I am confused about exactly what this question is asking. Can you head me in the right direction?

**PsyDAG**, Sunday, October 16, 2011 at 11:52pmIf I understand it correctly, since the radius is from the pitcher's mound to home plate, you have already been given the value of the radius. What value do they give?

However, as I recall, a baseball diamond is a square of side 90 feet. That means the diameter is 90√2 = 127.3 ft.
