The equation for circumference is 2*pi*r. You have pi and the circumference (= 15ft). So the equation becomes:
15 = 2*pi*r. Now solve for r.
I'm confused :c
Okay, we'll do this step-by-step.
The equation for the circumference of a circle is given by C = 2*pi*r, where C is the circumference (given as 15ft), pi is, well, pi (given as 3.14 in the question), and r is the radius of the circle. Our goal is to find the radius.
First we substitute everything we know into the equation for the circumference, so it becomes:
15 = 2*3.14*r
Are you following so far?
Now, we divide both sides of the equation by 2*3.14, so that the right-side of the equation becomes only 'r' - like so:
15/(3.14*2) = (2*3.14*r)/(2*3.14)
15/(3.14*2) = r
Now simply divide 15 by the product of the (3.14*2) to get the required radius in feet. :)
