#### Question

The area of a circle is 676π square centimeters. Find the diameter.

Verified

#### Step 1

1 of 3

We know that the area of the circle is given by the formula:

\begin{aligned} \text{Area of a Circle}&=\pi\cdot \text{radius}^2 \end{aligned}

we now find radius as below:

\begin{aligned} \text{Area of a Circle}&=\pi\cdot \text{radius}^2\\ 676\pi\text{ centimeters}^2&=\pi\cdot \text{radius}^2\\ ⇒\text{radius}&=\sqrt{\frac{676\pi\text{ centimeters}^2}{\pi}}\\ &=\sqrt{676\text{ centimeters}^2}\\ &=\sqrt{676}\text{ centimeters}\\ &=26\text{ centimeters} \end{aligned}

Note that we disregard the negative radius since radius must be non-negative.
