Area of Circle:
Pi * R^2
=>4 * Pi * R^2 / 4
=> 4*Pi^2*R^2/ (4*Pi)
=> (2*Pi*R)^2/(4*Pi)
=> Circumference^2/(4*Pi)

Area of a circle

Circumference = 2*Pi*R
Hence Circumference squared = 4 * Pi^2 * R^2
So Circumference squared/4Pi = 4 * Pi^2 * R^2/(4 * Pi) = Pi*R^2
= Area of Circle

What does 2 squared, plus the circumference of a circle, minus twice the product of the circle's radius and pi, minus the cube root of 8, equal?

First Clue: this is not related to the area of a circle (pi r squared). What's interesting about pi, is that it comes in 2 forms: digital (3.14159....) and degrees of a 1/2 circle (180 degrees). And a sine wave is an incredibly beautiful curve found everywhere in nature.

Once you get the answer, memorize it and how you arrived at it. And it will serve as a reference for problem solving in wave mechanics.

Remember, according to the De Broglie Wave Equation, everything in the entire Cosmos travels as both a wave and a particle. And sine waves, or approximations to sine waves, are the standard form of travel representing everything from light waves, sound waves, to waves on an ocean.

The study of wave mechanics will then lead you to the understanding of Fourier Analysis/Transformation, noise cancellation head phones, and unlimited adventures in science and math.

Moral of the story: Sine Waves rule! And to figure out how powerful they are you must know how to integrate the area/volume.
Second Clue: "integrate".

A quarter-circle with radius R is drawn. Inside it, two semicircles and a circle are drawn as shown in the below figure. If the area of the white colored region is (Pi*R^2)/X then find the value of X?

You have a patch of dead shrubs you want replaced with sod. But there's a hornet's nest in the middle, and therefore to avoid
getting stung you can't measure the radius or diameter to plug into the formula: area = pi r squared.

And in order to get a price quote from the landscaper you need the square footage.

You can however easily measure the circumference.

Question: what is the area of this circle of dead shrubs if the circumference is 100 ft?
