C  = 2r  +  205.44    (1)  and  C  =  2 * 314 * r     (2)

 

Set (1)  =  (2)   and we have that

 

2r + 205.44  =  2 * 3.14 * r     simplify the right side

 

2r + 205.44  =  6.28r       subtract  2r from each side

 

205.44  =  4.28r       divide both sides by  4.28

 

48  =  r      [ the radius is 48 ft ]
