If a circle's circumference is 15 inches, what is its radius?

C = pi * d

15 = 3.14 * d

15/3.14 = d

4.77707 = d

4.77707 / 2 = r

2.388535 = r

C = pi * d

15 = 3.14 * d

15/3.14 = d

4.77707 = d

4.77707 / 2 = r

I apologize, but I do not understand any of them.

Circumference = pi * diameter

Then I substituted real numbers for the letters.

How did you know which numbers to use?
