Question 44787: I need help with this question:
The expression Pi r^2 gives the area of a circle with radius r. How many square meters of wheat were destroyed when an alien ship made a crop circle of diameter 25 meters in the wheat field at the Southwest Ranch? Found 2 solutions by Nate, Chris435435:Answer by Nate(3500) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! They gave you the diameter of the circle in the question. The diameter of a circle is equivalent to twice its radius. That is: . We know from the question that the diameter of this crop circle is 25 meters. So let's plug that in to the formula and that'll give us the radius of the circle.
Now that we know the radius, which is 12.5 meters. Let's plug that into the formula for the area of the circle to get our answer:
You also could compute and leave alone. In that case,
