Distance of the outer edge of the circular ring=circumference of the circular ring =2*$$pi$$*r=44
Or, r=22/$$pi$$

So, area of the circular ring =$$\pi$$*$$\frac{22^2}{\pi^2}$$=155(Approx.)

Ans. (B)

$$2πr = 44$$

Or, $$2*\frac{22}{7}*r = 44$$

So, $$r = 7$$

Thus, The Area of the circle is $$πr^2 = \frac{22}{7}*7*7 = 154$$, Thus Answer must be (B) 155

Since circumference = 2πr:

2πr = 44

πr = 22

r = 22/π

If we use 22/7 as the approximate value of π, we have r = 22/(22/7) = 7.

Since area = πr^2, the area is approximately (22/7)(7^2) = 22 x 7 = 154 , which is closest to 155 square feet.

2*PI*R=44

R=7.

7*7*22/7=154, aprox equi to 155,option B.

2*pi*r=44
So r=7
Hence pi*r*r =154which is approximately equal to choice B
