A circle has 360 degrees. If an "anglet" is 1% of 1 degree, then there are 100 anglets per degree (1%=1/100). So, the number of anglets in a circle would be equal to 100 (anglets/degree) * 360 (# of degrees) = 36,000 anglets.

Is that the OA, or am I missing anything?

Jawad,

So using what you just stated, if each anglet is 1/100 of a 1 degree, or .01, then there must be 100 anglets in each degree.

Obviously in a circle there are 360 degrees. So then 360 degrees * 100 anglets per degree will get you the correct answer.
