If you're able to get around in Calculus, then that derivation is a nice exercise in triple integration with polar coordinates. If not, then you just have to accept the formula after others have derived it. Actually, the formula was known before calculus was invented/discovered. Archimedes used the method of exhaustion to find the formula.

Well I believe that Archimedes measured the Circumference of a circle then divided by the diameter. He then realized through simple algebra that if C/d = pi then d*pi = C

One invention Archimedes invented is the Archimedes Screw. It's still used today to irrigate crops.

archimedes, pi is the name of the greek letter p, which was used as the shortened version of the greek word perimeter,or circumference of a circle. archimedes was looking for a formula to find the area of a circle, and he required a more accurate value for the constant pi. previously pi had been assigned a very approximate value of 1/3 or 22/7.
