## Riley is placing the game board shown on his bedroom wall. What area of the wall will the game board cover? Use 3.14 for π and round to the nearest whole square foot. The diameter of the board is 2.5 feet.

** The Area of the wall that the game will cover is 5 sq. cm. **

Here's how

The Area of the circle is calculated by

A = πr²

As we all know,

radius = Diameter / 2 ==> r = 2.5 / 2 => 1.5

So, the radius of the circle is 1.25 ft.

A = π x 1.25 x 1.25

A = 3.14 x 1.25 x 1.25

A = 3.14 x 1.5625

A = 4.90625

So, the Area of the wall that the game will cover is 4.90625 sq. cm.

## Area and Perimeter of a Circle

The area and perimeter of a circle can be calculated using its radius or diameter.

### Area of a Circle:

Area = π * radius^2

### Perimeter (or Circumference) of a Circle:

Perimeter = 2 * π * radius

If you have the diameter (D) of the circle instead of the radius (r), you can use these formulas:

### Area:

Area = π * (Diameter/2)^2

### Perimeter (or Circumference):

Perimeter = π * Diameter
