Diameter to Feet

Postby Jolly Ollie » Fri Nov 02, 2007 1:51 pm

What is the formula for a diameter measurement and converting it to feet? Example - There is a round 6 foot in diameter garden. A fabric barrier must be put around the edge of the garden. The fabric fabric is sold by the foot. How many feet of barrier do I need to purchase?

diameter x PI = circumference, so: 6 feet * 3.1415927 = 18.85 feet of barrier
