# Official confirmation from ETS of 15 pi for the circle question!

<p>I just got a letter from ETS stating the explanation to why the circle question is 15 pi, for those of you who were debating 8 pi or otherwise. The explanation is as follows:</p>

<p>The figure consists of one circle, referred to as "the largest circle," divided up into several regions. All of the regions are inside the largest circle. All but one of the regions are outside of the smallest circle. The only region not outside the smallest circle is the region inside the smallest circle. The total area of the regions inside the largest circle and outside the smallest circle is the area of the largest circle minus the area of the smallest circle. The correct answer is thus choice (E), 15 pi. </p>

<p>As a side note, for those of you who were debating 1/2 or 2 for the k/m question, the answer was (C), 1/2. If 1/k < 1/m < 0 and k = -2 and m = -4, then k/m = -2/-4 = 1/2.</p>

<p>Why did ETS send you a letter?</p>

<p>I inquired them via e-mail about the problem.</p>

<p>That was nice of them...</p>

<p>Pwned. I put 15Pi.</p>

<p>While I am unsure if this is authentic, I agree with the answer so...huzzah.</p>

<p>If you are unsure of the authenticity of this letter, I can scan a copy of it and send it to you via e-mail upon request.</p>

<p>some of my friends put 8pi</p>

<p>the ETS is a bunch of #<em>&@</em>()@&<em>_@&</em>@&<em>@&</em>@&*@</p>

<p>I hate them.</p>

<p>i pwned both of the questions, so that is cool.</p>

<p>That question seemed too easy to be true.</p>
