Re: In the formula above [#permalink]
The formula for a circular region is $$A=\pi*r^2$$. The one given has the diameter instead of the radius, but since we know that d = 2r, we can write

$$\pi*r^2 = \frac{\pi*(2r)^2}{x}$$, where d = 2r, then

$$\pi*r^2 = \frac{\pi*4r^2}{x}$$.

Thus, in order for the two formulas to be equal, x = 4. Answer E! Re: In the formula above   [#permalink] 29 Sep 2017, 07:03
