**jim**, Tuesday, October 20, 2009 at 4:47pm14. I don't get the same answer.

a) Get size of property = 188 * 100 = 18800

b) Get size of lake = pi * 36^2 = 4069.44

c) Get size of island = pi * 12^2 = 452.16

d) Covered in water = (b) - (c)

Percentage = (d) / (a)

15. I don't get exactly this answer either, but very close - about $7 less. I don't think that the difference is due to rounding, but I'm not completely sure.

16. I don't get exactly this answer either. 1.03^75 = 9.1789. 9.1789 * 50 = 459.
