Since ABC is an equilateral triangle, arc ABC is 2/3 of circumference, so circumference equals 24*3/2 = 36

\(\pi * Diameter = 36\) , so Diameter ~11

24/pi*D = 240/360 (Angle subtended by arc ABC = 240)

=> D = 36/pi = 36/3.14 ~ 11

Answer - C

In the figure above, equilateral triangle ABC is inscribed in the circle. If the length of arc ABC is 24, what is the approximate diameter of the circle?

A. 5
B. 8
C. 11
D. 15
E. 19

Arc ABC is \(\frac{2}{3}\) of the circumference (as ABC is equilateral triangle and thus arc AB=arc BC=arc AC, so arc AB+arc BC=arc ABC = 2/3 of circumference) --> \(24=c*\frac{2}{3}\), hence circumference \(c=\frac{24*3}{2}=36=\pi{d}\) --> \(d\approx{11.5}\).

Answer: C.
