## Circles

##### This topic has expert replies

as all angles of triangle are equal the circle is divided on 3 equal arc ab, bc, ca, and each is equal 360/3=120 degreesdkumar.83 wrote:The correct answer is 11. BTW how did u assumed 240degrees?

so ab+bc=120+120=240

the other way to see that angle abc=1/2* center angle. 60=1/2*center angle. and center angle=120. say aoc=120. then

360-120=240. (i mean external center angle=240)

also i assumed that pi=3 and final answer does`t match exactly

How did u assumed that length of d arc is 2/3rd of circumference?

It is an equilateral triangle inscribed into a circle, so it divides the circumference of the circle into 3 equal parts. Arc ABC is 2/3 of the circumference.
