Answer:(2) 2,640 ft

Step-by-step explanation:I’m going to assume that in this question, you are walking 1 full circle around the reservoir. That would mean you need to calculate the circumference of the circular reservoir.

The circumference formula is:

C = ⫪d

C stands for Circumference

d stands for diameter

I will use 22/7 instead of pi, so the formula looks more like this:

C = (22/7)(d)

The diameter is 840 feet, so we will substitute the variable d with 840:

C = (22/7)(840)

You can plug this part into the calculator, but by hand, it’ll look something like this:

(22/7)*840 = (22*840)/7

18,480/7 = 2.640
