A carnival ride is in the shape of a wheel with a radius of 15 feet. The wheel has 24 cars attached to the center of the wheel. What is the central angle, arc length, and area of a sector between any two cars? Round answers to the nearest hundredth if applicable. You must show all work and calculations to receive credit.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'll help you out with one thing. You can take 360 and divide it by 24 to get the central angle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are 24 cars ... the radius is 15 and the wheel is 360

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well done :) so with 20 cars, you'd have 360/20 = 18 degrees as the central angle (2 adjacent cars)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so since my question asks for 24 cars it would be 360/24=15 Central Angle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Not quite you need to find the circumference of the whole circle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How do i figure that out ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1And 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Explain how you're going to use the circumference to find the central angle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1central 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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No in the question they say radius is 15 and there are 24 cars

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1arc 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
