The radius for Adam's place on the carousal is 6 ft, and Beth's is 3 ft.
I don't know exactly what this question is wanting me to do.
@Compassionate if you're not busy, do yo think you could help me out?
here is what its asking
see the question marks?
hold on let me redo it lol
XD Okie, thank you!
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
set radius of the circle to 3 for beth and 6 for adam
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
because thats how the question is stated
Did you just set it to 45 degrees in your drawings?
yes it set it to 45 degrees
in my 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
I am, thanks! I'm going to finish working these out, will you check when I'm done?
post what you get and someone will take a look
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
Bleh I don't like talking, but I'm sure I can manage..
haha i feel ya
Thank you for you help @billj5 c:
