Because the cord was extended to its full length at all items, the dog ran along a semi-circular path, from north to south.

The circumference of a full circle is 2*pi*r, but since we only care about the length of half the circle, the semi-circle path is pi*r.

pi*r = 30. Round pi = 3, then r = 10.

Chord is about 10 feet long.

the dog runs from the due North side of the tree to the due South side of the tree with the cord extended to its full length at all times. This means that dog ran in semi - circle or 180 degree sector is create.

We know that length of arc = (\(\frac{central angle}{360}\) ) * 2* PI * r
therefore, = \(\frac{180}{360}\)* 2* PI * r = 30

=> PI * r = 30
3.142 * r = 30

r= 10 (approx)
