**Question: 201**

**6.** If A and B both lie on a circle with an area of 16π, and the length of is 2π, what is the radian measure of the central angle between A and B ?

- A.
- B.
- C.
- D.

**Correct Answer:** C

**Explanation:**

C Sketch a picture and write the formulas for arc length and area: s = rθ, A = πr^{2}. Start by finding the radius. If the circle has an area of 16π, then 16π = πr^{2}; divide both sides by π to get 16 = r^{2}. The radius must be 4. So plug in the arc length and radius into your formula: 2π = 4θ. Divide both sides by 4 to get = θ. Choice (C) is correct.
