There is a water reservoir beneath a circular garden to supply a fountain in the garden. The reservoir has a 26-inch diameter. The garden has a 12-foot diameter. How much of the garden doesn't contain the water reservoir?

I have no idea how to do this please explain!!!

    Find the areas of both circles. I suggest you use 72 inches instead for the radius of the garden.

    A = pi * r^2

    i am still confused so you find the areas of both circles, but whats the formula? pi times r times 2? please help me!!!!!

  • math -

    wait so after you find the areas you subtract the reservoir from the garden to get the answer?

  • math -

    A - pi * radius squared

    Yes -- subtract the area of the reservoir from the area of the garden.

  • math -

    The answer is417.62 after finding the area of both objects and subtracting them
