If O is the center of the circle above, what fraction of the circular region is encompassed by an angle of x degrees?
In this question, the angles shown appear span half the circle. We can infer that they must, in fact, because the opposite angles of bisecting lines are equal. On the other side of each of the 2x angles shown is another 2x, and on the other side of each x shown is another x. Therefore,
2x+x+2x+x = 180
half the span of the circle. Thus, and . Since the full span of a circle is 360 degrees, the angle x spans a fraction of 30/360 = 1/12

In the coordinate plane, a circle has center (-1, -3) and passes through the point (4,2). What is the circumference of the circle?
To find the circumference of this circle, we need its radius. And the radius is the distance from its center to any point on the circle, so the radius is the distance from (-1 ,-3) to (4,2).
This distance is computed with the distance formula, which is essentially the Pythagorean Theorem. The sides of the triangle are the x and y distances, 5 and 5, so the distance is
The radius of the circle is 5√2, so the circumference is

Point C in the figure is the upper-right point of a square that has sides of length r. And the distance from the origin to C is the diagonal of the square, so it is the hypotenuse of a right triangle with height r and base r, so the distance will equal
