Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm taking radius to be half of the side length. Then one side is 26 cm and the area of a square is the length of a side squared. A=26^2=676 C) 676

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I guess radius should be half of the diagonal in this case.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in that case the side length is 26/sqrt(2) and we have an area of 338

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what has your teacher used when they talked about radius of a square? I geuss it would make more sense that it is the measure from the center of the object to the circle your polygon is inscribed in. I would go with half of the diagonal
