    If O is the center of that circle then the measure of the central angle and the arc is the same. However, there is not enough information to answer this question. Have you listed all the givens?

    From that reply, we can assume that O is the center of a circle with radius 70.
    That means that what you called the other 'side' is also 70.
    But that means the angle could and measure.
    Something is missing.

    I think it is an angle of 70 degrees not a radius of 70.

    Then the arc is 70.
