    Hi,

    I'm looking for help with the first question in this page. I'm only given the radius (which presumably isn't enough) and I have to work out the angle.

    I know I'm missing an observational thing I can use in the question, any help would be great.

    Thanks.

    See the diagram below:




    Use the triangle highlighted in green to find the angle.

    Hint: You need to use the cosine rule.

    See the spoiler if you still can't do it.

     7^2 = 5^2 + 5^2 - 2(5)(5)cos\theta
