We already know that area is the space inside a 2D shape. We can find the area of a circle, but we will need a special rule.
Let's look at what happens when we unravel segments of a circle.

Interesting isn't it that when we realign the segments we end up with a parallelogram shape. Which is great, because it means we know how to find the area based on our knowledge that the area of a parallelogram has formula $A=bh$A=bh. In a circle, the base is half the circumference and the height is the radius.
$\text{Area of a circle}=\pi r^2$Area of a circle=πr2
Find the area of the circle shown, correct to one decimal place.
If the diameter of the circle is $24$24 cm, find its area correct to one decimal place.
If the radius of the circle is $9$9 cm, find its area, rounded to 2 decimal places.
Understand area and circumference of a circle. • Understand the relationships between the radius, diameter, circumference, and area. • Apply the formulas for area and circumference of a circle to solve problems.
