You order a pizza from a parlor with some friends. The chef has cut the round pie into four slices with two straight cuts that go through the center of the pizza.

NASA is testing their space robot. They gave it instructions to:
- Move forward 3 miles
- Turn 90 degrees left
- Move forward 4 miles
- Turn 90 degrees left
- Move forward 3 miles

How far away will the robot be from its starting point?

Consider the pie chart shown above, where the ratio of angles formed by the 3 sectors are \( 3 : 14 : 1 \). In degrees, what is the measure of angle formed for the sector that represents the shady side of the pyramid?
