2. cherio12

what's the angle in the picture 90?

3. needmathhelp7

@JamesJ @precal @cherio12

4. needmathhelp7

99 ! :) @cherio12

5. precal

a circle is 360 degrees total

6. needmathhelp7

so do you subtract 99 - 360? @precal ?

7. precal

that would give you a negative angle, you do not want a negative angle

8. needmathhelp7

Okay so what do I do? :) @precal @cherio12

9. precal

you were closer earlier, switch your numbers

10. needmathhelp7

360 - 99? :) @precal or do you divide? @Luis_Rivera

11. precal

yes and no you do not divide

12. needmathhelp7

Oh so you do 99-360? to find the arc? @precal

13. precal

really ? 360-99 is what you need to do

14. needmathhelp7

I mean *360 - 99 sorry! that's what I meant to say

15. precal

yes

16. needmathhelp7

What if the number instead of 99 was 115? do you then subtract 360 - 115? @precal

17. precal

yes, if 115 is in the exact position instead of 99

18. needmathhelp7

okay :) Thank you
