    It's kind of a magic number... and the symbol (pi \[\pi\]) is just used as shorthand so we don't have to keep writing out 3.1415... blah blah blah. Are you working on area of a circle or what? (which class/level are you taking?)

    Diameter = 2 * radius... and Area = 2pi*r\[Area = 2 \pi r^2\] Which info do you have that they gave you?
