- Homework Statement:
- Use Leonardo's table of chords to solve the following: Suppose a given chord in a circle of diameter 10 is 8 rods, 3 feet, 16 2/7 unciae. Find the length of the arc cut off by the chord.

- Relevant Equations:
- Leonardo's table of chords

I know that arc length is L=rx where x is the central angle in radians. But, that doesn't help me here, because I don't know the central angle, and because I need to use Leonardo's table of chords. I don't understand how the table works.
