Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yea. The area would be 78.5 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I would not make it decimal (because the answer choices have "pi" in them can you find the area, but do not change pi to a decimal?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first, what is the formula for Area of a circle?

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and r= 5 r squared ( \( r^2 \) ) = 5*5= 25 so Area= 25 * 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510582097494459230781640628620899862803482534211706798214808651328230664709384460955058... pi goes on forever... rather than truncating to approximately 3.14 (which is close but not exactly correct, as you can see), and rather than typing all those numbers (which you can't because they go on forever), people just say... call that number pi Area= \(25 \pi\) and let's not multiply it out unless you want a decimal number... and you can use as many digits of pi as makes sense for your problem (i.e. how accurate you want to be)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so the area of the circle is 25pi now divide that area into 6 equal pieces. what is the area of 1/6 of the whole circle? can you do that ? (and leave pi alone)

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it's \[ \frac{25\pi}{6} \] which is the same as \[ \frac{25}{6} \pi \] (hopefully that makes sense... if not you should learn why you can do that ) now what is 25/6 ?

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you mean 4.16666... (the 6 repeats) if you round to the nearest 100th (2nd decimal to the right of the decimal point) you get 4.17 now you can answer the question
