# Derivation of area of circle

This construction video will provide brief information on the formula derivation toward circle area. To estimate the area of a circle, the formula A=(πR^2) is applied. You will gather knowledge on the origin of the formula and the importance of it.

Here π stands for the ratio of the diameter of a circle to its circumference, and stands for the radius of the circle.

In geometry, the area surrounded with a circle of radius r is πr2. Here, p symbolizes a constant, roughly equivalent to 3.14159, that is the same as the ratio of the circumference of any circle to its diameter.

Go through the following video, to get the detailed process.
