CIRCUMFERENCE

The circumference of a circle is

The distance around a circle

Hint: Circumference remember circle around

### First we must define some things about a circle.

The radius is the distance from the center of a circle to any point on a circle.

Hint: define it as halfway through!

The diameter is the distance across a circle through the center.

We use Pi as the measurement to help us find the circumference of a circle.

Pi, not Pie!

HINT: Pi =3.14

Two formulas are used in finding the circumference of a circle.

WHEN THE CIRCLE HAS A DIAMETER MEASUREMENT, USE THE FOLLOWING FORMULA.

Circumference = d

4in.

3.14 x 4in.

12.6in.

When the radius of a circle is given, the following formula should be used.

Circumference = 2 r

2 x 3.14 x 5cm

31.4cm

NOW…Let’s have some fun.

Tell me what formula would be used to solve the next five problems.

3in

C = 2 x 3.14 x r

8ft

C = 3.14 d

122mm

C = 2 x 3.14 x d

17.5 cm

C = 3.14 x d

122.5mm

C = 2 x 3.14 x r

Now that we have determined the correct formula for each, let’s work the problems.

3in

C = 2 x 3.14 x r

8ft

C = 3.14 d

122mm

C = 2 x 3.14 x d

17.5 cm

C = 3.14 x d
