### Circumference and Arc Length

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 ).

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

### Re: Circumference and Arc Length

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.
