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 = πr2


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


Area of new circle = π(3r)2


= 9π2


9 times of original


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