Circumference and Area of Circles
Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its
diameter.
This ratio is the same for all circles.
The symbol for pi is

Approximate Value of Pi………
Usually in this class, we will leave pi as a constant.
For example, we may say that the area of a circle is
5π, or 6aπ, or 12.6π, etc. The π symbol will remain in
our expression.
When you need to use a decimal approximation of pi:
π ≈ 3.14
When you need to use a fractional approximation of pi:
π≈

9. Nick wants to enclose his brand new GEO in a circular
fence that costs \$2.95/ft. If the circle has a radius of
3.5 ft., how much will the fencing cost? (use 22/7 for π.)
We need to find Circumference:
C = 2(3.5)(22/7)
C = 7(22/7)
C = 22 ft.
Cost = 22 • 2.95 = \$64.90
