Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you're trying to find the `length` of the metal frame that surrounds the trampoline, that's simply finding the circumference. `circumference = length` So what is the circumference of the circle?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@geny55 Are you more familiar with this formula \[C = \pi d\] or this formula for the circumference? \[C = 2\pi r\] Mathematically, they are the same, but some people feel more comfortable with one over the other.
