Assume π=3

Since the area of the garden is 9*6 and π=3 then the radius must be around √18
(A) is out.
(B) is 54/3 = 18 but that's not √18
(C) is what I'm looking for. I'll pick that.

Area of rectangular garden A is L * W = 54

Area of circular pond B = π*r^2

Areas are equal

54 = π*r^2

54/π = r^2

√(54/π) = r
