Find the circumference and area of a circle that has a rectangle inscribed inside it with sides that are 9 by 12 centimeters. Write your answer as decimals rounded to the nearest hundredth. (hint: Draw this circle on your paper and find the length of the diagonal of the rectangle.)

you should know that Area = πr^2

and circumference is 2πr

and clearly the diameter is 2r

ao πr2=64

r = 8/√π

evaluate using your calculator and substitute in the above expressions.

Round off AFTER you have substituted,not before.

For your second question they have given you an excellent hint.

I will give you one more...

the radius of the circle is half the length of the diagonal of the rectangle.

**J.Feliciano**, Monday, January 5, 2009 at 5:32pma 9x12 rectangle has diagonals of

d = (9^2 + 12^2) = 225 = 15

since these diagonals are also the diameter off the circle

A = (d/2)^2 = (15/2)^2 = 176.7

C = d = (15) = 47.123

**J.Feliciano**, Monday, January 5, 2009 at 5:34pma 9x12 rectangle has diagonals of

d = square root of(9^2 + 12^2) = square root of 225 = 15

since these diagonals are also the diameter off the circle

A = pi (d/2)^2 = pi (15/2)^2 = 176.7

C = pi times d = pi(15) = 47.123
