Phobus one of the satelites of Mars evolves about Mars at a daistance of approximately 5800 miles from the center of mars and approximately 3700 miles from surface of mars. If it is assumed that Mars is spherical and the orbit of Phobus is circular, what is the approximate circumference in miles of Mars at its equator

A. 2100 pie
B 4200 pie
C 7400 pie
D 9500 pie

2 x pi x (5800-3700) = B

radius = 5800 - 3700
= 2100

Circum = 2pi2100--->4200pi

another one for (B)
r = 2100
circumfrence = 2pi(r) = 4200pi = (B)

2 * pi * (5800 - 3700) = 4200 * pi (B)

B. (5100-3700) x 2 x pi = 4200 x pi
