 Question 507525: if the diameter of a circle is 3meters, what is the perimeter of the smallest square that can fully contain the circle? Answer by oberobic(2304)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!If you envision the square touching the circle at 4 points, with the circle inside the square, you can see that the dimensions of the square will be equal to the diameter of the circle. So, it will 3 meters on each side. The perimeter will be 4*3 = 12 m. . Since the perimeter of the square has to be greater than the circumference of the circle, you can check that. circumference = pi*d = 3*pi = 3*3.14, which is < 12. . Done.
