pz...... give the necessary details with diagram or by drawings.

**Answer :**

**Aim :**To find the area of a circle of given radius by paper folding,cutting and pasting.

**Material Required**

1 ) Coloured Paper

2 ) Pair of scissors

3 ) Fevistick/glue

4 ) Geometry Box

**Method :**We can find that area of circle by following these steps :

**Step 1**Cut a circle of given radius from the coloured paper.

**Step 2**Divide the circle into 16 equal parts by paper folding.

**Step 3**Cut 16 parts and arrange them to form a parallelogram.

**Step 4**Take the last cutout and again divide it into 2 equal parts.

**Step 5**Arrange the 2 parts and the shape in step 3 so that a rectangle is formed.

**Step 6**Measure the length & breadth of the rectangle & calculate its area.

And the area of the rectangle is equal to the area of circle cutout at first .
