    MarkFL replied to a thread Radius of Circle in Pre-Calculus
    Let's let $0<a$ be the number units the radius must be increased. And so the change in area we can write as: \Delta A=\pi(r+a)^2-\pi r^2=b Now...

    \overline{MK}=\sqrt{(\sqrt{2}a)^2+(\sqrt{2}b)^2}=\sqrt{2\left(a^2+b^2\right)}=\sqrt{2(50)}=\sqrt{100}=10 :D

    I arbitrarily chose another point on the constraint, so that we could do a comparison like I mentioned just now in the other thread. :D
