# The numerical value of the area of a circle is greater than the numerical value of its circumference. Is this statement true? Why

**Solution:**

Consider the __radius of the circle__ as r (0 < r < 2)

__Area of circle__ A = πr²

Where r is the radius

If r = 1.5

A = π × 1.5²

A = 2.25π

We know that

__Circumference of the circle__ C = 2πr

Substituting the values

C = 2 × π × 1.5

C = 3π

Here C > A

Area of a circle is not always greater than the circumference.

Therefore, the statement is false.

**✦ Try This:** If the circumference and the area of a circle are numerically equal, then what is the numerical value of the diameter?
