EXAMPLE 1 Using Radius to Find Circumference Find the circumference of a circle with a radius of 11 meters. SOLUTION C = 2πr Circumference formula 2(3.14)(11) Substitute 3.14 for π and 11 for r. = 69.08 Multiply. ANSWER The circumference is about meters.

. 213 EXAMPLE 2 Using Diameter to Find Circumference
Find the circumference of the circle. SOLUTION The measure shown is a diameter, so use the circumference formula that involves the diameter. C = πd Circumference formula 22 71 . 213 Substitute. Use for π because 21 is divisible by 7. 22 7 = 66 Multiply ANSWER The circumference is about 66 feet.

Standardized Test Practice
EXAMPLE 3 Standardized Test Practice SOLUTION You are asked to find the diameter, so use the circumference formula that involves diameter. C = πd Circumference formula d Substitute for C and 3.14 for π. = 3.14d Divide each side by 3.14. 135 = d Simplify. ANSWER The diameter is about 135 feet. The correct answer is C.
