Length of arc \(AB=2πx*(\frac{120}{360})=2πx*k\) (where \(k=\frac{120}{360}\))

Area of sector \(AOB=πx^2*(\frac{120}{360})\)=\(πx^2*k\)

Now, measure of arc AB: Measure of area of sector AOB=\(2πx*k:πx^2*k\)=\(2:x\)

Ans. (C)

Just a quick question, for this figure why are we not considering the outer sector with theta as \(240^o\)

making the answer as E.

Solution


Given:
    • Angle AOB = 120 degrees
    • Radius, OB = x

To find:
    • Length of arc, AB/area of sector AOB

Approach and Working:
    • Length of arc, AB = \(\frac{120}{360} * 2ᴨ * x = \frac{2ᴨx}{3}\)
    • Area of sector AOB = \(\frac{120}{360} * ᴨ * x^2 = \frac{ᴨx^2}{3}\)

Therefore, the answer is \(\frac{2ᴨx}{3}/\frac{ᴨx^2}{3} = \frac{2}{x}\)

Hence, the correct answer is Option C

Answer: C

area of sector : 120/360 * pi * x2 and arc AB is 120/360 * 2 * pi * x

ratio would give us
2/x IMO C

Since the radius is x, the area is πx^2, and since AB corresponds to a 120 degree angle, the area of sector AOB is 120/360 * πx^2 = 1/3 * πx^2 = (πx^2)/3.

Next we determine the circumference of the entire circle and the arclength of arc AB.

Circumference = 2xπ, so arc AB is 120/360 * 2xπ = 1/3 * 2xπ = 2xπ/3.

Finally arc AB is (2xπ/3)/(πx^2/3) = 6xπ/3πx^2 = 2/x of the area of sector AOB.

Answer: C

If x is the radius that means \(2pi * x\) is the perimeter and \(x^2 pi\) is the area

ARC AB is \(\frac{1}{3} of the total perimeter\) and area of AOB is also \(\frac{1}{3}\) of the total area.

This means that perimeter : area = (2pi*x/3) : (x^2*pi/3) = \(\frac{2}{x}\)
