## Formula to calculate the circumference and area of a circle

These are the formulas to calculate the circumference and area of a circle:

c = 2πr
A = πr² = πd²/4

, where:

• c stands for circumference;
• r for radius; and
• d for the diameter of the circle.

π is a constant approximately equal to 3.14159265359 and, among other things, represents the circumference-to-diameter ratio of any circle.

## How to find the circumference and area of a circle?

Suppose you want to know how to find the circumference and area of a circle with an 8 cm radius. In that case, these would be the steps to follow:

1. Use the formulas to calculate the circumference and area: c = 2πr and A = πr².
2. The circumference should equal c = 2π × 8 cm = 50.265 cm.
3. The area should equal A = π × (8 cm)² = 201.06 cm².
4. To check your results, input the 8 cm diameter in the calculator. The results should also be 50.265 cm and 201.06 cm².

## FAQ

### How are the circumference and area of a circle related?

They relate to each other by the following formula: c = 2√(πA). The equation says circumference is proportional to the square root of the area, so the bigger the circle size, the greater the circumference.

### What is the area of a 9-inch circle?

63.617 in². To find the area of any circle, given its diameter:

1. Multiply π (pi) by the diameter square: π × (9 in)² = 254.47 in².
2. Divide that result by four:
254.47 in²/4 = 63.617 in².
3. Now you know what the area of a 9-inch circle is ✔️

### How do I find the area of a quarter-circle?

To get the area of a quarter-circle:

1. Take the formula of the area of an ordinary circle: A = πr².
2. Divide that formula by four.
3. After following these steps, we can note that the area of a quarter circle is A = πr²/4.
