A section is cut out of a circular piece of paper having radius four inches, as shown. Points A and B are then glued together to form a right circular cone. What is the circumference of the base of the resulting cone? Express your answer in terms of $$\pi$$. (The $$270^\circ$$ sector forms the cone.) Jun 8, 2019

circumference of base of cone  =  length of major arc AB

length of major arc AB  =  $$\frac{270}{360}\cdot$$ circumference of circle

length of major arc AB  =  $$\frac{270}{360}\cdot2\pi\cdot4"$$

length of major arc AB  =  $$\frac{3}{4}\cdot2\pi\cdot4"$$

length of major arc AB  =  $$6\pi"$$_
