Chapter 2, Problem 10P
To determine

To find: The function that models circumference C of circle in terms of its area A .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 10P

The function that models circumference C of circle in terms of its area A is C24π .

Explanation of Solution

The area of circle is,

A=πr2

Where r is radius of circle.

To model area in terms of circumference, calculate r in terms of C .

Circumference of a circle is,

C=2πrr=C2π

Summarize all the information in a table as shown below.

In Words In Algebra
Area πr2
Circumference 2πr
Radius C2π

Use the information in the table and model the function.

A=πr2=π(C2π)2=πC24π2=C24π

Hence, the function that models area of circle in terms of its circumference is C24π .
