 Question 246096: I am to find a polynomial for the remaining area of a rectangular shaped corral measuring 23m by 17m, after a circular based silo of x meters is built inside of it. Thus far, I have A=23m X 17m - nr^2. Is this correct?Answer by richwmiller(9135)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Is x the diameter of the silo or the radius? if x is the radius then the silo takes up pi x^2 if x is the diameter then the silo takes up pi *(x/2)^2 We have 23*17=391 sq meters for the corral without the silo A=391-pi * x^2 or A=391-pi *(x/2)^2
