I made an equation and I know the equation will work for it but I need to find out what x equals. 500=[2pi(x/2)]2+x

    so it's times 2 not to the power of 2

    not sure what to do after I divide both sides by 2

    lets look at this bit first \[[2π(x/2)]× 2\], can you simplify this

    not sure what I did was I divided both sides by 2 to get rid of the 2 but I don't think that was right

    Yes, \[[2π(x/2)]×2=4\pi (x/2)\] now, simplify again \[=\]

    yeah so you have \[500=\big[2\pi(x/2)\big]\times2+x\\ 500= 2\pi x+x\]
