**(c)** The perimeter of the square is equal to \(20\mbox{ cm}\). What is the value of \(x\)?

**(d) **Calculate the area of the shape below.

A circle has a *diameter* of \(10\mbox{ cm}\).

Calculate the circle’s:

**(e)** radius

**(f)** circumference

**(g)** area

by using \(3.14\) as an approximation for \(\pi\) where necessary.

The circumference of a particular circle is \(x\mbox{ cm}\) and the area of that same circle is \(x\mbox{ cm}^2\).

**(h)** What is the radius of the circle?

**(i)** What is the value of \(x\)?

Answers

**(a) **\((x-2)^2\mbox{ cm}^2\)

**(b)** \(4x-8\mbox{ cm}\)
