The easiest way to do this is to choose a base circle for all your math. Let's say your base circle has a radius of 10 and an area of 314
A 10% increase in radius is going to make it 11. 11x11x3.14=380
To get % you can do ((380-314)/314)x100 which shows that this is a 21% increase
A 50% increase in radius makes it 15. 15x15x3.14=706.5
So the answer to b is 125%
A 100% increase in radius makes it 20. 20x20x3.14=1256
So the answer to c is 300%
You really shouldn't look for answers on the internet, you don't learn the lesson intended which means you may as well not do it. When you don't know how to do something your best bet is to ask your teacher or another person in your class.
