Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we can find the radius by dividing the diameter by 2 r= 16/2 = 8 A= 3.14 * 8^2 A= 3.14 * 64 A= 200. 96

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It just depends on how they want you to write it/what to use for pi. You could write the answer as \(64\pi\), \(200.96\), or \(201.06\) depending on what you use for pi.
