## 1. How to find the area and circumference of the circle?

**Circumference of the circle** is the measurement of the edge of the circle. Whereas the **area** of the circle represents the region occupied by it.

To determine area and circumference we need to identify the radius of the circle. So, the program will indicate the user to enter the radius. Based on the input it would determine the values.

To make it easier we have taken the standard PI value as 3.14 (constant) in the program.

### 1.1. What is the formula for the Area of a Circle?

Given that we know the radius the area of circle is calculated as-

A= πr^{2}

### 1.2. What is the formula for the Circumference of a Circle?

Given that we know the radius the circumference of the circle is calculated as-

C = 2πr

So let’s see how it to calculate area and circumference of a circle mathematically.

ExampleInput:radius: 5Output:The Area of circle is: = 3.14 * 5 * 5 = 78.500000 The Circumference of circle is: = 3.14 * 5 * 5 = 31.400002

## 2. C Program to find the area and circumference of the circle

Let’s discuss the execution(kind of pseudocode) for the program *to find the area and circumference of the circle* in C.

- Initially, we ask the user to enter the
**radius**of the circle. - The input gets stored in the
`int radius`

, and the value of the**PI, area,**and**circumference**gets stored in the`float PI = 3.14, area, circumference`

respectively. - Now, we perform the calculations on the input to get the area and circumference of the circle using the specified formula.
- After the calculations, print the results on the console.

Let us now implement the above execution of the program *to find the area and circumference of the circle in C.*

#include <stdio.h> int main() { int radius; float PI = 3.14, area, circumference; printf("Enter the radius of circle: "); scanf("%d", &radius); area = PI * radius * radius; printf("The Area of circle is: %f", area); circumference = 2 * PI * radius; printf("\nThe Circumference of circle is: %f", circumference); return 0; }

OutputEnter theradius of circle: 2 TheArea of circleis: 12.560000 TheCircumference of circleis: 12.560000
