Text Solution

What is known?

Radius or diameter of the circles.

What is unknown?

The Area of the circles.

Reasoning:

In this question, radius (or diameter) of the circle is given. Put the value of the radius in the formula of area of the circle to find out the area.

Steps:

(a) Given,

Radius of the circle \(= 14 \,\rm mm\)

Area of circle

\[\begin{align}&= \pi {r^2}\\&= \frac{{22}}{7} \times 14 \times 14\\&= 22 \times 2 \times 14\\&= 616\;\rm m{m^2}\end{align}\]

(b) Given,

Diameter of the circle \(= 49 \,\rm m\)

Therefore, radius \(= 24.5 \,\rm m\)

Area of circle

\[\begin{align}&= \pi {r^2}\\&= \frac{{22}}{7} \times 24.5 \times 24.5\\&= 22 \times 24.5 \times 3.5\\&= 1886.5\;\rm {m^2}\end{align}\]

(c) Given,

Radius of the circle \(= 5 \,\rm cm\)

Area of circle

\[\begin{align}&= \pi {r^2}\\&= \frac{{22}}{7} \times 5 \times 5\\ &= \frac{{550}}{7}\\&= 78.57\;\rm c{m^2}\end{align}\]
