Sam has baked a circular cake.  The cake has a diameter of 10 inches.  Sam needs to know how much icing it will take to cover the top of the cake, which of the following was does Sam need to use to figure this out?

• A.

10 x 3.14

• B.

5 x 2 x 3.14

• C.

C. 5 x 5 x 3.14
Explanation

Rate this question:

• 6.

Molly is making pizza for supper and wants to cover the top of the pizza with sauce.  She has measured the radius of the pizza to be 5 inches, how many square inches will the sauce cover?

• A.

31.4 inches squared

• B.

78.5 inches squared

• C.

15.7 inches squared

B. 78.5 inches squared
Explanation
The correct answer is 78.5 inches squared. To find the area of the top of the pizza, we need to use the formula for the area of a circle, which is A = πr^2. Given that the radius of the pizza is 5 inches, we can substitute this value into the formula to get A = π(5^2) = π(25) = 78.5 inches squared.

Pam's mom is fixing cookies for her class.  She wants to put icing on the cookies.  The radius of the cookies is 2 inches.  She is making 20 cookies, what is the area that the icing will cover if she icings all 20 cookies?

• A.

251.2 inches squared

• B.

125.6 inches squared

• C.

12.56 inches squared

A. 251.2 inches squared
• 8.

A cicular stool needs to be covered with new fabric.  If the diameter of the stool is 2 feet, how much material is needed to cover the stool?

• A.

12.56 feet squared

• B.

6.28 feet squared

• C.

3.14 feet squared

C. 3.14 feet squared
Explanation
The correct answer is 3.14 feet squared. To calculate the amount of fabric needed to cover the circular stool, we need to find the area of the circle. The formula for the area of a circle is A = πr^2, where A is the area and r is the radius. In this case, the diameter of the stool is given as 2 feet, so the radius is 1 foot. Plugging this value into the formula, we get A = 3.14 * 1^2 = 3.14 feet squared. Therefore, 3.14 feet squared of fabric is needed to cover the stool.

Rate this question:

• 9.

The radius is always half of the diameter.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The statement is true because the radius of a circle is defined as the distance from the center of the circle to any point on its circumference. The diameter, on the other hand, is the distance across the circle passing through the center. Since the diameter is twice the length of the radius, it follows that the radius is always half of the diameter.

Rate this question:

• 10.

The chord is the longest diameter in a circle.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement is false because a chord is not the longest diameter in a circle. A diameter is a chord that passes through the center of the circle, and it is always longer than any other chord in the circle. Therefore, the longest diameter in a circle is the one that passes through the center, not any other chord.
