#### Question

A steel wire when bent is the form of square encloses an area of 12 cm2. If the same wire is bent in form of circle. Find the area of circle.

#### Solution

Let side of square = s and length of wire be l. As wire is bent into square

l = perimeter of square = 4s.

Area of square = 121cm2 = s^{2}.

S = `sqrt(121)` = 11𝑐𝑚

∴ length of wire l = 4(11) = 44cm

As wire is bent into circle (let radius be r)

Length of wire = circumference

44 = 2𝜋r

`22/7 × 2 × r= 44 ⇒ r = (44×7)/(2×22) = 7`𝑐𝑚

𝐴𝑟𝑒𝑎 𝑜𝑓 𝑐𝑖𝑟𝑐𝑙𝑒 = 𝜋𝑟^{2}

=` 22/7` × 7 × 7

= 22 × 7

= 154𝑐𝑚^{2}
