(a)  central angle  = 60....circumference  = 42 cm

Formula for arc length =    2 * pi * radius  * (central angle / 360 )

42   =   2 * pi * radius * (60 / 360)

42   =   2 * pi * radius (1/6)

42  =  pi / 3 * radius      ......multiply both sides by  3 /pi

42* 3 /pi   = radius  ≈  40.11 cm

b)  central angle  = 72........radius  = 6 ft

Arc length =   2 pi * 6 * ( 72 /  360)   =  12 pi *  (1/5)  = 12 / 5 * pi  ft  ≈  7.54 ft   Sep 4, 2018

(c)

56  = 2 pi  * radius *  (145 / 360)

56 = 2 pi * radius*  (29/72)

56 =  pi * radius * (29/ 36)

56 = (29/36) pi  * radius      ..divide both sides by  (29/36) pi

56/  [ 29/36 * pi ]   =  radius  ≈ 22.13  in

(d)

Arc Length =  2 pi * 5  *  (150 /360)  =   10 (5/12) * pi    =  (5/6) * 5 pi  ≈  13.09 m   Sep 4, 2018
