Any number of possible diameters drawn on a circle should render the two halves of that circle equal. All diameters of the same circle are also equal. The radius of a circle is a line from the center point within a circle to a point on the circumference. All radii of the same circle are equal in length. The radius, by definition, is equal to one-half of the diameter. ) Knowing this relationship, we can establish the following formulas: D = 2 × R or R = 1/2 × D, where D = diameter and R = radius.
