Hi there!

 

I can't move this to the math category... the system is broken tonight.

 

Can you tell me what "rr" is?

 

Thanks,

Scott

radius
Expert:  Scott replied 8 years ago.

Really?

 

So it says that the circumference is:

20 radius units

 

Is that right?

sorry, I believe it is the pie symbol
Expert:  Scott replied 8 years ago.

Ok, that makes a lot of sense!

 

C = 20pi

 

Get the radius first:

C = 2piR

 

Plugging in C:

2piR = 20pi

 

Divide by 2pi:

R = 10

 

Get the area, using the area formula:

A = pi*R^2

 

A = pi*10^2

 

A = 100pi square units

 

Let me know if you have any questions,

Scott
