### Grade 5 - Mathematics7.17 Circle Facts

• Circle is the set of all points in a plane at a fixed distance, called the radius, from a given point, the centre.
• A circle can be drawn with the help of a compass.
• A line from the center to any point on the circle is called radius.
• The distance across a circle through its center is called its diameter.
• Diameter is twice the radius.
• A line segment joining two points on a circle shown in the figure is called a chord.
 DC is the chord SC is the diameter PC is the radius P is the center
• Diameter is the biggest chord and divides the circle into exactly two halves.
• The circumference of a circle is the perimeter of the circle.
• The distance around a circle is called its circumference.
• The formula to find the circumference of the circle is C = Pi x 2 x r
• The area of the circle is A = Pi x r2

Directions: Answer the following questions. Also draw a circle of radius 3 cm and show its center, radius, diameter.
