Re: Which of the following expresses the area of a circle in ter [#permalink]
The circumference of a circle is computed as $$C = 2\pi r$$, while the area of a circle is $$A =\pi r^2$$.

Looking at the choices, it is easy to notice that there is no r in them. This means we have to substitute for r into the formula of the area.

In other words, from the circumference formula we get $$r= \frac{C}{2pi}$$, which can be used to substitute into the area formula $$A =\pi (\frac{C}{2pi})^2 = \pi\frac{C^2}{4pi^2} = \frac{C^2}{4pi}$$. Re: Which of the following expresses the area of a circle in ter   [#permalink] 09 Oct 2017, 07:54
