Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0c=2piR and 200=4r+2x (x being the base of the rectangle) this is how i set it up

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You're not accounting for the circumference of the circle. Your equation only includes the area of the rectangle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You would need it to be \(2x + c = 200\)
