Since the minor arc is 30 degrees, the major arc is 330 degrees (360 - 30). So we have: 330 degrees : arc length 10 30 degrees : arc length x 330/30 = 10/x 11/1 = 10/x x = 10/11 x = 0.9 approximately So the length of the minor arc is approximately 0.9 units.

It's 0.524 of the length of the radius.

If the radius of the circle is r units and the angle subtended by the arc at the centre is x radians, then the length of the arc is r*x units. If you are still working with angles measured in degrees, then the answer is r*pi*y/180 where the angle is y degrees. If r and x (or y) are not available, or cannot be deduced, then you cannot find the length of the arc.

It is: 72-lenghth of major arc = length of minor arc

Since the minor arc is 30 degrees, the major arc is 330 degrees (360 - 30). So we have: 330 degrees : arc length 10 30 degrees : arc length x 330/30 = 10/x 11/1 = 10/x x = 10/11 x = 0.9 approximately So the length of the minor arc is approximately 0.9 units.

I'm assuming that "c" is short for "circumference". The length of an arc is (circumference)*(360/angle). So the length of an arc in a circle with circumference length of 18.84 is 6782.4/angle, where the angle is measured in degrees.

Minor arc/Circumference = 150/360 Minor arc = 31.4*150/360 = 13.0833...

Arc length = pi*r*theta/180 = 17.76 units of length.
