    The radius for Adam's place on the carousal is 6 ft, and Beth's is 3 ft.

    the question marks are the distances, i chose 45 degrees as angle of rotation but you can choose any angle you want

    so basically you can draw a circle like this

    then find the arclength

    arclength = angle*(pi/180)*radius for degrees

    does this make sense?

    Wouldn't the angle of rotation be the same for Adam and Beth? I think I get what you're saying about arc length though, I understand that difference.

    the angle of rotation will be the same for Adam and Beth yes, only the radius will be different, which will give a different arclength

    you get to choose the angle of rotation but it must be the same for both

    Did you just set it to 45 degrees in your drawings?

    Beth: arclength = 45*(3.14/180)*3 Is that how I should set it up?

    yes if you are using a approximation of pi that looks correct

    Beth: arclength = 45*(3.14/180)*3 arclength = 45*(0.017)*3 arclength = 2.295 Adam: arclength = 45*(3.14/180)*6 arclength = 45*(0.017)*6 arclength = 4.59

    well if you approximate the fraction 3.14/180 then those are correct, its probably best if you dont approximate but since you showed your work it might be ok, now you just need to say all that in sentences
