Comment on Pieces of Pi
I am confused by the question. I understand the concept of circumferences and got the bit that the arch 1/6 of the circle. But, at what point in the question did it say that points RTU make up a triangle? Points RTU could be three separate points on the circumference of the circle - couldn't it?
What am I missing here?

You're right to say that the arc is 1/6 of the circle.
This means the central angle of ∆RCU is 60°
Take a look at the image Bunuel created at https://gmatclub.com/forum/the-points-r-t-and-u-lie-on-a-circle-that-has...
Since the central angle of ∆RCU is 60°, we can see that ∆RCU is an EQUILATERAL triangle.
Since all sides are equal in an equilateral triangle, each side has length 4.
Does that help?
