Circumference = 6/3*1*8/.125*1.57*2*R

Seems to me like hoy boy doesn't know how to reduce his fractions down properly. He'd have a helluva problem w/ trig, analytical geometry or calculus - lol.
BTW, did anyone notice that the thread was titled area of a circle piR*R - but then they asked for circumference?? 2piR or piD!

Hey, did you all hear about the little Indian boy that wanted a bride? He was going to buy two brides, but all he had to buy them was his pet hippopatamus(sp?). Anyway, he bargained with the Chief for his two daughters who lived on the other side of the river.. In fact, he argued that "The sum of the hippopatamus is equal to the sum of the Squaws on the other side."
