# If the circumference of a circle and the perimeter of a square are equal, then

(A) Area of the circle = Area of the square

(B) Area of the circle > Area of the square

(C) Area of the circle < Area of the square

(D) Nothing definite can be said about the relation between the areas of the circle and square

**Solution:**

Given, the __circumference of a circle__ and the perimeter of a square are equal.

We have to find the relation between the areas of the circle and square.

Circumference of circle = 2πr

Where, r is the radius

__Perimeter of square__ = 4a

Where a is the side length

Given, 2πr = 4a

πr = 2a

(22/7)r = 2a

r = (2a)(7/22)

r = a(7/11)

r = 7a/11

Also, a = 11r/7

__Area of circle__, A₁ = πr²

= (22/7)(7a/11)²

= (22/7)(49a²/121)

= (2/7)(49a²/11)

= (2)(7a²/11)

A₁ = 14a²/11

__Area of square__, A₂ = a₂

So, A₁ = (14/11)A₂

This implies A₁ > A₂

Therefore, area of circle > area of square.

**✦ Try This:** The radius of a circle whose circumference is equal to 110 cm is

Given, circumference of circle is 110 cm

We have to find the radius of the circle.

Circumference of circle = 2πr

110 = 2(22/7)r

110 = 44r/7

r = 110(7)/44

r = 5(7)/2

r = 35/2

r = 17.5 cm

Therefore, the radius of circle is 17.5 cm
