# How to Find the Area of a Quarter Circle?

When a circle is divided into \(4\) equal parts, \(4\) quadrants are formed, and each of these quarters is known as a quadrant. In this guide, you will learn more about the quarter circle and how to find its area.

A quarter-circle is one-fourth part of the whole circle. So, the area of a quarter circle is the fourth part of the whole area of a circle.

A circle is a collection of points that are at a constant distance from a fixed point. This fixed point and fixed distance are called “center” and “radius”, respectively. A quarter-circle is one-fourth. So the area of a quarter circle is exactly one-fourth of the area of a full circle.

**Area of a quarter circle using radius**

We know that the area of a circle is \(πr^2\). A quarter-circle is a one-fourth portion of a full circle, so its area is one-fourth of the area of the circle. Thus**, **the **area of a quarter circle** in terms of radius \(\color{blue}{= \frac{πr^2}{4}}\)

**Area of a quarter circle using the diameter**

Since we have \(d = 2r\), \(r= \frac{d}{2}\). By substituting it in the above formula, we can get the area of a quarter circle in diameter.

The **area of a quarter circle** \(\color{blue}{= \frac{π(\frac{d}{2})^2}{ 4 }= \frac{πd^2}{16}}\)

**How to find the area of a quarter circle?**

Here are the steps to find the area of a quarter circle:

- If the radius \((r)\) is given, immediately replace it with the formula \(\frac{πr^2}{4}\).
- If the diameter \((d)\) is given, solve \(d = 2r\) for \(r\) and use the formula \(\frac{πr^2}{4}\) (or) immediately replace the value of d in the formula \(\frac{πd^2}{16}\).
- When the circumference \((C)\) is given, solve \(C = 2πr\) for \(r\) and replace it in the formula \(\frac{πr^2}{4}\).
- When area \((A)\) is given, solve \(A = πr^2\) for \(r\) and replace it with the formula \(\frac{πr^2}{4}\) (or) simply find \(\frac{A}{4}\).

**Finding Area of a Quarter Circle** **– Example 1:**

A circle has a diameter of \(32\space cm\), find the area of a quarter circle. \((\pi =3.14)\)

**Solution:**

Diameter of circle \(= 32\space cm\)

Area of a quarter circle \(= \frac{πd^2}{16}\)

\(=\frac{3.14 × 32^2}{16}\)

\(=\frac{3.14 × 32×32}{16}\)

\(=\frac{3215.36}{16}\)

\(=200.96\space cm^2\)
