find thenumebr of radians through which the hour hand of a clock turns in 5 hours.

i dont know what i did, this is what i wrote:

360degrees=1 hour

1800 degrees=5 hours

1800(pi/180)

somehow i got 10pi which is apparantly wrong.

- trigonometry -
**Reiny**, Wednesday, January 7, 2009 at 1:55pmyou are making it harder than it has to be

once around is 2pi radians

5 hours is 5/12 of "once around"

so radians in 5 hours = 5/12(2pi) = (5/6)pi radians
