19. The circumference of the circle below is 25.12 centimeters
***** There is a circle and then there is a line and written radius
C = 2(pi)r

Which is the best estimate for the length of the radius of the circle?
a) 3 cm
b) 4 cm
c) 8 cm
d) 16 cm
please help i tried to solve this problem and I'm struggling (I'm NOT lying)
but i think the answer is b idk ..... I'm not guessing thought
I know haft of 25.12 is 12.56.

Please help

thank you

  1. The formula for the circumference of a circle is:

    C = pi * 2r

    25.12 = 3.14 * 2r

    25.12/3.14 = 2r

    8 = 2r

    8/2 = r

    4 = r

  2. pi = 3.14

    2 pi = 6.28

    C = 2 r pi

    25.12 = 2 r pi Divide both sides by 2 pi

    25.12 / 2 pi = r

    r = 25.12 / 2 pi

    r = 25.12 / 6.28

    r = 4 cm

  3. Thank You Ms. Sue! :)

    Now I understand because I didn't learn this yet in math since we are behind in our curriculum. I'm going to rewrite this so that I way I can use this to study for the exam. I'm going to post more problems (don' worry not too much). I left some geometry questions (about 2) and other problems that I need help with (don't worry it's about 4 more problems or 3 that I'm going to post). Some questions are homework checks to see if I'm correct.

    thanks again :)
