Q:
# Cory has a square piece of wood that is 4.5 feet by 4.5 feet. He wants to make a circular tabletop out of it. What is the area of the largest circle that he can cut out of the wood? Round to the nearest tenth.

Accepted Solution

A:

In this circle, the diameter is the same as the length of the side of the square. The diameter is 4.5 ft; so, the radius is 2.25 ft., so. A πr²= π(2.25)²=15.90 ft²
