GMAT Challenge Problem Showdown: September 9, 2013


challenge problem
We invite you to test your GMAT knowledge for a chance to win! Each week, we will post a new Challenge Problem for you to attempt. If you submit the correct answer, you will be entered into that week’s drawing for a free Manhattan GMAT Prep item. Tell your friends to get out their scrap paper and start solving!
Here is this week’s problem:

A semicircular piece of paper has center O, as shown above. Its diameter A’A is coated with adhesive. If the adhesive is used to fuse radii OA’ and OA along their entire lengths (so that points A and A’ coincide, points P and P’ coincide, and so on), a cone is formed as shown above. If point B divides the original semicircle into two identical arcs, what is the measure of angle AOB in the folded cone?
