    Scott needs to buy 50.24 feet of fencing

    Solution:

    Given that,

    Scott wants to buy fencing to place around a circular rock garden

    The diameter of the circle is 16 feet

    The amount of fencing Scott will need to buy is equal to the circumference of circular garden

    The circumference of circle is given as:

    C = \pi d

    Where, “d” is the circumference of circle

    From given,

    d = 16 feet

    Therefore,

    C = 3.14 \times 16\\\\C = 50.24

    Thus, Scott needs to buy 50.24 feet of fencing
