I think you meant to write that the Area is equal to πr^2 (A = πr^2). and that π = 3.14. You just have to plug in the amounts given in the equation then and solve: A = πr^2  706.5 ft^2 = 3.14(r)^2  Divide both sides by 3.14: 225 ft^2 = r^2  Now take the square root of both sides: 15 ft = r The radius is 15 feet.
