Area of Circles - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

The area of circles is derived by dividing a circle into an infinite number of wedges formed by radii drawn from the center. When these wedges are rearranged, they form a rectangle whose height is the radius of the circle and whose base length is half of the circumference of the circle. The area of circles are also used in sectors, segments and annuluses.
