sir or ma,please help me figure-out a solution to this:(1)find the diameter of a circukar field whose area is 616m^2
(2)the volume of a cube is 512cm^3.find its total surface area.

"The area of a circular field is 616 m"
area = πr, where r is the radius
πr = 616
r = 616/π
r = √(616/π) = 196.1 m

diameter = 2r = 392.2 m
"The volume of a cube is 512 cm"
The length of an edge of the cube is ∛512 = 8 cm

Area of one face of the cube = 8 = 64 cm
A cube has six congruent faces, so the total surface area is 664 = 384 cm
