Find the area of the circle. Then find the area of the square. Subtract the square's area from the circle's area.

sorry my sister typed in her name so it says her name not mine
that's my answer...12.7

I got a different answer.
Did you use this formula for the area of the circle? A = pi * r^2
Did you multiply 5 * 5 for the area of the square?

math  Lilly, Tuesday, February 17, 2009 at 8:41pm
yes ma'm

Circle:
3.14 * 36 = 113.04 square inches
5 * 5 = 25 square inches
113.04  25 = 88.04 = 88.0 square inches

math  Lilly, Tuesday, February 17, 2009 at 8:52pm
so the circle equals 3.14rsquare (r=3.5 square) and that equals 11
then for the square 5square and that equals 20
then 2011=9
the answer is 9?

The radius is 6 inches.
Square that and multiply by 3.14 to find the area of the circle. See above.
