The arc length is

#### Explanation:

First of all, you need to compute the radius.

If you center is at

#r = sqrt((4-3)^2 + (6-1)^2) = sqrt(1 + 25) = sqrt(26)#

Now, the the length of an arc covering the whole circle would be equivalent to the perimeter of a circle,

In your case, you would like to compute an arc covering

Thus, your arc length is
