#### Explanation:

The area of a circle is given by formula:
color(blue)(pir^2
Where,
$\pi$ has a constant value of $\approx 3.14$
and $r$ denotes the radius.

The radius of the circle is $r = 1.5 m$

The area $= \pi {r}^{2} \approx 3.14 \times {\left(1.5\right)}^{2}$

$= 3.14 \times \left(2.25\right)$

$= 7.065$ ${m}^{2}$
