MathGiven that the area of the circle is A = 100pi cm^2. We know that the area of the circle IS : A = r^2 * pi = 100*pi ==> Divide by pi: ==> r^2 = 100 ==> r= 10 Now we will find the...

Law and PoliticsI assume that you are talking about Packer's models of the criminal justice system here. If so, the major difference between the two is in what they are each really trying to accomplish. The...

MathGiven that the average of (x , y, z and w ) = 25 Then we know that the average = sum of all numbers/ total of numbers ==> Ave = (x + y + z+w)/4 = 25 ==> multiply by 4: ==> x + y + z + w =...
