Pleased to Meet You Five people meet in a room. Each one shakes hands with the other four. How many handshakes are there? (Hint: Draw a picture)
Pleased to Meet You There are a total of 10 handshakes. Draw five circles to represent the five people. Since each handshake is created by two people, draw lines between each of the circles to represent the handshakes. Then, count the lines to find that there are a total of 10 handshakes.
Geometry: Circles and Circumference Lesson 6-9
Circles A circle is the set of all points in a plane that are the same distance from a given point, called the center.
The diameter (d) is the distance across a circle through the center of the circle. The radius (r) is the distance from the center to any point on the circle. The circumference (C) is the distance around a circle.
Pi is a non-terminating and non-repeating number represented by the Greek letter (pi) 3.14 is often used as an approximation for.
Circles Formulas for finding Circumference C = d C = 2 r If you are given the diameter in a problem use the formula with d. If you are given a problem with the radius use the formula with r. Both formulas find the circumference.
Find Circumference 21 in Which formula for C will you use? C = 2 r C = 2 (21) C = inches
Your Turn Find the Circumference 4.5cm Which formula for C will you use? C = d C = (4.5) C = 14.1cm
Circles - Area Formula for finding the area of a circle: A = r If you are given the diameter instead of the radius; divide the diameter by 2 to get the radius. 2
Find the Area 14m D = 14 m r = ? 14 ÷ 2 = 7 m A = r A = (7 ) A = (49) A = m 2 2 2
Your Turn Find the Area 5 ft A = r A = (5 ) A = (25) A = 78.5 ft 2 2 2
