# Does halving the diameter result in half the area?

Relevance

A = pi*r^2

so if you halve the diameter the new area will be

A' = pi*(1/2r)^2 = pi*1/4*r^2

= 1/4 * pi*r^2

So you get 1/4 the area.

• No. It results in 1/4 of the previous area.

Let's say we have a circle with radius 10.

Now let's half that radius to 5.

314/78.5=4.03 which is basically 4. If we didn't round the area to about 78.5 and about 314,t it would have been 4 exactly.
