    Area =π(r^2) so you know that their are two circles and that they equal 25 cm^2 therefore you can divide by 2 and you know one circle has an area of 12.5. divide by pie using the equation and then you have 12.5/3.14=r^2. then you can square root both sides. (12.5/3.14)^(1/2)=r. to the 1/2 power is the same as the square root. Then you get the answer of 1.999. which is about 2 cm radius.
