Hello:

I am having difficulty witht the following math:

Question #1 If the area of a circle is 27 sq. in. What is the radius? I am coming up with an answer of 13.5 sq. in. Is that correct? If not, can you show me step by step how to get the answer?

Question #2 If the area of a circle is 108 cm to the second power, what is the radius?

Thanks.

Grade 5, that's pretty tough

The area of a circle is pi times the radius squared, so work it backwards

divide 27 by pi (on calculator) = 8.594

now take the square root of that to get a radius of 2.93 inches.

your answer is in square inches, that makes no sense.

How did you get 13.5 ?

Do the second question the same way as I showed you for the first, you should get 5.863

If your circle is 27 sq in. Here is how you would work it out to find the radius.

A(area)=3.14(pie) times R(radius) times R

27sq in. = 3.14 x R x R=

27sq in/3.14 x R x R=

8.59 sq in x R =

8.59 sq rt= 2.93

So your radius = 2.93

hope this helps
