We know:

Circumference = Distance (d) x π = 10π

Radius = Distance / 2 = 10/2 = 5

Area = A = π x r^2 = π x 5^2 = 25π

Correct Answer:

D

Solution



Given
In this question, we are given that
    • A circle’s circumference is \(10π\) centimeters long

To find
We need to determine
    • The area of the circle, in square centimeters

Approach and Working out
If we assume the radius of the circle to be R cm, then we can write
    • \(2πR = 10π\)
    Or, \(R = 5\) cm

Hence, the area of the circle = \(πR^2 = π(5)^2 = 25π\) square cm

Thus, option D is the correct answer.

Correct Answer: Option D

(E) \(10π\)


The formula for the circumference of a circle is C = 2πr.

10π = 2π(r)
r = 5

The formula for a circle is A = πr^2

A = π(5)^2
A = 25π

The answer is (D).

Use the circumference formula: C = 2πr

10π = 2πr

5 = r

Now use the area formula: A = πr^2

A = π25 = 25π

The area is 25π square centimeters.

Answer: D
