A car travels a distance of 745 m along a circular track, and the driver finds that she has traveled through an angle of 475°. What is the radius of the track?

2. Relevant equations

None that I know. The only thing I know is that the track is circular

3. The attempt at a solution

I used an example in my texbook which was identical to this one except the distance was 750 m and the angle was 450.

First I :

750/4=187.5( The 4 is from the 4 different quadrants)

Then I:

187.5/2=93.75------>94m

The solution in the back of the book said that the answer was 95 m but I'm not to sure if this is the right procedure.

This is the last homework problem that I have to complete before I turn it in before midnight.
