Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Convert your angle to radians first. Do you know the formula for that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, the conversion for degrees to radians is: \[Angle*\pi/180\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hold on, I think you're a little confused still. We know the Arc Length: That was given in your drawing as 14cm We know the angle (that you converted to radians) as 2.705260341 What we're looking for is the radius of the circle that fits those conditions. We can use the formula that I have you to find any single piece of the info that we're missing if we're given the other two.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let's call the Arc Length S and the Radius R and the Angle A. So: S=RA Divide through by A to get: S/A = R So the radius of the circle (R) is equal to the arc length (S) divided by the Angle in radians (A)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When I divide 14 by 2.705260341, I'm getting 5.175. Rounded to the nearest tenth, that should be 5.2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, don't forget to round to the nearest tenth though.
