The distance around the equator of Saturn is about 378,675 km. What is the equatorial diameter of Saturn? Use pi = 3.14.
A) 241,209
B) 241,194
C) 120,584
D) 120,597
I think it is [D] but I'm not sure.

  • Geometry! -

    d is correct

  • Geometry! -

    C = pi * d

    378,675 = 3.14d

    378,675/3.14 = d

    120,597 = d

    You're right.

  • Geometry! -

    d pi = 378,675 Divide both sides by pi

    d = 378,675 / pi

    d = 378,675 / 3.14

    d = 120.597,133 km
