Which of these can be written as π squared? Circle your answer. The options are π plus π, π minus π, π multiplied by π, or π divided by π.

Well, we know that π squared means π multiplied by itself. So this is the same as π multiplied by π. So therefore, the correct answer is going to be the third answer, π multiplied by π. But letβs take a look at the other answers and see what they wouldβve given us. Well, π plus π would be the same as one π plus one π, which would just be two πs. So π plus π wouldβve been two π. π minus π would be zero because anything minus itself is just going to be zero. And π divided by π is just going to be one. And thatβs because anything divided by itself is one.

So therefore, we can definitely say that π squared is π multiplied by π. And thatβs the third answer.
