If I had a 12' circle, how big of a square I could fit in it ?

Draw 2 diameters. They are perpendicular. Since a square has equal length sides, you can find the length of one side by using the Pythagorean theorem.
s = square root of (6^2 + 6^2) = 8.485 ft.

Thank you.. I kinda guessed about 8'. Not exact.. Next time I'm using PEMDAS

You don't know either... About 8' is the consensus... When I get my radius calculator back.. I'll get back to you

The math is exact to 3 decimal places.. The answer is the square root of 72 by the Pythagorean Theorem.

How difficult is it to calculate that the radius of the circle is 6 feet?

6?6,?i don't know. please,enlighten me. i've never had a good way of learning and working with numbers. so any questions like this one always compel me to learn the answer.

First what does the 106 stand for

Who are you asking to enlighten you?

@askdroop,oh,the 106? well,it's a little personal. i guess it'd be o.k. to tell.only you though. it's only my apt. number. sorry,i'm feeling kind of silly tonight. but i do mean it when i ask you to enlighten me. i have an odd fascination with maths. probably because i was never good with numbers.

@29and29, i was originally asking askdroop;now i just want an answer from anybody that will give it up.

This is a plane geometry problem. Draw a circle. Draw any diameter to the circle. Bisect the diameter you have just drawn with another diameter perpendicular to the first diameter. If you connect the four points where the two diameters intercept the circle, you will have drawn four chords which are the sides of the square. You now have four right triangles whose hypoteneuses are the square. The length of any side is found by taking the square root of the sum of the 2 radii squared.

Thanks for the answers my secret fort inside a silo didn't fit... I hope you realized I was joking... The question was about dead grass from one of them bigger blow up pools...
