CIRCUMFERENCE OF CIRCLES

In this module, you can study how to calculate the distance around a circle (its circumference) if you know its diameter.

The above video from Khan Academy provides an excellent introduction to understanding the radius, diameter and circumference measures of a circle.

Did you know?

The circumference of a circle is not equal to the length of two diameters.

A circle's circumference divided by its diameter is the same for every circle.  (It's pi, or 3.14)
