If the degree measure of an arc of a circle is increased by 20%  and the radius of the circle is increased by 25%, by what percent does the length of the arc increase?

Let x = degree of arc

 

x/360  *  pi * d  = arc length

                            Now increase x  by 1.2   and  d by 1.25     (20% and 25% respectivley)

 

x/360 (1.2) * pi * d 1.25 = 1.5 arc length        The arc length increases 50%
