Default Diameter to meters squared

A vat of toluene gasoline 12 feet in diameter, determine the surface area of that pool in meters squared.

I have looked this up online everywhere and cannot find the formula for this problem.

Snow
area = Pi * radius * radius

But you will need to convert feet to meters first.
12 feet / 2 = 6 feet radius
6 feet = 1.8288 meters

Pi * 1.8288 meters * 1.8288 meters = 10.51 square meters

We have a calculator for that here:
