    This is what I think r = 4 d= 16 are = 50.24 area of square = 64 Then subtract 5024 from 64 and answer is 13.76 square inches

    Diameter is double of radius. It should be 8

    But your answer is correct as diameter has no use in area.

    I did pi r squared to get area of triangle - is that right?

    sorry that is what I meant - this is overwhelming switching between all of the figures. Then subtracted that area from area of square?
