Finding Circumference


Key Ideas:

Circumference is the distance around a circle (it is like the perimeter of the circle)



To estimate the circumference:

 we would use C = 3 X diameter or C = 6 X radius



To find an better or more exact value for circumference we use:

C space equals space straight pi space cross times space straight d

Circumference = 3.14 X diameter


C space equals space straight pi space cross times space 2 space cross times space straight r space space space left parenthesis but space math space people space like space to space write space this space as space straight C space equals space 2 πr right parenthesis

Circumference = 3.14 x 2 x radius
