QUESTION 1 of 10

This worksheet is about finding the circumferences and areas of circles using a calculator.

You must learn these two important formulae for a circle of radius, r :

Circumference of a circle = 2 π r

Area of a circle = π r2

Examples

Find the circumference and area of a circle of radius 6 cm.

Circumference = 2 π r = 2 x π x 6 = 12 x π = 37.7 cm  (1 dp)

Area = π r2 =  π x 62 = π x 36 = 113.1 cm2  (1 dp)

Find the circumference of a circle of radius 25 cm.
