How do you figure out the area of a circle?
The area of a circle is the amount of space enclosed within the boundary of a circle.
Answer: We can figure out the area of a circle by squaring the radius and multiplying the result with π.
Let's look into the formula to calculate the area of a circle.
We know that the Area of a circle is given by,
A = π r2
where, A = Area of the circle, r = radius of the circle
Steps to calculate the area of a circle:
- Find the square of the radius of the circle
- Multiply the square of the radius with π
Example: Calculate the area of a circle with a radius of 14 m.
A = (22/7) × 14 × 14
= 616 m2
