Here's a quick overview of what a circle is and a few different concepts related to the shape.

Circle — The Basics

A labeled diagram of a circle

A circle is the set of all points in a plane that are at a fixed distance ( called radius and denoted by r\hspace{0.2em} r \hspace{0.2em}) from a certain point, its center (O)\hspace{0.2em} (O) \hspace{0.2em}.

Now, a line segment from one point on the circle to another point on it that also passes through the center is known as a diameter (d)\hspace{0.2em} (d) \hspace{0.2em} of the circle.

Also, the length of the diameter is twice that of the radius.

d=2rd = 2r

Circumference and Area of a Circle

Cicumference refers to the perimeter (or the length of the boundary) of a circle. And here's the formula for the circumference of a circle in terms of its radius r\hspace{0.2em} r \hspace{0.2em} or diameter d\hspace{0.2em} d \hspace{0.2em}.

C=πd=2πr\begin{align*} C \hspace{0.25em} &= \hspace{0.25em} \pi d \\[1em] &= \hspace{0.25em} 2 \pi r \end{align*}

Finally, the area of a circle is given by

A=πr2A = \pi r^2



Find the circumference of a circle with a radius of 4 cm\hspace{0.2em} 4 \text{ cm} \hspace{0.2em}.


The formula for the circumference of a circle is

C=2πrC \hspace{0.25em} = \hspace{0.25em} 2 \pi r

Substituting the value of r\hspace{0.2em} r \hspace{0.2em} into the formula, we have

C=2π4=25.13\begin{align*} C \hspace{0.25em} &= \hspace{0.25em} 2 \pi \cdot 4 \\[1em] &= \hspace{0.25em} 25.13 \end{align*}

So the circumference of the circle is 25.13 cm2\hspace{0.2em} 25.13 \text{ cm}^2 \hspace{0.2em}


The circumference of a circle is 7πunits\hspace{0.2em} 7 \pi \text{units} \hspace{0.2em}. Find its area.


The area of a circle is given by the formula

A=πr2A \hspace{0.25em} = \hspace{0.25em} \pi r^2

As you can see, we need r\hspace{0.2em} r \hspace{0.2em}. And we can find it using the circumference (provided in the question) as follows.

C=2πr7π=2πrr=3.5\begin{align*} C \hspace{0.25em} = \hspace{0.25em} 2 \pi r \\[1em] 7 \pi \hspace{0.25em} = \hspace{0.25em} 2 \pi r \\[1em] r \hspace{0.25em} = \hspace{0.25em} 3.5 \end{align*}

Now, substituting the value of r\hspace{0.2em} r \hspace{0.2em} into the formula for area, we get —

A=π×3.52=38.48\begin{align*} A \hspace{0.25em} &= \hspace{0.25em} \pi \times 3.5^2 \\[1em] &= \hspace{0.25em} 38.48 \end{align*}

So the area of the circle is 38.48 sq. units\hspace{0.2em} 38.48 \text{ sq. units} \hspace{0.2em}.
