C^{2} ≈ 4 . 3.14 ∙ 28.26

C^{2} ≈ 354.94 Root both sides.

\(\sqrt{C^{2}}\) ≈ \(\sqrt{354.94}\)

The circumference of the circle is 18.84 in.

Let’s see if we get the same result if we use the original formula for circumference

Use the formula for the circumference of the circle.

C = 2πr(r) Substitute 3 for r and 3.14 for π.

C ≈ 23.14 ∙ 3

C ≈ 18.84

The circumference of the circle is 18.84 in.

Hence, we can use both formulas for the circumference of the circle.

Formula works, so we can use both formulas for the circumference of the circle.

Question 16.

**Multistep** A radio station broadcasts a signal over an area with a radius of 50 miles. The station can relay the signal and broadcast over an area with a radius of 75 miles. How much greater is the area of the broadcast region when the signal is relayed? Round your answer to the nearest square mile.

Answer:

We have to find the area of the signal that the station can relay, and the area of the signal that station broadcasts.

The station can relay the signal over an area with a radius of 75 miles, so the area of it will be

A_{1} ≈ π(r)^{2} Substitute 75 miles for r, and 3.14 for π.

A_{1} ≈ 3.14(75 miles)^{2}

A_{1} ≈ 3.14 ∙ 5625 miles^{2}

A_{1} ≈17, 662.5 miles^{2}

The area of the signal that the station can relay is about 17, 662.5 miles^{2}.

On the other side, the station broadcasts a signal over an area with a radius of 50 miles, so the area of it will be

A_{2} = π(r)^{2} Substitute 50 miles for r, and 3.14 for π.

A_{2} ≈ 3.14(50 miles)^{2}

A_{2} ≈ 3.14 ∙ 2500 miles^{2}

A_{2} ≈ 7 miles

A_{2} ≈ 7,850 miles^{2}

The area of the signal that the station broadcasts is about 7,850 miles^{2}.

The area of the broadcast region when the signal is relayed, is greater for the difference between the area of the signal that the station can relay, and the area of the signal that station broadcasts.

A_{1} – A_{2} ≈ 17,662.5 – 7,850 ≈ 9,812.5 miles^{2}

Question 17.

**Multistep** The sides of a square field are 12 meters. A sprinkler in the center of the field sprays a circular area with a diameter that corresponds to a side of the field. How much of the field is not reached by the sprinkler? Round your answer to the nearest hundredth.

Answer:

The area marked with red color is the area sprinkler does not reach.

To find it, first we have to find the area of the square, and a circular area that a sprinkler sprays.

Use the formula for the area of a square.

A_{1} = a^{2} where a represents side of a square. Substitute 12 m for a.

A_{1} = 12 m^{2}

A_{1} = 144 m^{2}

The area of the square is 144 m^{2}.

Use the formula for the area of the circle with a diameter same as a square.

Since the radius is half of the diameter, it follows

The area of the circular area that a sprinkler sprays is about 113.04 m^{2}

From the area of the square subtract the area of the circular area to get the area sprinkler does not reach.

À_{1} – A_{2} ≈ 144 m^{2} – 113.04 m^{2} ≈ 30.96 m^{2}

The area sprinkler does not reach is about 30.96 m^{2}.

Answer:

Find the area of the small and large circular cake.

Use the formula for the area of a circle.

Since the diameter is twice a radius, the formula for area of a circle when given the diameter is

A = π(r)^{2} Substitute \(\frac{d}{2}\) for r.

Let d_{1} be the diameter of the larger cake and d_{2} the diameter of the smaller cake.

d_{1} = 24 inches

d_{2} = 8 inches

Use the formula above to find the area of the large cake.

The area of the large cake is about 452.16 in.^{2}.

Use the formula above to find the area of the small cake.

The area of the small cake is about 50.24 in.^{2}

The top of the large cake have area greater than the area of the small cake for about

A_{1} – A_{2} ≈ 452.16 – 50.24 ≈ 401.92 in.^{2}

Hence, the area of the large cake is more than 3 times the area of the small cake.

Question 23.

**Analyze Relationships** Two circles have the same radius. Is the combined area of the two circles the same as the area of a circle with twice the radius? Explain.

Answer:

The combined area of the two circles, with the same radius, is twice the area of that circle.

Use the formula for the area of the circle.

A = the combined area

A_{1} the area of the circle

A = 2 ∙ A_{1}

A = 2πr^{2}

The area of the circle with twice the radius is

A = π(2r)^{2}

A = π2^{2}r^{2}

A = 4πr^{2}

Hence, the combined area of the two circles with the same radius isn’t the same as the area of the circle with twice

the radius.

Question 24.

**Look for a Pattern** How does the area of a circle change if the radius is multiplied by a factor of n, where n is a whole number?

Answer:

If we mutiply the radius by a whole number n, the area of the circle will be

Use the formula for the circle to find the area of the bull’s – eye with the diameter of 3 in

The area of the bull’s – eye is 7.06 in.^{2}

To find what part of the whole target is the bull’s – eye, we have to divide the area of the whole target by the area

of the bull’s – eye.

\(\frac{A_{1}}{A_{2}}\) = \(\frac{176.62}{7.06}\) = 25.01

Hence, the bull’s – eye is the 25th part of the whole target
