First step: Draw a picture of the situation.
Okayyy...
Like this?
well my picture wont attach :/
Can you still help @Hero
It's late here. Let's do it tomorrow.
Okay , i have to get this done soon , so i"ll look for other help but that you anyway!!
I'll help you out with one thing. You can take 360 and divide it by 24 to get the central angle
central angle is 15
@jim_thompson5910 Helpppp??
Central angel is not 15... :/ how did you get that?
360 / 24?
There are 24 cars ... the radius is 15 and the wheel is 360
Try again rember i said that there are 2 cars ignore the 24 for right now
360/2=?
oh my bad okay so 360/2=180
First step: Draw a picture of the situation.
well done :) so with 20 cars, you'd have 360/20 = 18 degrees as the central angle (2 adjacent cars)
@Hero seems to want to help he can help you :)
I was about to fall asleep, but I saw you were helping so I left one eye open.
so since my question asks for 24 cars it would be 360/24=15 Central Angle
Not quite you need to find the circumference of the whole circle.
How do i figure that out ?
And you get 18 degrees rember \(\color{#0cbb34}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @pooja195 well done :) so with 20 cars, you'd have 360/20 = 18 degrees as the central angle (2 adjacent cars) \(\color{#0cbb34}{\text{End of Quote}}\) ^that and use the formula C = 2*pi*r<---to find circumference
Explain how you're going to use the circumference to find the central angle.
94.245
central angle is 15 <---thats right ok wait i mixed up the numbers >.< You need to find the circumference in order to get the arc length right? So first find the circumference... C = 2*pi*r r=24 (as given in the question)
No in the question they say radius is 15 and there are 24 cars
central angle is 15 <---thats right ok wait i mixed up the numbers >.< You need to find the circumference in order to get the arc length right? So first find the circumference... C = 2*pi*r ***r= 15(as given in the question)
Okay, so the C = 94.245
arc length = center angle/ 360 * pi * diameter = 15/360 * 3.1415 * (15 * 2) here I multiplied radius by 2 to get the diameter arc length = 3.93 ft Last part: Area of a Sector =theata/ 360 * pi * r^2 =15/360 * 3.1415 * (15^2) Area = 29.45 ft^2 Source:http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/5378cee8e4b0e54307956527
Thank you, you have helped a lot!
;)
thank hero instead :-)
Thank you both!
