Jul 14, 2015

Area of circle with radius $5$ inches is
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$= 25 \pi$ or approximately $78.54$ square inches.

#### Explanation:

General formula for the Area of a circle with radius $r$ is
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$A \left(r\right) = \pi {r}^{2}$

In this case:
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$A \left(5\right) = \pi {5}^{2} = \pi \cdot 25 \mathmr{and} 25 \pi$

$\pi$ is approximately $3.1416$
