Given: circular merry-go-round that has a diameter of 15 feet. Find: How much trim does he need to buy to put around the edge of the merry-go-round? We need to find the circumference of the merry-go-round to get the measurement of the trim needed. Circumference = π d π = 3.14 d = diameter = 15 feet Circumference = 3.14 * 15 feet Circumference = 47.10 feet. Mr. Osterhout needs to buy 47.10 feet of trim to put around the circular merry-go-round.
