Differentiate $$\pi r^2$$ with respect to $$r$$.

3. ParthKohli

When you find $$f'(r)$$, find $$f'(5)$$

Thanks

The answer turns out to be the circumference.

Actually shouldn't it be like this, $$A=\pi r^2$$ Since rate of change is associated with 'time' differentiation with respect to 't'- time, $$\frac{dA}{dt}=\pi\frac{dr^2}{dt}=2\pi r\frac{dr}{dt}$$ rate of change in radius should be given
