Homework Help: Math

Posted by Amy~ on Wednesday, May 25, 2011 at 10:51pm.

If the radius of a circle is 3960
the angle is 1.59
the arc length is 110

how would I find the hypotenuse?

I think it is 3960/cos1.59
but I know that you just don't automatically know that wouldn't it start out as cos1.59 = A/H (adjacent/ Hypotenuse)

Could someone explain to me the beginning of the steps that result in 3960/cos1.59 ? I'm trying to find the hypotenuse.
