As proved by Archimedes, the area enclosed by a circle is equal to that of a triangle whose base has the length of the circle's circumference and whose height equals the circle's radius, which comes to π multiplied by the radius squared: Area = π *r*^{2}

The circle is the plane curve enclosing the maximum area for a given arc length. This relates the circle to a problem in the calculus of variations, namely the isoperimetric inequality.

Q1 :

The radii of two circles are 19 cm and 9 cm respectively. Find the radius of the circle which has circumference equal to the sum of the circumferences of the two circles.

**Answer :**

Radius (*r*_{1}) of 1^{st} circle = 19 cm

Radius (*r*_{2}) or 2^{nd} circle = 9 cm

Let the radius of 3^{rd} circle be *r*.

Circumference of 1^{st} circle =
2π*r*_{1} =
2π (19) = 38π

Circumference of 2^{nd} circle =
2π*r*_{2} =
2π (9) = 18π

Circumference of 3^{rd} circle =
2π*r*

Given that,

Circumference of 3^{rd} circle = Circumference of
1^{st} circle + Circumference of 2^{nd} circle

2π*r* = 38π
+ 18π = 56π

Therefore, the radius of the circle which has circumference equal to the sum of the circumference of the given two circles is 28 cm.

The radii of two circles are 8 cm and 6 cm respectively. Find the radius of the circle having area equal to the sum of the areas of the two circles.

**Answer :**

Radius (*r*_{1}) of 1^{st} circle = 8 cm

Radius (*r*_{2}) of 2^{nd} circle = 6 cm

Let the radius of 3^{rd} circle be *r*.

Area of 1^{st} circle

Area of 2^{nd} circle

Given that,

Area of 3^{rd} circle = Area of 1^{st} circle +
Area of 2^{nd} circle

However, the radius cannot be negative. Therefore, the radius of the circle having area equal to the sum of the areas of the two circles is 10 cm.
