Question

The seventh-grade class is building target areas for a PE activity. The bases for the game will be in a circular shape. The diameter of each circle is 3 feet. Approximately, how many square feet of the turf need to be painted for a base circle? Use 3.14 for π and round your answer to the nearest tenth.

    Answer:

    7.1 feet^2

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The base is made of a circular shape, so to solve this question we need to know how to calculate the circle area. The formula for the circle area is π  * r^2 so we need to find the radius(r). Radius equal to half of the diameter and the diameter needed is 3 feet, then the area of the circle will be:

    area = π  * r^2

    area = 3.14 * (3/2 feet)^2

    area = 7.065 feet^2 = 7.1 feet^2
