Welcome to our Area of a Circle Calculator page.

We explain how to find the area of a circle and provide a quick calculator to work it out for you, step-by-step.

There is also a separate calculator which will find the radius and diameter of a circle, if you already know the area.

This calculator finds the area of a circle when the radius or diameter is known.

- Select if you want to use the radius or diameter (default is radius).
- For the value, you can choose a whole number, decimal or fraction.
- You can type a fraction by typing the numerator then '/' then the denominator.
- You can type a mixed number by typing the whole-number part, then a space then the fraction part.
- Examples: 2 1/2 (two and one-half); 3 4/5 (three and four-fifths); 7 1/3 (seven and one-third).

- Choose your units of measurement (default is cm)
- Choose your desired accuracy (default is 2 decimal places)
- Click the Find Area button
- You will be given two answers for the area, one in terms of Pi (π) and the other answer as a decimal value.

This calculator finds the radius and diameter of the circle when the area is known.

- Choose the area value: you can choose a whole number, decimal or fraction.
- Choose your units of measurement (default is none)
- Choose your desired accuracy (default is 2 decimal places)
- Click the Find Radius button
- You will be shown the radius and diameter of the circle as a decimal to the required accuracy.

The formula for the area of a circle is: A = πr^{2}, where r is the radius of the circle.
