The diameter of a circle is the distance across the inside of a circle through the center. It is twice the measure of a radius. The radius is half the measure of a diameter. It is a line segment with one end point at the center of the circle and the other endpoint on the edge of the circle. The circumference of a circle is the distance around it. A chord is a line segment that connects any two points on a circle. The area of a circle is the space contained within the circumference. The ratio of the circumference of a circle to the diameter of a circle is approximately equal to 3.14 or . This ratio is called Pi ( ) and is the same for all circles. 22 7 d = 12 in. ; A = ? d = 12 A = r 2 A 3.14 (6) 2 A 3.14 36 A 113.04 in.2 C = 2 r C 2 3.14 5 C 31.4 ft r = 6 r = r = 5 ft ; C = ? d 2 r = 12 2 12 in. 5 ft C = d C 3.14 10 C 31.4 ft d = 10 ft ; C = ? © Copyright NewPath Learning.
