 Question 535885: A farmer tethers her goat to the corner of a 40-by-20-foot barn in a fenced lot that is 140-by-110 feet. She also has an herb garden next to part of the barn. The goat is tethered on a 50-foot rope to the corner of the barn farthest from the herb garden. What is the original grazing area? The original grazing area includes all the grass area the goat could reach including that section of the herb garden that the goat ate. I attempted the problem and found what I do not know to be a correct answer of 4415.625 square feet, however, I just want to make sure. Thank you very much in advance!

 Question 546953: A square and a circle intersect so that each side of the square contains a chord of the circle equal in length to the radius of the circle. What is the ratio of the area of the square to the area of the circle? Express your answer as a common fraction in terms of pi. Note: the diagram is a square, with a circle that has a diameter bigger than the square, and there are eight points where the circle intersects, 2 on each side of the square. From what i understand, the radius of the circle extends from the center out past the edge of the square, and the chord is only a fraction of one side of the square.Help? Thank you very much.
