Area and Circumference


Find the Area and Circumference of a Circle.

Tweedle-dee-dum and Tweedle-dee-dee,
Around the circle is pi times d,
But if the area is declared,
Think of the formula pi "r" squared.

"Around the circle" is the circumference.
Circumference = pi x d (diameter).
Area = pi x r(radius) squared.
