Diameter of circle = Side of square.
Let diameter be d and side be s.
Circumference = πd = 25π
So, d = 25 = s.
Perimeter = 4s = 100

πD = 25π => diameter is 25.
Therefore, side of square = 25.
Perimeter = 4*side = 100

Solution

Given:
• The circumference of a circle inscribed in a square is 25π

To find:
• The perimeter of the square

Approach and Working:
When a circle is inscribed in a square, the diameter of the circle is equal to the length of the side of the square If r is the radius of the circle, then
• 2πr = 25π
Or, 2r = 25

Therefore, we can say, length of the side of the square = 25
• Perimeter of the square = 25 * 4 = 100

Hence, the correct answer is option E.

We have the following: The perimeter of the circle = 25π

We can see that the perimeter of the square is GREATER THAN the perimeter of the circle

25π ≈ (25)(3) ≈ 75
So, the perimeter of the square is GREATER THAN 25π

Cheers,
Brent

When a circle is inscribed in a square, the diameter of the circle is equal to the side of the square.

Since circumference = πd, we have:

πd = 25π

d = 25 = side of the square

Thus, the perimeter of the square is 25 x 4 = 100.

 Find Diameter

Since the diameter of a circle is equal to the side of a square, finding the circle's diameter will allow us to calculate the square's perimeter.

$$Circumference = Diameter \times \pi$$

$$\frac{25\pi}{\pi} = Diameter$$

$$Diameter = 25$$

 Calculate Perimeter

$$Perimeter = 4 \times Side$$

$$Side \equiv Diameter$$

$$25\times 4 = 100$$

The perimeter of the circle = 25π

2πr = 25π
So r= 25/2 so Diameter = 2* 25/2 = 25

So the perimeter of the square = 4a = 4* 25 = 100 Re: If the circumference of a circle inscribed in a square is 25π, what is   [#permalink] 17 Jan 2020, 20:15
