Q:
# A circle has diameter 9 cmA square has side length 5 cmShow that the square will fit inside the circle without touching the edges

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:See below Step-by-step explanation:The diameter of the circle is 9 cm.
The largest dimension of a square is its diagonal.
d² = s² + s² = 2s²
If the side length equals 5 cm,
d² = 2 × 5² = 2 × 25 = 50
d = √50 ≈ 7.1 cm
Thus, the square has plenty of room to fit inside the circle.
