In a circle with area of 120 to 124 sq inches…

In a circle with area of 120 to 124 sq inches, the area of the sector formed by an angle is between 20 and 21 sq inches. What is one possible integer value of the angle? I came up with a low value of 60 (if area of circle is on the lowest end, 120 sq inches, and area of the sector is also on the low end, 20 inches). If both those areas are on the highest end, then I came up with 60 again. But answer is supposed to be 59 ≤ x ≤ 63. Does this make sense, and if so, can you explain it?

I’m having a little trouble understanding the explanation for #3 on the Working in Three Dimensions…

Hello Mike,
Basically, I’m having a little trouble understanding the explanation for #3 on the Working in Three Dimensions section on page 284. I got a little lost after the part where you explained how d was the height (this makes sense to me). Like, how do we “recognize that the ab term in the surface area expression must represent both the top and the bottom of the prism”? I think it’s somewhere from the equation but I don’t know where. I would greatly appreciate your help here Mike. Thanks!

Hello! For question #8 on page 111 in the Exponents and Exponential Functions section, where did the 2^2 come from? The answer was 82.41*2^2= 329.6. Thank you ^_^.
