If you are doing this problem without a calculator, then you need to know that Π is rounded to 3.14 for practical purposes.

The formula for the area of a circle (A) is A =Πr^{2}.

r = 6 ft Π = 3.14,

A = 3.14 x 6^{2}

A = 113.04 (which is an estimated answer because Π is estimated in this case).

Therefore, the answer would be D. If you can use a calculator, then your answer will be more exact. Just realize that the estimate will put you close enough to your answer in a multiple choice setting if a calculator is not available.

A = 3.14 x 36

Given that the area, A, of a circle is defined by the following formula:

A = πr^{2} , where r is the radius of the circle ....

....then the area of a circle with a radius of 6 ft is as follows:

A = π(6)^{2} = π(36)

A = 36π = 113.09733552923

Thus, after rounding off the answer to one decimal point, the area of the circle is 113.1 ft^{2} (answer choice D).
