# What is the Circumference of the Circle Below in Terms of pi (π)?

## Question: What is the circumference of the circle below in terms of pi (π)?

## (a) πr^{2} (b) 2πr (c) πr

The circumference of a circle is the perimeter of the circle. It is the total length of the boundary of the circle

## Answer: The circumference of a circle can be calculated using the expression (b) 2πr

Let's look into the expressions given

## Explanation:

(a) πr^{2 }is used to calculate the area of a circle, where r is the radius

(b) 2πr is used to calculate the circumference of a circle, where r is the radius

(c) πr is used to calculate the circumference of a semi-circle, where r is the radius

### Thus,the formula to calculate the circumference of a circle is (b) 2πr
