 Question 91177: 3(x-2)+2=2(x-4) Find the area of a circular flower bed whose diameter is 6 meters. Use pie=3.14 as an approximate value.Answer by praseenakos@yahoo.com(507)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Question: 1. 3(x-2)+2=2(x-4) 2. Find the area of a circular flower bed whose diameter is 6 meters. Use pie=3.14 as an approximate value. Answers: 1. 3(x-2)+2=2(x-4) ==> 3*x - 3 * 2 + 2 = 2 * x - 2 * 4 ==> 3x - 6 + 2 = 2x - 8 ==> 3x - 4 = 2x - 8 subtract 2x from both sides...... ==> 3x - 4 - 2x = 2x - 8 - 2x ==> 3x - 2x - 4 = 2x - 2x - 8 ==> x - 4 = -8 Add 4 on both sides.... ==> x - 4 + 4 = -8 + 4 ==> x = - 4. which is the required solution. 2. Find the area of a circular flower bed whose diameter is 6 meters. Use pie=3.14 as an approximate value. Area of a circle whose radius is 'r ' is given by the formula, So here the area of the flower bed is given by, Given, diameter = 6 meters. ==> radius = 3 meters. So ==> 3.14 * 9 ==> 28.26 meters.
