There is a circular table and it has an area of 1256 square inches. The table opens in the middle to allow additional boards to be added. Each board is 12 inches squared, fits across the diameter of the table, and is rectangular in shape.
How many boards must be added to increase the area to 2696 square inches? Use 3.14 fro pi.
You don't need to use pi. Let x = number of boards.
1256 + 12x = 2696
Solve for x.
