Cory is lining the top of a table with clear plastic. The table has a circumference of 4.71 feet. How many square feet of plastic will he need to cover the tabletop? Use 3.14 for π and round to the nearest tenth.
1.8 square feet of plastic.
We need to find the area of the table top
The radius of the table top can be found as
4.71 / ( 2*3.14) = .75 ft
The area = 3.14 (.75)^2 = 1.776 sq ft = 1.8 sq ft
