    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

    Yes, we're still far and away the best math help forum on the web...that much hasn't changed. The arcade you played is relatively new, and that was a lot of work to put together. We now support TikZ images, and that was a lot of work as well. But, we're always open to suggestions if you think something needs to be changed.

Some of my notes on number theoretic topics are on a few primality tests and on Hardy & Littlewood's result (incomplete). The other articles are on quintics : about a brief description of Kiepert algorithm and a short introduction on quintic-solving algorithms, respectively. I have also written up an introductory thread on Riemann Hypothesis
