Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well what I'm thinking is that if there are 20 cars, they should be evenly spaced about. So it's just asking for the angle, arc length, and area for each 1/20th of the circle. The way to find the central angle between 2 cars is the \[\large \frac{Total~Angle~of~a~circle}{no.~of~cars}~=~\theta\] The arc length can be found using the formula \[\large Arc~=~2\pi r \times (\frac{\theta}{360})\] Area of a car can be found using the formula \[\large Area~=~\pi \times r^{2} \times (\frac{\theta}{360})\]
