### Related Information

Question:

A
62.80 feet.

explanation

To find the amount of fencing Howard needs to enclose the border of the circular wrestling ring, we need to calculate the circumference of the ring. The circumference of a circle can be found using the formula:

Circumference = π * diameter where π (pi) is a mathematical constant approximately equal to 3.14159.

Given that the diameter of the circular arena is 20 ft, we can calculate the circumference as follows:

Circumference = π * 20 ft ≈ 3.14159 * 20 ft ≈ 62.8318 ft

Therefore, Howard needs approximately 62.8318 feet of fencing to make the border of the wrestling ring.
