**Circle Area Formula**

We can find the area of a circle using the formula below:

Area of Circle = x radius2 (π x r2)

phi(π) = 3, 14 or 22/7

r = radius = 1/2 diameter

#### **Example questions about the area of a circle:**

**Example question 1:**If there is a circular fish tank with a diameter of 56 m, what is the area of the fish tank?

**How to answer:**We must first find out what the radius of the tub is:

Body radius = 1/2 x 56 = 28 m

Area of the tub = x radius^{2}Then the area of the tub = 22/7 x 28 x 28

The area of the tub = 2464m^{2}

**Example question 2:**There is a playground with a semicircle shape. The diameter of the playground is 42 m, what is the total area of the playground?

**How to answer:**First find the radius = 1/2 x 42 = 21m

Area of semi circle = 1/2 x x radius

^{2}Playground area = 1/2 x 22/7 x 21 x 21

Area of playground = 1386 / 2 = 693m

#### **Tips and tricks in calculating the formula for the area of a circle**

**First:**When you want to calculate the formula for the area of a circle, determine the value of pi (️) which corresponds to the value of the radius of the circle. For example, to calculate the radius whose value is 7 and its multiple (14, 21, 28, 35, 49, etc.) then you should use phi = 22/7. You can also use the value of phi 22/7 in calculating the radius whose value is in the form of integers. Meanwhile, to calculate the area of a circle whose radius is expressed in decimal form, you better specify phi in decimal form as well, namely ️ = 3.14. This will make it easier for you to calculate the area of a circle.

**Second:**You should not be too hasty when you want to determine the value of r

^{2}, just let the calculation be in the form

**rxr**who knows later there will be values that can be removed or crossed out. For example, when you calculate r = 49, don’t rush to calculate it to be r

^{2}= 49

^{2}(2401)

**Third:**Pay close attention to the unit of length in the nature of the problem. Usually the response depends on the unit of length used in the problem.

That’s the description of **formula for area of a circle** along with examples of questions as well as tips and tricks for dealing with problems relating to the calculation of the area of a circle. if you pay attention and read carefully every explanation that I have given above, I am sure from now on you will be easier and more reliable in answering and calculating the area of a circle in the questions given at school.
