Either that or you're both wrong.
Well, if we both got a similar answer it MUST be right.
right on. thats what i got well 122.88 degree. i needed to be a little more accurate.
OK, well angle ARC is 360° × (3000/24902)
here is a link to a diagram of the problem if anyone is still interested
I caught the fact that you solved it yourself. Well done. But you did have the advantage of a diagram

I am trying to figure out the angle of a triangle with a curved base of 3000km it is part of a circle that has a circumference of 24902km and a radius of 6378km. There is a line that bisects the triangle. Its length is 830km. I need the angle of the triangle that is opposite the 3000km curved side. I wish I could add a picture it would make things easier. The triangle is outside the circle. Think of this problem as a satellite orbiting the earth.
