For example, I want to divide a circumference into 78 equal parts, and the circumference diameter is 1 meter!

Whats the length of each part? And how do you calculate it? (no compass please) Maths only please.

No idea why you'd want to do that(!), but here goes:

(changing 1 meter to centimeters to make it more readable)

1 meter = 100 cm = diameter

circumference = π * d = ~314.16 (π = pi = ~3.1416)

314.16 / 78 = ~4.03

Hope that helps you...
