    (see attached solution file)

    is the number we multiply the diameter of a circle by to find the distance around the circle (the circumference). To get an idea of where this number comes from, try making a circle and putting a square of side length inside of it:

    If we draw lines from the center point to the corners of the square, they are all radii:

    By the Side-Side-Side postulate of geometry, we know that all 4 of these triangles ...
