# If the radius of a circle is tripled, the area becomes

A. 9 times

B. 3 times

C. 6 times

D. 30 times

Answer :

Let r be the radius of a circle.

∴ Area of circle = πr^{2}

If radius is tripled, then new radius will be 3r.

∴ Area of new circle = π(3r)^{2}

= 9π^{2}

9 times of original

Hence, the area of a circle becomes 9 times to the original area.
