Well, we know that the equation for getting the area of a circle is π*r^2.

In this case, we are trying to find the radius. 

The equation would be:  28.26=  π*r^2.

Divide both sides by pi to get 28.26/π = r^2

Square root both sides to get sqrt(28.26/π)=r.

Plug sqrt(28.26/π) into a calculator.

You round that answer to the nearest hundredth and you get 3 inches.

The radius is about 3 inches.
