11-97.

The approximate surface areas of the seven Earth continents are shown in the table at right. If the radius of the Earth’s moon is approximately $1080$ miles, how would its surface area compare with the size of the continents?

 Continent Area (sq. miles) Asia $17\text{,}212\text{,}048.1$ Africa $11\text{,}608\text{,}161.4$ North America $9\text{,}365\text{,}294.0$ South America $6\text{,}879\text{,}954.4$ Antarctica $5\text{,}100\text{,}023.4$ Europe $3\text{,}837\text{,}083.3$ Australia/Oceania $2\text{,}967\text{,}967.3$

See the Math Notes box from Lesson 11.2.2 for extra help.

The surface area of the moon is $14\text{,}657\text{,}414.7\text{ mi}^2$.
