# If the radius of a circle is tripled, the area becomes

(a) 9 times

(b) 3 times

(c) 6 times

(d) 30 times

**Solution:**

Given, radius of a circle is tripled

We have to find the increase in area

Area of circle = πr²

Where, r is the radius of circle

Given, r = 3r

So, area = π(3r)²

= 9πr²

Therefore, the area of circle increases by 9 times

**✦ Try This: **If the radius of a circle is doubled, the area becomes

Given, radius of a circle is doubled

We have to find the increase in area

Area of circle = πr²

Where, r is the radius of circle

Given, r = 2r

So, area = π(2r)²

= 4πr²

Therefore, the area of circle increases by 4 times
