The circumscribing square has sides of length 155 cm.

The inscribed square has diagonals of 155 cm and so has sides of 155/sqrt(2) cm.

The sides of a circumscribing square is always larger than those of the inscribed square by sqrt(2) = 1.4142 (approx).

The area of a circumscribing square is always larger twice as large as that of the inscribed square.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How do you find the gap of one cirlcle in a larger circle?

What A circle with a radius of 3 cm shares a center with another circle that has a radius of 5 cm. Find the probability that a randomly selected point is in the larger circle but not in the smaller ci?

We can look at total areas (and ignore units-they're all the same). The smaller circle has an area of 9pi, and the larger circle has an area of 25pi. The smaller circle is entirely inside of the larger circle. So anything not in the smaller circle is in the larger circle. 16pi square centimeters are part of only the larger circle. 16pi/25pi=.64. So the desired probability is .64.

How do you play

Depending on what you are playing the game on but it's pretty self explanatory. You move your circle around to other smaller ones to get bigger, but avoid larger circle that are bigger than yours because they can eat you. Consume circles that are smaller than you and once you are larger than a circle you can eat it and you will notice that your circle will get much larger after time.

How can you find minimum and maximum diameters?

-- Every circle has a diameter of some size. -- All of the diameters that you can draw in the same circle are the same size. -- The smaller the circle is, the smaller its diameter is. There's no minimum size. -- The larger the circle is, the larger its diameter is. There's no maximum size.

What is the difference between inscribed and circumscribed in integration?

When rectangles are inscribed, they lie entirely inside the area you're calculating. They never cross over the curve that bounds the area. Circumscribed rectangles cross over the curve and lie partially outside of the area. Circumscribed rectangles always yield a larger area than inscribed rectangles.

if the radius is a third then the area is a ninth 60.84 x 1/32 = 6.76 timmespi (if that's 'times pi' then) 6.76/pi = 2.15

Whick works better a square triangle or circle parachute?

The best shape for a parachute is a circle. This is because the circle will have a larger area that will cause more drag to slow the parachute.
