## jahnavi 2 years ago If a circle is divided into three equal arcs then each arc is a major arc. True or False?

1. hartnn

u know what is a major arc ?

2. jahnavi

yes

3. hartnn

so what u think it is ? true or false ?

4. jahnavi

false

5. hartnn

false is correct :)

6. jahnavi

why

7. hartnn

major arc must be >180 degrees. here each arc = 360/3 =12 degrees.

8. hartnn

*120 degrees.

9. jahnavi

I have an another explanation.

10. hartnn

like ?

11. jahnavi

If you consider one arc of the circle ,then the remaining 2 arcs make a major arc. so, the one which we have considered becomes a minor arc.

12. hartnn

yeah, u can say so...good.

13. jahnavi

thankyou!

14. hartnn

welcome ^_^

15. hartnn

any more Questions ? or doubts ?

16. jahnavi

yes i have one more question

17. hartnn

18. jahnavi

A sector is the region between the chord and its corresponding arc. True or false?

19. hartnn

what u think, true or false ?

20. jahnavi

false

21. hartnn

you are correct again.

22. jahnavi

why

23. hartnn

The part of the circular region bounded by two radii and the corresponding arc is called a sector

24. hartnn

he region between the chord and its corresponding arc is segment.
