  1. There are 360 degrees in a full circle.

    6% of 360 degrees = .06 * 360 = 21.6 degrees = 22 degrees to nearest degree

    .08 * 360 = 29 degrees etc.

  2. See that's exactly what I thought, the 22% one was #1 but when I checked it in the back of the book it said it should be 25. Could the book be wrong? (It also says #3 should be 32)

  5. Yes! The answer you provided on this website is true! I confirmed with my Geometry teacher that the answer in the book for #1 is in fact wrong... it is a typo.
