No,Circumference is like the perimiter and Area is the whole circle.

The circumference of a circle is the distance arround the edge of the circle. The area of a circle is how big the inside of the circle is.

No

No. A circle's area is a two dimensional concept while its circumference is one dimensional. Having said that, a circle's area and circumference can have the same numerical value. Area = pi*r2 Circumference = 2*pi*r So if pi*r2 = 2*pi*r, that is to say, if r = 2 units both will have the same numerical value.

The area of a circle is the amount of space inside the circle. The circumference of a circle is the distance around the outside of the circle. (So no, they are not the same thing.)

No, the two are quite different things.

Area = pi*r2 = 2*pi*r = circumference then r2 = 2r so that r = 2

No, because the circumference is a linear measure whereas the area is a square measure. However, they can have the same numerical value. If a circle has radius r cm, its circumference is 2*pi*r cm while its area is pi*r2 cm2. These two are numerically equal if 2*pi*r = pi*r2 that is, r = 2 when both measures are 4*pi = 12.6 approx. The fact that the dimensions are different means that, in other units (inches for example) the same circle will not have equal circumference and area. In this case, the circle has a circumference of 4.9 inches and an area of 1.9 sq inches: not the same.

It cannot be because the first is a measure of length whereas the second is a measure of area. Basic rules of dimensional analyses states that such comparisons are meaningless.However, the numerical value of the circumference of a circle and the numerical value of its area will be the same if the radius has a value of 2 in some measurement units.A circle with radius of 10 cm has a circumference of 63 cm and an area of 314 cm^2 and these are clearly not equal. But if the measurements are taken in units of 5 cm, then the radius is 2 units and the circumference is 12.6 units while the area is 12.6 square units - the same numeric value.

no, the cimcumference is the perimeter of the circle and the area included what is inside of the circle, area can be used for all shapes

If its diameter is 4 units in length then:- Area of circle: pi*2^2 = 4*pi square units Circumference of circle: 4*pi units
