A farmer had a fence that encloses a square plot with an area of 36 meters squared. If the garnet uses this fence to enclose a circular flower garden, what will the area of the garden be?

• Math -

the square is 6x6, so the perimeter = 4*6 = 24

for the circle, area = pi * r^2 = pi * (24/2pi)^2 = 144/pi = 45.84 m^2
