I'm not understanding as to how to solve these. I would really appreciate a good explanation as to how to solve them. Maybe you could create a problem similar to one below and solve it step-by-step explaining what to do (I would REALLY love that ).

What is the radius if:

1. n=30 L=1/3xy(pi)

A 6xy

B8xy

C2xy

D10xy

E 3xy

F 14xy

2. n=40 L=8/9(t)(pi)

A 20t

B5t

C9t

D18t

E 12t

F 4t

3. n=15 L=(21/36)pi

A 7

B21

C28

D62

E 56

F 14

4. n=5 L=1/2pi

A 24

B30

C45

D18

E 66

F 39

5. n=18 L=6(y)pi

A 30y

B45y

C120y

D90y

E 15y

F 60y

hi demha,

I'm not getting these either at the moment. If L is an arc of a circle but what is n ?

Or can you post a diagram?

LATER EDIT:

Is n the angle at the centre?

So what fraction is that angle of a complete turn. eg 90 degrees is one quarter of 360.

That is the same as the fraction made by arc length divided by circumference.

ie.

This seems to work in the sense that each gives one of the multi-choice answers.
