# Circle

Circle = Flat Round Shape with All Rim Points Equidistant from Center Basics
r = Radius = distance from rim to center
d = Diameter = distance all the way across circle through its center
C = Circumference = distance around rim
A = Area = area covering surface of circle (measured in square units)

A circle occupies 360°.

π = pi
π = approximately 3.141592654 = approximately 3.14
π = ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter
π is primarily a multiplier.

When π is immediately adjacent to a number, letter, or parenthesis, an invisible multiplication sign is in force.
2π= 2 × π
πd = π × d
2(π) = 2 × π
π(d) = π × d
