(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The radius of a circle is measured to be 2.4 cm +/- 0.1 cm.

Find the error in the area of the circle.

Find the error in the circumference.

2. Relevant equations

Have no idea but I'm taking a guess it could be multiplying fractional uncertainties?

3. The attempt at a solution

I got 18.09 for area and 15.08 for circumference...just need a way to go about calculating error

...really rusty in math and learning physics now, pardon the noob question.
