In the previous post, we have learned how to find the area of a circle by dividing it into congruent sectors. We have seen that we can divide the circle into as many sectors as we can to better approximate the area of a circle. In this post, we find the area of the circle […]

## The Derivation of the Area of a Circle

Finding the area of a circle is not as easy as finding the areas of triangles, parallelograms, and trapezoids. The circumference of a circle is curved, and it is not easy to fit squares in the bounded region. Knowledge in calculus is required to prove the circle’s area formally, but in this post, I will discuss […]
