Official Solution:

\(A\) and \(B\) are points on a circle of radius \(\frac{2}{\pi}\) and \(O\) is the center of the circle. If the length of arc \(AB\) is 0.8, what is the value of angle \(OAB\)?

A. 30 degrees
B. 36 degrees
C. 48 degrees
D. 54 degrees
E. 72 degrees


Look at the diagram below:

Image

The circumference of the circle is \(2\pi{r}=2\pi{*\frac{2}{\pi}}=4\). Now, since arc \(AB\) is \(\frac{0.8}{4}=\frac{1}{5}\) of the circumference (360 degrees) then angle \(AOB\) is \(\frac{1}{5}*360=72\) degrees.

Next, since triangle \(ABO\) is isosceles \((OA=OB=r)\) then \(\angle{OAB}=\frac{180-72}{2}=54\) degrees.


Answer: D

Dear Bunuel,
That is 180-72/2=54
Not same as you write 360−72/2= 144 Not 54.
Please repair it.

I think,in this question triangle formation OAB need to be captured in the problem definition. When you say angle OAB it can be also arc's angle [ I know this is not in the GMAT scope].

As of now 78% chose E hence answered incorrectly. The question in a tricky way asks to find an angle.
