The diameter is the same as the length, so it is 20 inches. If you meant to say that the circumference was 20 inches, then divide by pi, which is 3.1416 20 / 3.1416 = 6.4 inches

The area of a circle is equal to πr2 where π (pi) is equal to approximately 3.142 and r represents the radius of the circle. Because the question gives you the diameter and not the radius you have to use the measurement of the diameter to calculate the radius. Remember that the radius is equal to half the diameter. So if the diameter is equal to 18 feet, then the radius of this particular circle is equal to 9 feet. Plugging this into our equation for area we get: area = π(92) area = 3.142(81) area = about 254.5 ft2 (don't forget that the answer is in squared feet not just feet)

The diameter is twice as long as the radius. d = 2r The diameter is basically a line through the center of a circle while a radius is from the center to the circumference of a circle.

The diameter is always double the radius so in this case, it is 18cm

The radius of a circle is half the diameter, thus your measurement is 30 inches

The area of a circle, if it has a diameter of 13 feet, is: 132.7 square feet.

Diameter of a circle is defined as twice the radius. So if diameter is 12, the radius is 6.

The radius (not raduis) is 8 inches.

pi x 2.5 squared because 2.5 is the radius. the radius OS half the diameter. the formula for area of a circle is pi x r squared. pi is 3.141593

the perimeter is 3 times as long as the diameter Example: if my diameter is 7 inches long my perimeter is 3 times as much so it is 21 inches long

The area of a circle is pi(r)^2 (Pi times r squared) r = (1/2) dSo if the diameter is 13, the radius is 6.5Now use the equation:A=pi(6.5)^2A=pi(42.25)A=132.73 square inches.
