Could Gabe's fragment match this plate?

How long would the arc length of a fragment be if it were 1/6 the circumference of the plate?

I have no idea how to start these.

d = 1.65 (6/pi) = 3.15

Toby finds another fragment of arc length 2.48 inches. What fraction of the outer edge of Gabe's plate would it be if this fragment were part of Gabe's plate?

1/4

1/2

2/3

3/4

pi d = 9.864

2.48 / 9.864 = .251

a quarter of it
