A wheel with a 20-inch radius is marked at two points on the rim. The distance between the marks along the wheel is found to be 3 inches. What is the angle (to the nearest tenth of a degree) between the radii to the two marks?

someone helped me on this before: angle/360=3/(40pi), i know i have to solve for angle..but i still dont get the answer..

A. 4.6 degrees

B. 10.6 degrees

C. 6.6 degrees

D. 8.6 degrees
