C = pi * d

272.2 = pi * d

272.2/pi = d

use 3.14 for pi

C = pi * 2r

272 = 3 * 2r

272 = 6r

272/6 = r

45 = r

Ms Sue,

I understand it now , but my choice answers none are 45? I followed your steps and got the same answer as you.

But your calculations are right.

Choices are :

43.3 in.

136.1 in.

86.7 in.

5887.2 in

So not sure why ?

Ugghh!

Of course you're right, but I don't like the answer choices with decimals. In my opinion, estimates should not involve decimals.
