excel function to give the area of a circle?
With the radius in A1:
=PI()*A1^2
Or, with the diameter in A1:
=PI()*(A1/2)^2

Kind regards,

I'm working my way through learning to build spreadsheets. How would I
create
the function to give the area of a circle. I know the formula
A=PI*r(squared)
but don' know the excel functions. I tried "=(PI)*(Power('diameter
cell'/2),2)" but that wouldn't work.
