The Circumference of a circle (C) equals the number "pi" times the diameter of the circle (d). "pi" (3.14159...) is a number which you can never find the value of precisely, the numbers after the decimal point go on for ever. Given this information you can calculate what you need to know about your circle.

The diameter of a circle is twice its radius or its largest chord passing through the center of the circle.

It is very close to 7 cm. Circumference = pi (2r) c = 6.2832 r = 44 44/6.2832 = 7.003

-- If you know either the area or the circumference of the circle, you can calculate the other one. -- If you don't know either the area or the circumference, then you have to either measure the circle's diameter, or ask around and try to find someone who already knows what the length of the diameter is. -- Once you have the diameter, take 1/2 of it. That's called the circle's "radius". -- The area of the circle is (pi) x (radius)2 -- The circumference of the circle is (2 pi) x (radius) or (pi) x (diameter). (Pi) is a number that can never be exactly written down, so the best you can do is use some number that's close. The closer your number is to (pi), the closer your answer will be to the truth, but it can never be exactly and perfectly correct. (Pi) is approximately 3.1415926 . But the easiest and most practical way to work with it is to use 22/7 for it. If you do that, then your answers are only about 0.04 percent wrong, and that's actually pretty darn good.

to 13sf its 81.053090462 but that is what retards would put, the best way of putting it is 25.8π

divide by pi (3.14159) 11.93

The ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Best fit is 355/113, which is correct to 6 places.

It is very close to 7 cm. Circumference = pi (2r) c = 6.2832 r = 44 44/6.2832 = 7.003
