How do you prove area of a circle?

Integrate an incremental area
dArea = r dr dTheta from r=0 to R, and Theta from zero to 2PI radians.

Area= INT INT dTheta rdr dTheta
Area= 2PI (1/2 R^2)= PI R^2

    radius (r) of a cicrlce is divided into 10 equal sections. The area of the circle = sum of the areas of the pie-shaped sections. We can estimate the area of the circle by thinking of each pie-shaped piece as a triangle with base B
