# Program to calculate the area between two Concentric Circles

Given two concentric circles with radius **X** and **Y** where (**X > Y**). Find the area between them.

You are required to find the area of the green region as shown in the following image:

**Examples:**

Input :X = 2, Y = 1Output :9.42478Input :X = 4, Y = 2Output :37.6991

**Approach:**

The area between the two given concentric circles can be calculated by subtracting the area of the inner circle from the area of the outer circle. Since **X>Y**. **X** is the radius of the outer circle.

Therefore, area between the two given concentric circles will be:

π*X^{2}- π*Y^{2}

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

`// C++ program to find area between the ` `// two given concentric circles ` ` ` `#include <bits/stdc++.h> ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` ` `// Function to find area between the ` `// two given concentric circles ` `double` `calculateArea(` `int` `x, ` `int` `y) ` `{ ` ` ` `// Declare value of pi ` ` ` `double` `pi = 3.1415926536; ` ` ` ` ` `// Calculate area of outer circle ` ` ` `double` `arx = pi * x * x; ` ` ` ` ` `// Calculate area of inner circle ` ` ` `double` `ary = pi * y * y; ` ` ` ` ` `// Difference in areas ` ` ` `return` `arx - ary; ` `} ` ` ` `// Driver Program ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` ` ` `int` `x = 2; ` ` ` `int` `y = 1; ` ` ` ` ` `cout << calculateArea(x, y); ` ` ` ` ` `return` `0; ` `} ` |
