1 4.4 Area and Circumference 4.4 OBJECTIVES 1. Use p to find the circumference of a circle 2. Use p to find the area of a circle 3. Find the area of a parallelogram 4. Find the area of a triangle 5. Convert square units In Section 4.2, we again looked at the perimeter of a straight-edged figure. The distance around the outside of a circle is closely related to this concept of perimeter. We call the perimeter of a circle the circumference. Definitions: Circumference of a Circle The circumference of a circle is the distance around that circle. Radius O d Diameter Circumference Figure 1 Let s begin by defining some terms. In the circle of Figure 1, d represents the diameter. This is the distance across the circle through its center (labeled with the letter O, for origin). The radius r is the distance from the center to a point on the circle. The diameter is always twice the radius. It was discovered long ago that the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter always stays the same. The ratio has a special name. It is named by the Greek letter p (pi). 22 Pi is approximately, or 3.14 rounded to two decimal places. We can write the following 7 formula. NOTE The formula comes from the ratio C d p 4.5 ft Figure 2 Rules and Properties: C pd (1) Example 1 Finding the Circumference of a Circle Formula for the Circumference of a Circle A circle has a diameter of 4.5 ft, as shown in Figure 2. Find its circumference, using 3.14 for p. If your calculator has a p key, use that key instead of a decimal approximation for p. 341

2 342 CHAPTER 4 DECIMALS NOTE Because 3.14 is an approximation for pi, we can only say that the circumference is approximately 14.1 ft. The symbol means approximately. By Formula (1), C pd ft 14.1 ft (rounded to one decimal place) CHECK YOURSELF 1 NOTE If you want to approximate p, you needn t worry about running out of decimal places. The value for pi has been calculated to over 100,000,000 decimal places on a computer (the printout was some 20,000 pages long). A circle has a diameter of 3 1 inches (in.). Find its circumference. 2 Note: In finding the circumference of a circle, you can use whichever approximation for pi you choose. If you are using a calculator and want more accuracy, use the p key. There is another useful formula for the circumference of a circle. NOTE Because d 2r (the diameter is twice the radius) and C pd, we have C p(2r), or C 2pr. Rules and Properties: Formula for the Circumference of a Circle C 2pr (2) Example 2 Finding the Circumference of a Circle A circle has a radius of 8 in., as shown in Figure 3. Find its circumference using 3.14 for p. 8 in. Figure 3 From Formula (2), C 2pr in in. (rounded to one decimal place) CHECK YOURSELF 2 Find the circumference of a circle with a radius of 2.5 in.

3 AREA AND CIRCUMFERENCE SECTION Sometimes we will want to combine the ideas of perimeter and circumference to solve a problem. Example 3 Finding Perimeter We wish to build a wrought-iron frame gate according to the diagram in Figure 4. How many feet (ft) of material will be needed? NOTE The distance around the semicircle is 1 2 pd. 5 ft 4 ft Figure 4 The problem can be broken into two parts. The upper part of the frame is a semicircle (half a circle). The remaining part of the frame is just three sides of a rectangle. NOTE Using a calculator with a p key, 1 2 p 5 Circumference (upper part) ft 7.9 ft 2 Perimeter (lower part) ft Adding, we have ft We will need approximately 20.9 ft of material. CHECK YOURSELF 3 Find the perimeter of the following figure. 6 yd 8 yd The number pi (p), which we used to find circumference, is also used in finding the area of a circle. If r is the radius of a circle, we have the following formula.

4 344 CHAPTER 4 DECIMALS Rules and Properties: Formula for the Area of a Circle NOTE This is read, Area equals pi r squared. You can multiply the radius by itself and then by pi. A pr 2 (3) Example 4 Find the Area of a Circle A circle has a radius of 7 inches (in.) (see Figure 5). What is its area? 7 in. Figure 5 Use Formula (3), using 3.14 for p and r 7 in. A 3.14 (7 in.) in. 2 Again the area is an approximation because we use 3.14, an approximation for p. CHECK YOURSELF 4 Find the area of a circle whose diameter is 4.8 centimeters (cm). Remember that the formula refers to the radius. Use 3.14 for p, and round your result to the nearest tenth of a square centimeter. Two other figures that are frequently encountered are parallalograms and triangles. B C h A b D Figure 6 In Figure 6 ABCD is called a parallelogram. Its opposite sides are parallel and equal. Let s draw a line from D that forms a right angle with side BC. This cuts off one corner of the parallelogram. Now imagine that we move that corner over to the left side of the figure, as shown. This gives us a rectangle instead of a parallelogram. Because we haven t changed the area of the figure by moving the corner, the parallelogram has the same area as the rectangle, the product of the base and the height.

5 AREA AND CIRCUMFERENCE SECTION Rules and Properties: Formula for the Area of a Parallelogram A b h (4) Example 5 Finding the Area of a Parallelogram A parallelogram has the dimensions shown in Figure 7. What is its area? 1.8 in. 3.2 in. Figure 7 Use Formula (4), with b 3.2 in. and h 1.8 in. A b h 3.2 in. 1.8 in in. 2 CHECK YOURSELF 5 If the base of a parallelogram is 3 1 in. and its height is 1 1 in., what is its area? 2 2 Another common geometric figure is the triangle. It has three sides. An example is triangle ABC in Figure 8. B D A h b Figure 8 C b is the base of the triangle. h is the height, or the altitude, of the triangle. Once we have a formula for the area of a parallelogram, it is not hard to find the area of a triangle. If we draw the dotted lines from B to D and from C to D parallel to the sides of the triangle, we form a parallelogram. The area of the triangle is then one-half the area of the parallelogram [which is b h by Formula (4)].

6 346 CHAPTER 4 DECIMALS Rules and Properties: Formula for the Area of a Triangle A 1 2 b h (5) Example 6 Finding the Area of a Triangle A triangle has an altitude of 2.3 in., and its base is 3.4 in. (see Figure 9). What is its area? 2.3 in. 3.4 in. Figure 9 Use Formula (5), with b 3.4 in. and h 2.3 in. A 1 2 b h in. 2.3 in in.2 2 CHECK YOURSELF 6 A triangle has a base of 10 feet (ft) and an altitude of 6 ft. Find its area. Sometimes we will want to convert from one square unit to another. For instance, look at 1 yd 2 in Figure yd = 3 ft 1 yd = 9 ft 1 yd = 3 ft NOTE Originally the acre was the area that could be plowed by a team of oxen in a day! Figure 10 The table below gives some useful relationships. Square Units and Equivalents 1 square foot (ft 2 ) 144 square inches (in. 2 ) 1 square yard (yd 2 ) 9 ft 2 1 acre 4840 yd 2 43,560 ft 2

7 AREA AND CIRCUMFERENCE SECTION Example 7 Converting Between Feet and Yards in Finding Area A room has the dimensions 12 ft by 15 ft. How many square yards of linoleum will be needed to cover the floor? 12 NOTE We first find the area in square feet, then convert to square yards. A 12 ft 15 ft 180 ft yd ft 2 9 ft 2 20 yd 2 CHECK YOURSELF 7 A hallway is 27 ft long and 4 ft wide. How many square yards of carpeting will be needed to carpet the hallway? Example 8 illustrates the use of a common unit of area, the acre. Example 8 Converting Between Yards and Acres in Finding Area A rectangular field is 220 yd long and 110 yd wide. Find its area in acres. A 220 yd 110 yd 24,200 yd ,200 yd acres CHECK YOURSELF 8 acre yd 2 A proposed site for an elementary school is 220 yd long and 198 yd wide. Find its area in acres.
