Re: Problem re Area of a square inside a circle, inside a square?OK. Now I have a diagram. I have NOT attempted to make it accurately to scale ... just tried to make it look like the problem and put in red all the measurements. For the purposes of calculating wastage I've shaded in yellow one unit of steel from which a stamping can be made.

I think making that diagram may well be a part of the assessment. They've given you a part of the picture to get you started but they want to see if you can convert the rest of the information into a clear diagram. Even if that's not a requirement it's certainly the way I'd go with it because I find maths problems are easier for me once I have a picture of what I'm doing. I'd recommend it every time. Q19. How many yellow units will fit in 25 metres ? (ie. 2500 cm) Q20. I worked out for 25 metres worth and then divided by the answer to Q19. Then divide by answer to Q19. Give those a try and post back answers or ask for more help. Bob You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #6 20130130 01:19:33
