Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hint: area of slice = \(\LARGE \frac{x}{360}*\pi*r^2\) x is the angle in degrees r is the radius

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i don't understand how to use pi in equations

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what I would do is pull out the pi and ignore it temporarily

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In this case, x = 37 degrees and r = 10 if r = 10, then what is the value of r^2 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so, \[\Large \frac{x}{360}*\pi*r^2 = \frac{37}{360}*\pi*10^2\] \[\Large \frac{x}{360}*\pi*r^2 = \frac{37}{360}*\pi*100\] then you can rearrange terms

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1did you hold the command key and shift key, then press the "3" key? (the '3' over the 'w' and 'e') you should see a new pic file show up on your desktop

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sorry I don't know. None of the answer choices match what I wrote above, so I'm stumped. I think there's a typo maybe?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that's why I wanted to see the screenshot so I could see if anything was missing or not

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0only like that π(10in)237 over 360 π(10in)37 over 360 π(37in)210 over 360 π(37in)10 over 360

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the question says: Which of the following could be used to calculate the area of the sector in the circle shown above?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1does any of the answer choices have \(\Large 10^2\) in it?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so choice B is \[\Large \frac{\pi(10^2)37}{360}\] ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0crud its not working its just pi*10*(37/360)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or the 2nd one just with 10^2 instead of 10

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, so the "10" should be "10^2" because of the r^2 in pi*r^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0look: π(10in^2)237 over 360 π(10in)37 over 360 π(37in^2)210 over 360 π(37in)10 over 360

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so strange, it shouldn't be 10in^2 it should be 10^2 in^2 maybe that's what they meant?
