Walk me through this question step by step

Hello Judith,

We need to find Area (A) of a circle. Formula for area of a circle is A = πr^{2}.

d = 2r

d/2 = r (divide both sides by 2)

8/2 = r (given d = 8)

4 = r or **r = 4cm**

Now substitute the value of r in A = πr^{2}

A = 3.14 * 4 * 4

**A = 50.24cm ^{2} (**answer)
