If the length of the side of the square is 4 units, the radius of the circle must be 2 units. Therefore, the area of the circle is πr^2 = π(4) = 3.1415 * 4 = approx. 13 units.
Answer is D.

Side of the square is \(4\) units. Diameter of circle = side of square =\(4\) Radius(r) of circle = \(\frac{Diameter}{2}\) =\(\frac{4}{2}\) =2 Area of circle = pi\(r^2\) PS: i don't know how to insert π notation so i used pi.
Area of circle= \(3.14*2^2\) \(=12.56\) Area is approx \(13\) unit
Answer: D

Answer = D) 13 Circle is inscribed, so radius = 2 \(Area = \pi 2^2 = 3.14 * 4 = 12.56 \approx{13}\)

From the figure the diameter of the circle =4 units
So area = Area = 3.15*r^2=3.15*4 =13 Approx.
Answer D

Diameter of the circle = Side of the square = 4 units Area of the circle = 3.14 * (Diameter)^2/4 = 3.14* 16/4 = 12.56 = 13 (Approx) Answer D.

Note that whatever the area of this circle may be, it must be less than the area of this square. The area of the square (in square units) is: A = s^2 = 4 × 4 = 16. Therefore, the area of the circle is a little less than 16. Choice D is the only close answer. For the record, the near exact area of the circle is: A = π^2 = 3.14(2)^2 = 12.56 or 13. Note that the decimal approximation for π is 3.14 while the fractional approximation is 22/7. Answer: D.

Attachment: 20141124_1823.png A) π B) 4 C) 8 D) 13 E) 16 Since the square has a side of 4, the diameter of the circle is 4, and the radius is 2. Thus, the area is π x 2^2 = 4π ≈ 4 x 3.14 = 12.56. The nearest integer to 12.56 is 13. Answer: D
