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

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?

Circle:

3.14 * 36 = 113.04 square inches

5 * 5 = 25 square inches

113.04 - 25 = 88.04 = 88.0 square inches

so the circle equals 3.14rsquare (r=3.5 square) and that equals 11

then for the square 5square and that equals 20

then 20-11=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.
