Question from Riley, a student:

How do you find the perimeter of a quarter circle when the radius is 56?

Hi Riley,

What is the perimeter (circumference) of a circle of radius 56 units? The one quarter sector of the circle has a perimeter made up of two radii and one quarter of the circumference of the circle. What is its perimeter?
