# FIND THE AREA OF A CIRCLE

What is Area of a Circle ?

Area of a Circle is the region covered or enclosed within its boundary. It is measured in square units.

The formula for area of a circle is

Area = πr²

(where r is the radius of a circle)

If the given diameter of a circle, then the radius is Find the area of each circle in terms of π.

Problem 1 : Solution :

The formula for area of a circle is

= πr²

Here (r) = 15 ft.

= 15 × 15 × π

= 225π ft²

So, the area of the given circle is about 225π ft².

Problem 2 : Solution :

By observing the figure, Diameter(d) = 22 in

= (22)/2

r = 11 in

Area of a circle = πr²

= 11× 11 × π

= 121π in²

So, the area of the given circle is about 121π in².

Problem 3 : Solution :

Formula for area of circle is

= πr²

Here (r) = 9 yd

= 9 × 9 × π

= 81π yd²

So, the area of the given circle is about 81π yd².

Problem 4 : Solution :

By observing the figure, Diameter(d) = 12 yd

= (12)/2

r = 6 yd

Area of a circle = πr²

A = 6 × 6 × π

= 36π yd²

So, the area of the given circle is about 36π yd².

Problem 5 : Solution :

Area of a circle = πr²

Here (r) = 3 in

= 3 × 3 × π

= 9π in²

So, the area of the given circle is about 9π in².

Problem 6 : Solution :

Diameter (d) = 34 ft

= (34)/2

= 17 ft

Area of a circle = πr²

= 17 × 17 × π

= 289π ft²

So, the area of the given circle is about 289π ft².

Problem 7 :

If the radius is 10 ft, what will be the area of the circle?

Solution:

Area of a circle = πr²

Here (r) = 10 ft

= 10 × 10 × π

= 100π ft²

So, the area of the circle is about 100π ft².

Problem 8 :

What is the area of a circle with a diameter of 16 in?

Solution:

Diameter (d) = 16 in

= (16)/2

r = 8 in

Area of a circle = πr²

= 8 × 8 × π

= 64π in²

So, the area of the circle is about 64π in².

Problem 9 :

A cow is tethered with a rope 20 ft long. What is the maximum area the cow can graze? Express your answer in terms of π. Solution :

Given that a cow is tethered with a rope 20 ft long.

Here radius is the length of the rope.

Area of a circle = πr²

= 20 × 20 × π

= 400π ft²

Thus, the maximum area the cow can graze is 400π ft².
