Similarly the circumference of the circle is 72/2 = 36 inches. Now recall the perimeter of the square: p = 36 inches. Thus C = 2 (pi) r = p.
Can you finish this?
Thanks a lot for the reply.
I still don't really get it though, I can't seem to get the answer given.
Area of the square = (p/4)^2
r of the circle = p/2pi
Area of the circle = pi(p/2pi)^2
Is that correct so far? Thus A would be area of square + area of circle right? That's where I get stuck, cos I can't seem to get the answer from there.
