two small parks of diameter 16m , 12 m are to be replaced by a bigger circular park. what would be the diameter of this new park, if the new park has to occupy the same space as the two small parks?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well area of a circle is pi*r^2. And diameter is twice as big as the radius. So add them both up individually. pi*(16/2)^2 + pi*(12/2)^2. =pi*8^2 +pi* 6^2 =pi*64 + pi* 36 = 64pi+36pi. =100pi The total area of the two small parks is 100pi. So you need to find a new park with the same area. Area=Pi*r^2. 100pi=pi*r^2 Divide both sides by pi 100=r^2. Square root both sides r=10. And since the radius is half the distance of the diameter, you multiply it by 2. The answer is b. 20 m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it occupies same space so the area of the larger park must equal the sum of the smaller parks areas A = pi*r^2 park1 area = 8^2 pi = 64pi park2 area = 6^2 pi= 36pi sum = 64pi + 36pi = 100pi Area larger park = pir^2 = 100pi r^2 = 100 r=10 diameter = 20
