Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the question marks are the distances, i chose 45 degrees as angle of rotation but you can choose any angle you want

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then find the arclength

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0arclength = angle*(pi/180)*radius for degrees

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0does this make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wouldn'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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the angle of rotation will be the same for Adam and Beth yes, only the radius will be different, which will give a different arclength

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you get to choose the angle of rotation but it must be the same for both

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because thats how the question is stated

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Did you just set it to 45 degrees in your drawings?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes it set it to 45 degrees

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Beth: arclength = 45*(3.14/180)*3 Is that how I should set it up?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes if you are using a approximation of pi that looks correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am, thanks! I'm going to finish working these out, will you check when I'm done?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Beth: 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well 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
