Length of Arc AB=3π=2πr*(Angle AOB/2π)=r* Angle AOB---(1)

Given Area of circle=16π
Or, $$π*r^2=16π$$
Or, $$r^2=16$$
Or, $$r=4$$

Now from(1), we have Angle AOB=3π/4=135 degree

Ans. (E)

Solution

Given:
• Length of arc AB = 3ᴨ
• Area of circle = 16ᴨ

To find:
• Angle AOB

Approach and Working:
Length of arc AB = $$\frac{x}{360} * 2ᴨ * r$$, where,
• x = angle AOB
• r = radius

Radius = √16 = 4
• Therefore, $$x = \frac{3ᴨ * 360}{2ᴨ * 4} = 135$$ degrees

Hence, the correct answer is Option E

angle /360 * 2* pi * r = 3 pi
and pi * r2 = 16 pi
r = 4
angle = 540/4
= 135
IMO E

Since the area of the circle is 16π, the radius is 4, and the circumference is 2 x π x 4 = 8π.

Since arc AB has a length of 3π, the central angle is 3π/8π x 360 = 3/8 x 360 = 3 x 45 = 135 degrees.

My thought process if it helps anyone:

Area = 16pi means radius = 4

This means the perimeter of the circle is 8pi.

The ratio of the angle to 360 will equal to the ratio of the length of the arc to the entire perimeter.

$$\frac{3pi}{8pi} = \frac{x}{360}$$

x= 135
