From figure, AB = 5 inches

And triangle AOB is an equilateral triangle, because angle OAB = angle OBA

=> angle OAB = (180 - AOB )/2 = 60 degrees

Now, AB = OA = OB = 5 inches, because triangle AOB is an equilateral triangle

So radius of circle is 5 inches

And circumference = 2 * pi * 5

= 10pi

Answer - A

Hope this helps :)

In triangle AOB,

angle AOB=60,
OA=OB =radius of the circle therefore, angle OAB=angle OBA
thereby angle OAB=angle OBA = (180-angle AOB )/2 =60

Since all angles in the triangle are 60 , so it is an equilateral triangle with each side equal .
So, OA=OB=AB = 5

circumference = 2* pi *r = 10 pi

Ans :A
