    I've seen this problem posted before, the degree is supposed to be 90

    (the full problem says "quarter of a circle" somewhere, I'll see if I can find the full problem...)

    75*2*pi.

    because 90 is 1/4 360, would it be fair to say that the arc is 1/4 the circumfrence?

    so 150pi/4 is 37.5pi which is around 117.806

    you forgot to multipy by 2 when you were finding the circumfrence

    How do you define "distance"? is it the same with the length of the arc?

    no. the distance curves to form a arc. distance doesn't have to always be a straight line
