60° is 1/6 of the circle (which has 360° of arc in total), so the length of the minor arc will be 1/6 of the circumference. 1/6 of 12π is 2π. from Tumblr https://ift.tt/2JsMj92

# In a circle with center O, the length of radius OB is 5. If the length of chord CD is 8, and if line CD perpendicular to line OB, then sin angle OCD =

Start by drawing it! Note that OC = 5 and OD = 5 because both of those are also radii. Note also that because chord CD is perpendicular to OB, it’s bisected by OB. In other words, it’s split into 2 segments each measuring 4. Things are really coming together! Because we know our Pythagorean (more…)

# What is the area of a circle that is inscribed in a square of area 2

First, a circle inscribed in a square looks like this: If that square has an area of 2, that means each of its sides has a length of √2. And THAT means that the radius of the circle is √2/2. The area of a circle is πr^2. Plug √2/2 in for r and you’ve got your (more…)

# Hi Mike, Can you tell me how to do #27 (Section 4, Practice Test 6).

Hi Mike,

Can you tell me how to do #27 (Section 4, Practice Test 6). I know how to do it by completing the square but was wondering if there is an easier way.

thanks!

Can you please explain College Board Test 5 Section 4 #36?

I understand that angle A is half of x- the only part of the college board explanation I’m not understanding is why we do (360-x) while setting up the equation. Thanks!
