A regular hexagon is drawn inside of a circle so that each of its vertices touches the circle. The diameter of the circle is 4 centimeters and the perimeter of the hexagon is 12 centimeters. How much longer is the circumference of the circle than the perimeter of the hexagon? (use 3.14 for pi)

• math -

the circumference is 4pi
the perimeter is 12

so, 4pi - 12 = ?

• math -

The answer for your question is simple, π = 3.14, so, first you multiply 4 by 3.14, then it comes to 12.56, right? Yes. The last thing you need to do is to subtract 12 from 12.56 and you get 0.56! :) Hope this helps! ;)
