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.

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
anonymous
  • anonymous
central angle is 15

@jim_thompson5910 Helpppp??

Central angel is not 15... :/ how did you get that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
360 / 24?
anonymous
  • anonymous
There are 24 cars ... the radius is 15 and the wheel is 360
pooja195
  • pooja195
Try again rember i said that there are 2 cars ignore the 24 for right now
pooja195
  • pooja195
360/2=?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh my bad okay so 360/2=180
Hero

First step: Draw a picture of the situation.
pooja195
  • pooja195
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 :)

  • Hero
I was about to fall asleep, but I saw you were helping so I left one eye open.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so since my question asks for 24 cars it would be 360/24=15 Central Angle
pooja195
  • pooja195
Not quite you need to find the circumference of the whole circle.
anonymous
  • anonymous
How do i figure that out ?
pooja195
  • pooja195
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
Hero
  • Hero
Explain how you're going to use the circumference to find the central angle.
anonymous
  • anonymous
94.245
pooja195
  • pooja195
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)
anonymous
  • anonymous
No in the question they say radius is 15 and there are 24 cars
pooja195
  • pooja195
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)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay, so the C = 94.245
pooja195
  • pooja195
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
