**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, February 17, 2009 at 8:36pmI 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?

**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, February 17, 2009 at 8:50pmCircle:

3.14 * 36 = 113.04 square inches

5 * 5 = 25 square inches

113.04 - 25 = 88.04 = 88.0 square inches

**Lilly**, Tuesday, February 17, 2009 at 8:52pmso 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?

Square that and multiply by 3.14 to find the area of the circle. See above.
