A dime has a diameter of 17.91 millimeters. What is the area of the face of a dime? Use 3.14 for ππ. Round to the nearest hundredth if necessary.
Answer:251.8 in^2 ( rounded to the nearest hundred
What I did:
Since you only gave the diameter of 17.91 I had to divide the diameter by 2 which gave me 8.955 (the radius). Then to get the area I had to first multiply 8.955 (the radius) by itself which gave me 80.192025. Then I had to take 80.192025 and multiply it by 3.14 (π) which gave me 251.8029585 in^2.
