An arc is intercepted by a central angle of 2π/3 radians on a circle with a radius of 24 centimeters.

 

What is the exact length of the arc?

In this case pi is equal to 180 degrees, not 3.14159265358979323846...

 

2pi/3 is (2*180)/3 = 120. The center angle is 120 degrees which is 1/3 of the whole circle. 

 

All we need to do is find the length of the circumference. 

 

24 * 2 * pi = 48 pi 

 

48 pi / 3 = 16 pi 

 

16pi is the final answer.

Thank you for all your help. I tried doing this one multiple times by myself, but I didn't know it was equal to 180 instead of 3.14.
