### If the radius of a circle is r what is the diameter of the circle?

The radius of a circle is half the diameter so if the radius of a circle is r, then the diameter is 2r.

### What does r in the circle mean?

R = Radius The radius is half the diameter of a circle.

### What formula is pi r divided by 2?

I don't think there is one. There is pi*r*2 (* meaning times by), which is the area of a circle. Other wise I'm not sure.

### Help with math how do you get the area of a circle?

Area of a circle is calculated by A=2*p*r where A represents the circle's area and r is the radius of the circle.

### What is r for the formula for the area of a circle?

Area of a circle = pi R2 'R' is the length of the radius of the circle. That's the distance from the center of the circle to any point on the circle.

### The area of one circle is four times as large as a smaller circle with a radius of 3 inches The radius of the larger circle is?

R = radius of big circle, r = radius of little circle Area of circle = pi x R x R = 4 x pi x r x r = 4 x pi x 3 x 3 Therefore R x R = 36 and so R = 6 inches

### What is the area of a circle when the radius is 15?
