# If the perimeter of a circle is equal to that of a square, then the ratio of their areas is

a. 22:7

b. 14:11

c. 7:22

d. 11:14

**Solution:**

Given, the __perimeter of a circle__ is equal to that of a square.

We have to find the ratio of their areas.

Perimeter of circle = circumference.

__Circumference of circle__ = 2πr

Where, r is the radius

__Perimeter of square__ = 4a

Where a is the side length

Given, 2πr = 4a

r/a = 4/2π

r/a = 2/π ------------ (1)

__Area of circle__ = πr²

Area of square = a²

Now, area of circle/area of square = πr²/a²

Substitute (1) in the above expression,

= π(2/π)²

= 4/π

= 4(7)/22

= 28/22

= 14/11

Therefore, the ratio of the area of circle to the __area of square__ is 14:11

**✦ Try This:** If the perimeter of square is 44 cm, find the area of the circle whose circumference is equal to the perimeter of square.

Given, perimeter of square = 44 cm

Perimeter of square = circumference of circle

We have to find the area of the circle.

Circumference of circle = 2πr

44 = 2(22/7)r

44 = 44r/7

r = 7 cm

Area of the circle = πr²

= (22/7)(49)

= 22(7)

= 154 square cm.

Therefore, the area of the circle is 154 square cm.
