Answer!

If the diameter of the manhole cover is 14 inches, then its radius is 7 inches and its area is π(7)^2 which equals 49π.

The diameter of the manhole itself is 12 inches, so its radius is 6 inches and its area is π(6)^2 which equals 36π.

If we subtract the area of the manhole (36π) from the area of the manhole cover (49π), we get:

49π-36π = 13π

The answer is A) 13π
