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}.

Answer A
