The area of a circle is 16π cm squared. Find the diameter of the circle.

We can calculate the area of a circle using the following formula:

A = pi x r2

The area we are given is 16pi. Therefore, we can divide both sides by pi. So,

16pi = pi x r2

becomes

16 = r2

We can squareroot both sides to calculate the value of r. 

sqrt16 = sqrt r2

Therefore r = 4

We can then use the formula d = 2r to calculate the diameter. 

Therefore the diameter of the circle is 2x4 = 8cm.
