A circle is inscribed in a square with a perimeter of 120. Find the area of the circle.
If the square's perimeter is 120, then each side is 30. Each side of the square is the circle's diameter, or twice the radius. That means the radius is 15, and the area of a circle is Pi* r^2. If r = 15, then the area of the circle is 225*(pi)
Jim and Jane collect baseball cards. She has three less than twice as many as he does. If together they have 21 cards, how many of them are Jane's?
Let Jim's cards = x If Jim = x, then Jane = 2x-3 Total x + 2x - 3 = 21 3x - 3 = 21 Add 3 to both sides 3x - 3 + 3 = 21 + 3 3x = 24 Divide by 3 3x / 3 = 24 / 3 x = 8 (Jim) 2x-3 = 13 (JANE) The answer is 13 baseball cards.
