/360) * pi * 24 = 24.07 inches
