Step by step guide to solve Circles

  • In a circle, variable \(r\) is usually used for the radius and \(d\) for diameter and \(π\) is about \(3.14\).
  • Area of a circle \(=πr^2\)
  • Circumference of a circle \(=2πr\)

Circles – Example 1:

Find the area of the circle.

Solution:

Use area formula: Area \(=πr^2\),
\(r=6\) \(in\), then: Area \(=π(6)^2=36π, π=3.14\) then: Area \(=36×3.14=113.04\) \(in^2\)

Circles – Example 2:

Find the Circumference of the circle.

Solution:

Use Circumference formula: Circumference \(=2πr \)
\(r=9 \) \(cm\) , then: Circumference \(=2π(9)=18π \)
\(π=3.14\) then: Circumference \(=18×3.14=56.52\) \(cm\)

Circles – Example 3:

Find the area of the circle.

Solution:

Use area formula: Area \(=πr^2\),
\(r=6\) \(in\), then: Area \(=π(4)^2=16π, π=3.14\) then: Area \(=16×3.14=50.24\) \(in^2\)

Circles – Example 4:

Find the Circumference of the circle.

Solution:

Use Circumference formula: Circumference \(=2πr \)
\(r=9 \) \(cm\) , then: Circumference \(=2π(6)=12π \)
\(π=3.14\) then: Circumference \(=12×3.14=37.68\) \(cm\)
