Kaitlin is choosing between two circular wall clocks. One has a radius of 5 inches while the other has a radius of 6 inches. How much more wall space will the clock with a radius of 6 inches cover?


  1. Answer:
    34.5 sq in
    Step-by-step explanation:
    A = πr²
    find the difference between the area of the larger clock versus the smaller
    36π – 25π = 11π
    11π ≈ 34.5

  2. Answer:
    Step-by-step explanation:
    So if you’re looking for the circumference, you would multiply the diameter x pi. To get the diameter, you multiply the radius by 2.
    So for the first clock you would multiply 5×2 which is 10, then multiply that by pi.=31
    The next on 6×2 which is 12 then multiply by pi.=37
    so then once you get the answers for both subtract and thats your answer.
