Circle Geometry Functions

In this challenge we will create a library of functions to apply the different formulas based on the geometry of circles.

For each function, you will need to design the algorithm using either Pseudo-code or a flowchart, implement the function using the Python trinket provided below and use another algorithm to test your function.

Python Code


We have already started the code for you and have completed the function getCircumference() followed by a short algorithm to test this function.

Your task is to complete this Python script to create and test all the functions mentioned above.
