Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arc_(geometry) \[\frac{arc degree}{360}=\frac{arclength}{circumference}\] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arc_(geometry) \[\frac{arc degree}{360}=\frac{arclength}{circumference}\] \[\frac{155}{360}=\frac{14}{2\pi*r}\] Using cross multiplication: \[155*2\pi*r=14*360\] Solve for r. Note: I got 5.17, so someone wrote it down wrong (either you or the teacher!)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Probably because it's not a truly vetted source. It is better to use your book to find the equation. If you google something (e.g. arc length) and find multiple pages on the net have the same equation, then you're probably good. Having said that your book is always your best source!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont have a book, i have online schooling and its a test so i cant go back to look at how to solve it.
