True or False
Will it be true to say that the perimeter of a square circumscribing a circle of radius a cm is 8a cm? Give reasons for your answer.
This statement is True.
Let r be the radius of circle = a cm
∴ Diameter of the circle = d = 2 × Radius = 2a cm
As the circle is inscribed in the square, therefore,
Side of a square = Diameter of circle = 2a cm
Hence, Perimeter of a square = 4 × (side) = 4 × 2a = 8a cm
