What is the radius of a circle that its area is 254.5 square inches???

What is the diameter of a circle if its area is 132.7 square meters??

I don't understand this because of the thing that says "square"

**Reiny**, Thursday, May 15, 2008 at 12:08amarea of circle = pi(r^2)

so for the first one :

254.5 = pi(r^2), divide both sides by pi

81 = r^2 , now take the square root of both sides

9 = r

do the second one the same way, double the answer you get for r to get the diameter.
