    i need to know how to work out the area of a circle by using the diameter
    so if the diameter was 12.3 what would be the answer and how would you work it out?

    divide diameter by two to get the radius.

    area = pi x radius squared

    Have you learnt any formulas for finding the area of a circle?

    A = \pi r^2
    d = 2r
    \Rightarrow A = \frac{1}{4}\pi d^2

    right so just let me check ive done this question right and if i have im sorted
    the question was find the area of a circle by using diameter=14.8cm
    so i do 14.8 divided by 2=7.4 pie time 7.4 squared=172.3

    is this correct?

    It's 172.03, but I'm guessing that was just a typing error.

    Right, this is a rhyme (!) which will mean u never 4get this formulae again!!!

    Tweedle dum and tweedle dee,
    round the circle is pie x d,
    but if the area be declared,
    the formula is pie x r squared!

    Learn this and then use it. Obviously, d is diameter and r is radius!

    Enjoy!

    You've changed the question slightly. In your first post, you said the diameter = 12.3

    But anyway, if the diameter is 14.8cm, then the area is 172.0336... (not 172.3), but you'd probably want to round that down to 172cm squared.
