In this post we are going to learn java program to calculate area of circle using method.

#### Java program to calculate area of circle using method

To calculate the area of a circle using a method, first we have to write a method which accepts radius as parameter to calculate area of circle.

Here’s the java program for program to find area of a circle,

import java.util.Scanner;

public class AreaOfCircleMethod { public static void main(String[] args) { Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in); System.out.println("Please enter radius : "); double radius = sc.nextDouble(); double area = calculateArea(radius); System.out.println("Area of circle : " + area); sc.close(); } static double calculateArea(double r) { return (22 * r * r) / 7; } }

**Output:**

Please enter radius : 5

Area of circle : 78.57142857142857
