The table shows an angle measure in radians and the amount of rotation about a circle corresponding to the angle. For example, \(2\pi\) radians corresponds to 1 full rotation. Complete the table.
Problem 3
A wheel has a radius of 1 foot. After the wheel has traveled a certain distance in the counterclockwise direction, the point \(P\) has returned to its original position. How many feet could the wheel have traveled? Select all that apply.
\(\frac{\pi}{2}\)
\(\pi\)
\(2\pi\)
\(5\pi\)
\(10\pi\)
Problem 4
Here are some points labeled on the unit circle:
 What is the measure in radians of angle \(POR\)?
 Angle \(POQ\) is halfway between 0 radians and angle \(POR\). What is the measure in radians of angle \(POQ\)?
 Label point \(U\) on the circle so that the measure of angle \(POU\) is \(\frac{3\pi}{4}\).
 Label point \(V\) on the circle so that the measure of angle \(POV\) is \(\frac{3\pi}{2}\).
Problem 5

Mark the points on the unit circle with \(x\)coordinate \(\frac{4}{5}\).
 What are the \(y\)coordinates of those points? Explain how you know.
Problem 6
The point \((8, 15)\) lies on a circle centered at \((0,0)\). Where does the circle intersect the \(x\)axis? Where does the circle intersect the \(y\)axis? Explain how you know.
Problem 7
Triangles \(ABC\) and \(DEF\) are similar. Explain why \(\tan(A) = \tan(D)\).
