    So to do this question we first need to find the area of the circle A=(3.14)r^2 Where r=8

    8 to the power of 2 so it will be 64 so times that by pi

    Yes so next step is to find the area of the square we know that the half of the side length is 8 so the whole side is 16 so using the 16 as the length find the area of the square

    For a square area is A=LW So A=16x16 A=256

    So the circle takes up an 200.96 of the squares 256 so that's the probability 200.96/256 will give you some number multiply that number by 100 to get your percentage
