# Is the area of the circle inscribed in a square of side a cm, πa² cm²? Give reasons for your answer

**Solution:**

Let us consider a circle inscribed in a__ square__

Here the __radius of the circle__ which is inscribed inside a square of sides a cm is r = a/2

We know that

__Area of circle__ = πr²

Where r is the radius

= π(a/2)²

= πa²/4 cm² ≠ πa² cm²

Therefore, the statement is false.

**✦ Try This:** Find the area of a circle that can be inscribed in a square of side 8 cm.
