  1. Arc length = rθ ...(1)
    where r is radius and θ is central angle in radians.

    To convert 225° to radians, multiply by (π/180) to get 225π/180=5π/4

    Use formula (1) to calculate arc length, which should be in the same units as the radius.

  2. 2*225*pie/360*3
    should be the answer;)
