The solution is 8=r

Step-by-step explanation:

When the question states, “What is the distance from the edge of the dart board to the exact center of the bullseye (to the nearest inch),” it is basically asking to find the radius rounded to the nearest whole number given the circumference quantity.

Thus, we need to substitute the numbers already given into the radius equation.

53.3=2 x 3.14 x r

Now, divide both sides by 3.14.

16.97=2r

Again, use division property of equality and divide both sides of the equation by 2.

8.4=r … then rounding to the nearest inch… 8=r

All things said, the solution is 8=r

I hope this helped!!
