Accepted Answer

area=πr^2so we need to find the area then divide by 8so we know that diameter=2radius or diameter/2=radius so 12=diameter12/2=radius=6subsitutearea=π(6)^2area=36πdivide 36π by 836π/8=18π/4=9π/2π=4.5πarea of one section is 4.5π square feet or if we aprox pito 3.14159 then we get4.5(3.14159)=area=14.1372 square feet or 14.14 square feet
