A thin piece of wire 40 meters long is cut into two pieces. One piece is used to form a circle with radius r, and the other is used to form a square. No wire is left over. Which of the following represents the total area, in square meters, of the circular and the square regions in terms of r?
A) xr^2
B) xr^2 + 10
C) (pie)r^2 + /frac{1}{4}(pie)^2r^2
D) (pie)r^2 + (40-2(pie)r)^2
E) (pie)r^2 + (10 - frac{1}{2} (pie)r)^2

Length of the circular piece = 2\pir
Other piece = 40 - 2\pir

Side of Square = \frac{(40 - 2\pi r)}{4} \Rightarrow Area = (10 - \frac{1}{2} \pi r)^2

Length of the circular piece = Circumference of Circle = 2\pir \Rightarrow Area = \pi r^2


Answer is E

Agree with E.

Same method, same answer.
