19. The population of Charlton was 7200. It decreased by 75 each year for 5 years. What was the population of Charlton after 5 years?
PART II: PRACTICAL APPLICATION
Directions: Estimate the value of π.
Background: In Section 9.3 of your textbook, the circumference and diameter of a can are used to show that the constant, π, is equal to the ratio C/d. We will verify that this is true by calculating the values of C/d for circles of different sizes.
1. Use the string to measure the circumference of each circle on the next page. Place one end of the string anywhere on the circle, and carefully lay the string around the circle till you reach the starting point. Mark the ending point on the string, then use a ruler to measure the length of the string that is marked. Record this measurement in the table below. In addition, you may measure the circumference and diameter of any cylindrical object, like a soda can or roll of paper towels.
2. Next, use a ruler to measure the diameter of each circle. Make sure you measure the diameter at the widest part of the circle. Record this measurement in the table also. Round to the nearest inch.
3. When you have completed all your measurements, use a calculator to compute the ratio C/d for each circle. Round your answers to 2 decimal places, and write the results in the table on the previous page.
4. Now, let’s analyze the ratios C/d. Compare the values of C/d for all the circles. Be sure to use complete sentences to answer all the questions in this step.
Are the ratios the same?
If not, how much do they differ by?
What could be the reasons for any differences?
5. Calculate the average of the ratios, C/d, in your table, and write this value below.
Average value of C/d = __________
Conclusion: By measuring several circles, you have verified that the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter is a constant. This ratio is called π, and is approximately equal to 3.14.
PART III: JOURNAL ACTIVITY
Directions: Write a page about the benefits of understanding perimeter, area, and volume. Give examples of when you have needed to know or use any of these. Think of or find uses of the Pythagorean Theorem.
