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.

gmatjedi wrote:is the answer 6?

rewrite equations as:

x + (5/3)y=28
y has to be zero or a multiple of 3
therefore,
your sets are
28,0; 23,3; 18,6; 13,9; 8,12; 3,15

Why didn't you consider possible negative values of x and y?

it must be E because the number of integers that satisfy the equation is more than 6.

I solved the problem by plugging in numbers. Does anyone know easier and less time consuming way to solve it?

thanks

Hi Mfaulkner, Here we need to find the volume in cubic meters. The answer to this question lies in the question itself: 0.001m=1mm. if we cube both sides of this equation, we will have: (0.001m)^3=(1mm)^3 =>>> 0.000000001m^3=1mm^3 Now we can replace mm^3 with m^3: 1,463,000 mm^3= 1463000*0.000000001...

We need to find the approximate diameter, which is 2R.

Length of the arc ABC=2/3 of the length of circumference.

The length of circumference is measured as 2ПR

24=2/3*2ПR

2ПR=72/2=36

2R=36/3.14=~11
