2pi R = 5.50

Therefore, R = 5.50/2*7/22 = 0.875 Find R^2 = 0.7656

So, Surface area = 4 PI R^2 = 9.625 Sq M.

Cost of finishing a sphere = 92* 4 PI R^2 = 92 * 9.625 = 885 So Approx. $900

Find the same way for other circumference of 7.85M

On the Integrated Reasoning section, you have access to a calculator.

So just solve the formula for radius of the sphere first.

If you know circumference as 5.50 meters, then pi * d = 5.50

d = 5.50 / 3.14
d = 1.75

Since radius is half the diameter, radius is 0.876.

Now we have to solve for surface area then multiply by cost / square meter.

Surface area is 4pi*r^2

4 * 3.14 * 0.876 * 0.876 = 9.636

$92 / square meter

OK so $92 / sq meter * 9.636 square meters = $886.5

After some rounding that is $900 so that is the best answer for the first column.
