    Hm. you could wait a couple of days and go through the hassle to measure it. OR, we could do some math and figure it out RIGHT NOW! how exciting! It's math time!

    A roundpen is a circle. We know the circumference of the circle:

    14 gates x 12 feet each = 168 feet, add 5ish feet for walk-through gate, we have a circumference of 173 feet

    Now we do some simple algebra.

    The formula for finding diameter is C = 3.14 x d

    so

    173 = 3.14 x d

    173 / 3.14 = d

    173/3.14 = 55.09

    BINGO!!

    Countryacres' roundpen is approximately 55 feet in diameter.

    :)

    Thank you for the math. You make it sound so easy. I never was good at math when I was in school let alone now that I am out of school. lol
