How do you go about finding radius from the circumference?


Answer by  worker1062 (22)

If the circumference is known, then radius of a circle is calculated by using a constant named as Pi. Circumference of a circle is always measured by multiplying the Pi constant with diameter. And since diameter is simply 2 times bigger than the radius, then we can find the radius of any given circle's circumference by dividing circumference by 2xPi.


Answer by  worker6728 (36)

The circumference of a circle is equal to 2 multiplied by pi multiplied by the radius (c=2*pi*r). So if you know the circumference, you can find the radius by dividing the circumference by both pi and 2. Pi is a constant that is equal to the fraction 22/7.


Answer by  AppleSauce (140)

The circumference of a circle is equal to C=2(pi)r so solving for radius from a known circumference involves simple algebra. r=(C/2(pi)) Radius is equal to the circumfrence of the circle divided by two times pi.


Answer by  esteban (1334)

Circumference is found by the formula C=2 * Pi * R. Where R is the radius and Pi is approximately equal to 3. 1416. So, in order to find the radius from the circumference, you use the formula R = C/(2*Pi). In other words, just divide the circumference by 2 times pi.


Answer by  alz (2329)

The formula for circumference is: 2(pi)(radius)=Circumference. Therefore, if you know the circumference, you plug that into the formula and the only variable you have left to solve for is radius.
