okay that angle you see is actually in radians

5. dan815

when they say 4/9 pi they really mean 4/9 pi radius is our angle

6. dan815

that means this angle you see subtends a total of 4/9 pi radius units on the circumference of the circle

7. dan815

$\frac{4}{9}\pi * r =\frac{20}{3} \pi$\

ohh

9. dan815

yep :) so what is r

10. anonymous

so it would be r=15

11. dan815

yep

12. anonymous

Thank you soo much

13. DanJS

arc length = radius* theta

14. anonymous

:)

dont let radians confuse you, its a very simple idea, we are saying the angle in terms of the radius units thats why there are 2pi radians in a circle beacuse the circumference of a circle is 2 pi r

16. anonymous

ok thank you.:)

welcome
