Lets make two circles. Let the radius of the first one be 1 and the radius of the second one be 10.

What is the area of the first circle? Just leave your answer in terms of pi.

No, sweetheart. Just answer my questions. I'm trying to help you understand so you don't have to do so much work on the next problem you have that is similar to this one.

alright so what next

MertsjBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
So do you see that to find how many times bigger the second circle is we should divide the area of the second circle by the area of the first circle?

rebecca1233Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so the area of the first circle is 1

Please look at the drawing I made. For the little circle, it says A = what?

when i divide a 100 by pie i get a decimal

Do you understand so far because here is the important part which will save you work in the future?

yes. i get it :) Thanks. can you help me with a few more questions im stuck on

MertsjBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Wait. I want to teach you the general principle of the problem we just did.

In finding the area of a circle, what do you do with the radius?
 one year ago

MertsjBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
You square the radius don't you?
 one year ago

MertsjBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
So, if we make the radius 10 times bigger and then square it, since 10 squared is 100, the new circle will be 100 times bigger. Do you understand that?
