## How to calculate the area of a circle

To calculate the area of a circle (and thus the area of a pizza), you use the formula A = Οr^2, where A is the area, Ο is pi (approximately 3.14), and r is the radius of the circle (which is half the diameter).

But you donβt have to do all these calculations with a pen and pencil β use our calculator.
