# Math Example--Area and Perimeter--Circular Area and Circumference: Example 2

## Topic

Geometry

## Description

This example features a circle with a radius of 5 units. The objective is to calculate the circumference of the circle using the given radius. The solution involves applying the circumference formula: C = 2 * π * r = 2 * π * (5) = 10π.

Circular area and circumference calculations are fundamental in geometry. These examples provide students with practical applications of theoretical concepts, helping them understand the relationship between a circle's radius and its circumference.

Exposure to multiple worked-out examples is crucial for students to fully grasp these concepts. By seeing various scenarios and problem-solving approaches, students can develop a deeper understanding of how to apply formulas and interpret results in different contexts.

**Teacher:** "Think about the relationship between the radius and the circumference. How does doubling the radius affect the circumference? Why do we multiply by 2π in the formula, and what does each part represent?"
