Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait do i just do 10*10 cause its 10 times bigger that will give me 100

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What is the area of the second circle? Don't use 3.14. Just leave your answer in terms of pi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright so what next

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So do you see that to find how many times bigger the second circle is we should divide the area of the second circle by the area of the first circle?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the area of the first circle is 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when i divide a 100 by pie i get a decimal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do you understand so far because here is the important part which will save you work in the future?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In finding the area of a circle, what do you do with the radius?

Mertsj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You square the radius don't you?

Mertsj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, if we make the radius 10 times bigger and then square it, since 10 squared is 100, the new circle will be 100 times bigger. Do you understand that?
