25 pi = pi *r^2

r = 5

2*pi*r (circumference of can) = 10*pi

water ring that is 10% larger = 1.1(10*pi)
= 11*pi

2*pi*R = 11*pi
R= 11/2

The area is pi∗(11/2)^2 = 30.25*pi

Thanks PKN

water ring that is 10% larger = 1.1(10*pi)
= 11*pi<<-------------This is the measure of circumference of water ring. We are asked to determine the area of water ring.

Hi Natty97,
Please refer the highlighted portion above, circumference of water ring=$$11\pi$$
Or, $$2\pi$$*radius of circular water ring=$$11\pi$$
Or, Radius of water ring=$$\frac{11}{2}$$

So, Area of water ring=$$\pi*(\frac{11}{2})^2=30.25\pi$$

Ans. (D)

Circumference is 2πr..
So if we increase circumference by 10%, the effect will be on the radius only as other term 2π is constant...
So r becomes 1.1r

Now initial area =$$\pi*r^2=25\pi$$
And the new area is $$π*(1.1r)^2=π*1.21*r^2=1.21*πr^2=1.21*25=30.25$$

pi * r2 = 25 pi
r= 5

1.1* 5 = 5.5
5.5^2 * pi = 30.25 pi
IMO D
