Radius=3.38 because area of a circle=(pi)(radius)^2
so 113.04 is the square root of 113.04 divided by pi

Area of the circle in the middle of the court = 113.04 square feet
Area of a circle =πr2
Value of π = 3.14
Then
Lets us assume the radius of the circle = r
113.04 = 3.14 * r2
r2 = 113.04/3.14
= 36
Then
r = 6
Then we get the radius of the circle as 6 feet. This is the easiest way of solving this kind of problems. Only thing that needs to be remembered is the formula to find the area of a circle.
