Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I can give you a formula that will help you find the answer. (9x  5) = 1/2 (larger arc  smaller arc) So 15864 = 94 / (1/2) = 47 angle (9x  5) = 47 so 47  5 = 42 42 / 9 = 4.6666666667 or you can round to 4.70 You can check it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh sorry it's actually my bad. You take 47 and then you add 5 and then you divide by 9 and that's x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is my work: (9x  5)º = (1/2)(158°  64º) (9x  5)º = (1/2)(94) (9x  5)º = 47° 9x + (5 + 5) = (47 + 5)° 9x = 52 9x/9 = 52/9 x = 5.78 x = 5.78
