Homework Help: Honors Pre-Calculus

Posted by Anonymous on Monday, September 24, 2007 at 5:11pm.

The latitude of Durham, North Carolina is 36 degrees North. About how far from Durham is the North Pole? Use 3963 miles for the radius of the Earth.

I believe there is a formula of s=r times the feta angle, but you may have to convert the degrees to radians. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong so if someone could get me going in the right direction I would appreciate it.
