6 Where to start? A plan for problem-solving: Ask yourself what you need to solve the problem. Sometimes write down a verbal plan or draw a sketch that will help you find out what you want to know.Label the known and unknown facts.Use labels and facts to choose related definitions, theorems, formulas, or other results you may need.Reason through to link the facts.Write a conclusion that answers the original problem. Check that your answer is logical.
7 Example 1:A circular compact disc fits exactly in a square box with sides 12 centimeters long. Find the diameter, radius, circumference, and area of the compact disc, and the perimeter and area of the box. Why would it be helpful for you to know these dimensions?12 cm.
