Q.9 Shazli took a wire of length 44 cm and bent it into the shape of a circle. Find the radius of that circle. Also find its area. If the same wire is bent into the shape of a square, what will be the length of each of its sides? Which figure encloses more area, the circle or the square? (Take $$\pi =\frac{22}{7}$$)
2$$\pi$$r = 44 cm
Or, 2 ×$$\frac{22}{7}$$ × r = 44 cm
Or, r = $$\frac{44×7}{22×2}$$
Area of circle $$\pi r^2 = \frac{22}{7} × 7×7 = 154 cm^2$$
Area of the square = $$(Side)^2 = (11)^2 = 121 cm^2$$
Since, $$154 cm^2 >121 cm^2$$
